When it rains it pours. Today you get not one but two new figure releases!
I've placed the zipped beta versions for both up on Google Drive, and done a quick and dirty update on my Templates page, with more assembly details forthcoming. Fair warning, I haven't had a chance to fully print either yet, but I've got the first pieces started this morning. With any luck, I might have both completed in another 2-3 weeks. As always, if you're going to pay someone to print for you, probably best to wait for me or some of the other users to fully test it before shelling out any money for something that may not work.
027 - Mk. VII Robotic Cleaner
Version 1 - Updated 11/30/2019
Beta: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1kIM-_ ... y8esjtn0op
The Cleaner Robot is formatted with SLA resin printing in mind. If you have a high resolution FDM printer, you can try it in PLA+, but some of the smaller parts may self-destruct at the level of detail required. There is a separate folder inside the zip file containing the optional wheeled bin accessory and a set of legs to stick out the back, plus a set of free-standing Kroagnon eyes, if you don't want to print out the full figure.
There are also two versions of the saw blade. A tapered version that might come out sharp enough to actually cut you, and a flatter version that should be a bit safer if you have kiddies in the house.
The Wheelie Bin has a removable lid and a reversible 3-prong frame for the legs which will give you the option of sticking either one or two legs out the back, depending if you want your leg(s) to belong to a Yellow Kang or Caretaker.
The underside of the figure comes with mounts for UniBlock LED Bricks
for the headlights, and a 47715c01 Lego Technic pull-back motor. If you are going to use the Lego motor, I recommend not even bothering to go with the printed wheels and axles and just use the following off-the-shelf Lego pieces instead (you can find most for a couple of cents each on https://www.bricklink.com
028 - Kroagnon
Version 1 - Updated 11/30/2019
Beta: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1I6-ZY ... Z2D78nX92o
Kroagnon comes with both PLA and SLA printing files. He's a big 'un, but he should fit on a standard 7" printing bed, or in a standard 65mm deep Anycubic Photon or Elegoo Mars FEP tank using the pre-split files for SLA printing. For some reason, they never actually showed the basement dwelling version of Kroagnon from the front during the transmitted episode, so this figure design is a bit of an "Artist's Reconstruction", inferring what I think the completed set piece probably
looked like, based on what little photo evidence is available:
We know the general layout of the triangular controls, and zooming in I was able to identify that there are downward facing triangles on there as well, just very hard to see in the smoke. The layout is basically a flipped version of the upper right garbage disposal controls in the Rezzie's flat, and almost certainly had the same color scheme, where the downward facing ones were a dark purplish-blue and the upwards facing ones were an orangish yellow, and also back-lit to blink on and off. Sadly, there are no clear photos of the keyboard layout, but again, I inferred from a few other sets used elsewhere in the same episode (mainly the guard's monitoring station), and made the left and right versions mirror images of each other.
The middle section of the C-shaped desk area was constructed out of the same circular offset mesh as the cylinder that descends onto the Chief Caretaker and it had two offset rows of dalek-style bumps up at the top (I'm just guessing there might be a similar row at the bottom, as it gives the machine a slightly more face-like appearance.) We also know there was some sort of step up into the circular area where the cylinder descends, because we can see the mobile version of Kroagnon take a step down from it when he completes his transformation. What size and shape it was, we can only guess, but I'm going with a round dais, given that it would be more in keeping with the cylinder that descends from the ceiling.
This figure is designed to work with the button style of LED String lights
, if you want to make the eyes and control panels light up and flash HUNGRY!
There are two version of the triangular computer panels. A solid version for a static model or PLA printing, or one with built in recesses for the mounting of LED string lights and using color tinted UV resin for the triangles, similar to the technique I used for the 8th Doctor TARDIS console.
