My R2 is currently weighing in at around 25Kg give or take a bit,
I still need to finish printing and installing the retractable mount fo the center foot and the center foot on that.

That also doesn't could all the failed parts including the whole slightly undersized dome.

I haven't kept a close record of what i used as I knew it was going o be a lot, I also didn't track the materials for either of my inmoov robots.

The real costs you won't see to much later when you sit back and look at it, all the servos, motors and control systems will add up as well, don't forget the paint and body filler and of course there is also the electricity to run the printer and later to charge the batteries while you are playing with your droid.
And if you are playing with your droid, there will be mishaps, so you will need to add in the filament for those repairs or modifications.

I know I had to reprint parts of an Inmoov arm one due to a faulty voltage regulator...

Yeah mine was about 2500 hours , I did a spreadsheet of all parts and times (which was approx.) as most parts were printed overnight or may of finished during the day while I was at work.
I think it was about 525 parts?

Yeah, I've already had a handful of failed prints, so I'm sure it's gonna get up there. 

And you make it sound like so much fun haha! I hadn't even thought about filler and putty yet! That's a solid point. It's an endeavor for sure, but I'm excited for it. 

Also, I'd love to see more about your Inmoov build. I hadn't heard about that until you mentioned it.

Yeah, I haven't bothered with print times for that reason and using the printers for other things here and there. That's more parts than I expected to be honest! Didn't realize you could fit that many in him!

f you have a look at http://inmoov.fr/ for more info on the project and to download the STL files.
You can also join the community there as well.

Also one of our other R2D2 droid builders has a Youtube channel where he shows his build of Nigel his inmoov and later his R2D2 build.
