Printed Parts for R2D2
09/14/19 - Welcome
to the Media
Conversions R2-3D 3D printing web pages.
These pages are being revised. New models are being posted. It's a time
consuming process. If you've got a particular item you are looking for,

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 not a master of 3D
printing I've seen what it's capable of doing.
3D Part Models
part of the design process I create 3D models of
the R2 parts that I'm building. The published models are based on the
R2BC drawings now being called CS:L (Club Spec: Legacy). For a while I
was publishing 3D models for what was called R2.0. Those parts are now
referred to as CS:R (Club Spec: Revisited). The models that were here
are obsolete. For more information on the changes see the Droidwiki
article "CSR Overview and Files" The new CS:R parts have been released in 3D format. For more information see the Forum thread "Club Spec: Revisited.... "
If I have to make modifications to the parts to make it
easier to print them that information will be illustrated, but not
published. I'm using Alibre
Design's 3D design package and I'm publishing the models in STEP AP203
(.stp) format in English (inch) units 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. For example see this design for a Modified Utility Arm.
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
