Models & Printed Parts for R2D2
to the Media
Conversions R2-3D 3D web pages.
- I'm collecting and re-organizing all of my engineering drawings, and
3D cad files, on these web pages. These pages started as a collection
of 3D models of CS:L parts that, at the time, were only available as 2D
drawings. I'm doing this in order to simplify managing the drawing
collection and web site. Eventually the part drawing links that are on
my R2-D2 web pages will point to drawings on this website.
with each part page is a set of files that have been zipped for
downloading. It will typically including the image file (<part
name>.png or <part name>.jpg), the 3D.pdf file (<part
name>.3d.pdf), and a 3D CAD file in STEP AP203
(.stp) format in English (inch) units
(<part name>.stp). For some of the parts there will may be a 2D
Autocad drawing (<part name>.dwg) and/or a notations text
file (<part.name>.txt) that will have information about
differences between my models and the corresponding Club Spec drawings.
If possible, I'll provide links to the corresponding Club Spec drawings
that are found on the R2BC web site.
little bit about 3D printing and how I got to where I am now.

lots more to
building a droid than meets
the eye. There are an incredible number of small parts that are, in
some cases, rather difficult to machine. Trust
me, before I decided that 3D printing had matured enough to print parts
I spend a bit of time trying to figure out how to machine the small
parts for R2. Most of them are beyond my ability to
manufacture with the tools I've got available. While I'm new to 3D
printing I've seen what it's capable of doing.
Most of he published models are based on the
CS:L (Club Spec: Legacy) R2BC drawings. I created 3D models because the information on those parts was only available in 2D drawings. The new CS:R (Club Spec: Revisited) parts have been released in 3D format. For more information on the changes see the Droidwiki
article "CSR Overview and Files" and the Forum thread "Club Spec: Revisited.... "
I'm using Geomagic/Alibre
Design's 3D design software and I'm publishing the models as well as in 3D.pdf format.

just starting out building up my list of parts that I can actually
print. Printing is harder that 3D modeling in that not everything you
can model can be printed with acceptable results. In addition, I like
to add features to my parts that make them more useful than standard
part designs. Note
that I'm more than willing to make custom versions of 3D printed parts
on request. There is no charge for the customization, with the
caveat that I retain
the design information and can sell copies of the part to other R2BC
