Since I am still waiting for the yellow spray can I couldn't finish the legs and forearms... But I couldn't help assembling it together for a temporary display. There are detailling bits missing but I think it looks pretty cute already!

Cute it is.

How do the parts fit together (especially on the joint) ? As from what I understand, the 3D printing itself has inaccuracies.

I use SLS printers (through Shapeways) and from experience I got not more than 0.2mm errors which are easily rectified by a quick sanding or priming. For instance, I made pre-drilled holes of 1mm diameter for the screws on the model and all of them (30+) were perfectly printed.


I guess you will seat a 1/60 Hayate figure from the DX when it comes out!

If I can get one... I didn't made it during the pre-orders.

Unfortunately for your increasing collection, this one is 1:60...

Yep and at the same place as the others, or you can leave me a PM to discuss it!

Yellow can came and I finished the yellow areas. I also added a few "aluminum" details.

Now, it's play time until everything dries completely so I can color the darker details other the light layer safely.

Thank you guys!

Found an old rubber ear bud lying, I used it to make the legs stiffer. Now the Workroid has a more "toy feel"... This works great!

I also made the logo sticker and applied it:

I must say thank to all the great comments and encouragement posts.

As the workroid is now considered done, I will try to make a photoshoot soon and I will update the 1st page with all the most important details of the built.

By the way, how do you create the sketchup 3D file ?

Do you use the 3-view drawing as reference ?

3-view is a must: it can prevent you to go off the dimensions or guide you to the perfect curves. Unfortunately there is no schematics for the for the Workroid so I had to make one from scratch.

I just noticed that the Workroid has the double antennae inherited from the Aliens Power Loader. These seem to be a requirement on these types of machines...

(In Aliens, the antennae were actually cables used to suspend the full size prop from the soundstage ceiling)

Too bad that the Workroid wasn't featured more in the TV show... Perhaps we will see more in the movie (if it ever comes)

I have been lazy lately so the quality of the shots are very low due to poor lightning conditions and the phone camera...

I have also updated 1st post accordingly.

The photos are beautiful - Spam away! Plus, it's your thread and your creation. I think you've earned the right to post as many shots as you want.

You'll hear no complaints from me, that's for sure!

I think the purpose of the thread is mostly photos. It looks great! If this was a feasable project, your work would be used to help sell it to actual buyers. - MT

And since it's the only model of its kind, and likely the only we will see for a long time, keep the photos and diorama displays comin'.
