Thread: HR-OS1 3D Models & 3D Printed Armor

    Re: HR-OS1 3D Models & 3D Printed Armor

    Hi, say how does this shapeways store you were going to set up work? I have never shipped out for parts (3-D parts) so will this
    be like a package/kit that we can buy from you all or what? I'm working with different materials on my 3-D printer right now, seems all abs formulas are not the same.

    OMG! This dam 3-D printer is mesmerizing me.

    I had a question regarding the head: Why was this shape chosen over the other shape heads I've seen (like the "traditional" Jimmy head). Was it the weight?

  5. Re: HR-OS1 3D Models & 3D Printed Armor

    It is just a design, I think the weight is not a problem even if you print with any plastic in the market, but especially with nylon it is like a feather. That is why at the specification of the trossent site they say "Body panels: 3D printed nylon"

    I think PLA is even less dense than Nylon.
    I think the real reason is that the default/best plastic on Shapeways is Nylon! (They call it "strong and flexible")

  7. Re: HR-OS1 3D Models & 3D Printed Armor

    But PLA is not as flexible as Nylon and will crack.

    It's just an aesthetic design I came up with, but I was trying to keep it quite a bit smaller.

    Jimmy, while cute, has an impractically large head. We had a lot of problems with the head cracking like an egg when it would take a hard fall. Furthermore, we don't own the IP to open source the Jimmy 3d models, and the owner of those chose not to release them. I have a few different head designs that should be ready for release in the next week or two though, among some hand variations.

    AH, HA! The L-bracket's are for mounting the body shells ;-)
    Should have a full set of black abs skins in a day or so.
