I have been a bit quiet, but not the machines.
Will take more pictures and add to this topic, sort of "summary" or "overview" as the build goes on.
Can tease with this one picture right of the bat.
Printed on a heavily modified Anycubic Kossel.
One more from my slightly modified Ender. A bit of a "failed" print. But adaptive layers are awesome, if provided with proper infill!
I have full intentions making it fully working. If I make it with an underpowered motor and controlled via BT or properly as Olle's is, have not been decided.
But electric doors and all LEDs are a given functionality that has to be added!
Colorscheme is not decided yet. But Johannes gave me the idea of making it a tribute to Jesko. Which does contain my favourite "colors" and choice of accents.
- Some parts like headlights will be made with Addnorth textura, other similar detailed parts like this will have the same material.
- Regular body material consists of PLA from various vendors.
- Wear and tear will be tried with PETG (3dprima) and carbonfibre/nylon (addura x).
If addura can't take the beating, I will have to get the drivetrain cnc machined instead.
Thanks Olle, i have only been playing with typical sg90 servos, so this will be interesting!
Some more Textura Black Matte parts and a "arduino" board, think i am going with the hc05 bt approach for lights and servo control. Unprocessed signal from arduino can control servos quite nicely and handle rgb signals if rgb is wanted. Fun and fidly with salvaged smd rgb leds.
