A childhood dream becomes reality

Hello,

Here I would like to start my construction report. I have already printed all the parts except a few things. Dome + Domedrive, body and legs are already assembled.

That's how it looks right now

Hello,

Here is a little update from my R2D2. I finished the CenterFoot. I built it the way Michael intended, except for a trifle. I replaced the mounting screws of the foot on the body with 6mm studs because the square nuts did not fit in the slots provided. They were just too fat.

Otherwise, everything fit together perfectly. Thanks again to Michael for his great work.

Hello,

a short update. I assembled the first drive today. Everything worked perfectly well, but during the test run it always pulled the toothed belts off the drive pulleys. The problem was that the two pulleys (engine and drive wheel) were not 100% aligned.
There is also a relatively large amount of play in the axle construction of the main drive wheel. After I minimized the game by means of a brass sleeve and washers, the drive is now running quite well.
Only the clamping screws of the engine tensioner still hit the footshell. Since I'll probably have to run again with the Dremel.

Nice build! I started mine a few weeks a go but had to stop because the nozzle heater went on my printer. Waiting for parts from China to arrive so I can get back up and running.

Which motors did you use for the foot drive and are they 12 or 24 volt?

cheers
