Third Party
Kreon Upgrade Kit Adds Limb Extensions for More Articulation Then Meets the Eye

By Wu Long Ti on Monday, November 12, 2012



These arrived on my birthday and they fit awesome! I need to make a few minor tweaks to the knee connectors (shave off one of the pegs) and the hands.

The hands had the column for the axle filled in with either support or WST material and I ended up "drilling" them out using the sharpened end of a straight paper clip. it was terrifying. I then cut pieces of paper clip to length and used as axles for the finger joints.

It worked, but I can't expect anybody that goes for this kit to do the same so I'm going to have to work out another solution. I might try a half ball/recess friction connection but I worry that it will keep popping out.

Other than that, this is working exactly how I wanted :D

For those interested so far: Kreon upgrade kit by wulongti on Shapeways

Joints are articulated enough for a 3 point landing (the Ironman pose)
