Introducing James ..... J° for short

Introducing "James" or J° for short

I have been intrigued for a while with Voice recognition and Voice playback....soooo...

... to help with the reality of it all (Kinesthetic learning) , what could be more fitting than having a "Buddy/Buddyess" to converse with and get a nod or shake of the head or Wink of an eye...

So with Gaels amazing InMoov Head&Neck&EyeMech STL files in hand the Tables were heated....

Printed the Eyes with-out the eyecover supports.... worked ok however next time i would print with them in.

 

The backear supports :- Its the first real test for me Printing with ABS.

My Ultimaker recipe :-

The head shell was printed with ABS at 0.2mm Z axis steps and 15-20% infill.

Nozzle 244°, HeatBed 100° , Space-Fly-Paper Bed (NO GLUE), a brim for first layer... It stuck like a limpet.

 

When a print is underway I like to place Heat insulating boards onto the Heatbed, to retain heat and stop the cooling fan robbing heat off the bed...it also conserves a little power.

 

Quick test fit for tolerances....

 

As I had no "LargeServo" to test the "Axis" I made the "Green Shim" to enable a normal HS-311 servo to be used.... I used a Metal Geared FS-250T 55 Ncm Torque... so we see how it goes.

and Yes it does work with MRL (Propeller) link.

That's the Story so far.....
