Head and top of torso. I never intended to go this far really, but my initial interest is the vision and AI system, and I wanted to print ‘just enough’ to have fully mobile neck, head and eyes.
this is also what i have planed when i get my prusa mk2 fixed i have the skull done and the eyes and a few pieces of the torso need all the head internals tho

Hi Mats, thanks for the links. I had seen the first one, but not the Andreas version. My build so far (which is only the skull really) uses the standard huge servo for the neck, so I’ll have to see how much space I can find. I’m using the ‘new eye mechanism’ on Gael’s Build Yours log, as well as the articulated neck based on Bob Houston…[Read more]
I am using PETG, and really like the strength and finish that I\’m getting. Mostly I like that it prints without odour or fumes, as I find ABS quite unpleasant to have printing in the same room where I am working.
I want to try and fit a Raspberry Pi inside the skull if I can, and as I had a ‘spare’ Pi Camera laying around I modified another part to make a Pi Camera version of EyeBallSupport_X_LeftV1. Posted to Thingiverse.
I’m not sure if you have seen this: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:994720
I made several modifications to the interior of the head to make it possible to fit the PI in the head. Perhaps it can give you some ideas. After making it I changed the back of the neck to use this design. http://www.thingiverse.com/make:251020 made by Andreas.

Looks great, but you had me worried for a moment when I compared to mine! Is there a reason you\’ve mounted the eye mechanism upside down vs. Gael design? Does it give you some benefit? I don\’t have a completed skull yet, to see how the clearances and space work out with your orientation.
Hi Wayne – very good point about it being upside down! I am not sure if it will fit in the head that way around but at least I could hold it in the vice whilst taking the video. Been waiting on the camera parts to arrive before I finish the head – camera finally arrived yesterday.
