Time to get the printers warmed up!!

In this tutorial I will show you how to assemble the leg parts for non motorized version. It is pretty easy if your prints are correctly printed without warping otherwise, you will have a hard time to join all the parts together.

Beware that some of these parts are really big and exceed the standard 12x12x12 cm.

Some of these parts require support during 3D printing, so please check the bellow list.

Here is the list of parts and the number of prints needed for the legs:

Ankle:

Tibia:

Knee:

Thigh:

Step1:

The non motorized legs are mainly for show. They allow to have the robot standing up on it’s own legs. The robot will be bolted and fixed to a large 60x60cm plate for to assure it’s stability.

A 10mm rod will run from bottom plate to the top of the legs.

      Hello,
      The only way to avoid warping when printingbig parts in ABS is to have a closed printer which keeps a permanent inside temperature and avoids any outside draft.
      Also printing on glass is up till now the best solution I have been using which keeps the part safely attached to the heated bed.

    thank`s Gael, i have a prusa i3, Works superfine, i print in a heated bed with mirror i supose you refer to this when you say print on glass, i´ll print the small pieces and work on an enclosure to my printer, other alternative is usin a infrared lamp but is very expensive in the electricall bill, jejejeje, I give you my congratulations and a very strong hug

      Bonsoir,
      La tige fileté traverse la cheville et le pied pour aller se loger et traverser(ou pas) footBoltHolder. FootboltHolder peut-être utiliser dans deux sens différent, il peut être vissé à la planche(plateau) qui sera sous les pieds du robots, ou bien comme si c’est un servo moteur dans le logement de AnkBackFoot.
