3D Models & Printed Parts for R2D2

Welcome to the Media Conversions  R2-3D 3D web pages. 

03/27/16 - 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.

Associated 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.

Background - A little bit about 3D printing and how I got to where I am now.

3D Part Models

There's 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.

I'm 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 members.
