Tow Walker

3D model description


This is my first robot/mecha, always wanted to make one so here's my first attempt.

I call it 'Tow Walker' as it's some sort of tow-truck in mecha version. (thanks @AlkeshOne for the name ;)

UPDATE 7/14/2017: replaced the chain file with a new one (chain-70.stl) that fits better in small beds
UPDATE 5/14/2017: replaced 2 files (bottom_plate_rep.stl and pilot_rep.stl. Old versions may fail in some slicers)

Also designed a female pilot and a figure of the woman going up on a stairs. This figure is include with Meshmixer supports and with no supports (if you prefer use your own supports.)

All the assembling pieces are designed with 0.15-0.2 mms tolerance to avoid sanding.

The chain can be printed in place, once printed, cut the last link and insert carefully the hook.

The figure is 21cms tall.

Hope you like it.
Have fun!!

3D printing settings


ANET E10 + Creality CR-10

The chain may be a bit tricky to print, it's crucial a good bed adhesion (i used duct tape over the glass bed) and slow print (i changed to 60% feed rate during the print).
