My iRobot

I had my printer for a couple months now and haven't done anything to big with it yet. I decided to start on the long journey of building inMoov. InMoov was created by Gael_Langevin and he made it possible for anyone to build this. His thingiverse is http://www.thingiverse.com/Gael_Langevin/about. I think it will be really cool to have your own iRobot pretty much. Plus I know my little ones will love this alot. I will be updating my progress as I build this. Right now I'm working on printing out the head first and will continue on from there. Everything will be printed with Hatchbox Black PLA and maybe will throw in some Red PLA.

I got most of the head printed up. I'm just lacking the skull part which takes about 9 hours to do. My roll of filament is running low so I been trying to print all the smaller stuff first so I don't run out in the middle of a print. I still need to remove some of the support and brim.

I got some of the neck printed up. I started to have some layer shift as you can see on the large gear. I figure out that my x aisle belt was loose so I printed a thicker belt tensioner. Also notice my z steps were off cause the screw holes were a little oval. I got that fix now also.

 

Here is a few parts for the jaw. I mostly just got bigger stuff to print now that take 5+ hours. Still got a long ways to go but things are looking pretty good.
