Kreon Upgrade Kit Adds Limb Extensions for More Articulation Then Meets the Eye
Wu Long Ti - 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)

for those interested, I've setup an account on Sculpteo as well as on shapeways. The prices tend to be a little higher, but from what I gather, you get a faster turn-around time and there are more color options. All of the colors are available in polished as well, where as on shapeways only th... read more

Maybe you have a different expectation of what "explode" means than what Sketchup thinks it means. In SU it's basically just "ungroup", so if you're looking for more than that then maybe it's called something else. If you click on your model and the whole thing is... read more

K, I have the latest free Sketchup and it will not allow me to 'explode' parts.

K, I'll have to look at "exploding" my parts. I worked on an armor set for ROTF/DOTM Optimus Prime last night and couldn't find how to stitch multiple pieces together. In blender I can join vertices but in Sketchup haven't been able to manipulate vertices yet. Sketchup is n... read more

You can chop up or merge objects/groups/components with the free version, you just have to "explode" them first. I think that the only difference between the free and the pro versions have to do with interactions with some architecture program and "corporate licensing".

I'm using Sketchup free, that lip idea would have been good, I already ordered my prototype, so we'll see how it goes

That's what I see most heads for articulated papercraft gundams do and it works well enough. If you give a slight lip to your socket to keep the ball from falling right back out if the figure falls over then that might meet the requirements of having a ball socket. What program are you using?

Yeah, after much trial and error I finally got a working sphere... however since I did not purchase the full version of the program I cannot cut, or merge objects, so my efforts ended up being very pointless.... still gonna get my Tailgate head proto, he'll have an empty peg hole at the base of... read more
