Bot Building - General Discussion / Re: Gypsy Reference

If there's enough interest and support for a scan, that would be cool. I live just South of Houston, TX.

I'll get my Gypsy set up for her reference photo shoot in the next couple of days.

Reference photos would be grand.  I can model it up.

If we, as a community, want a scan...we could always "pass the hat"

what part of the world are you in?

The bad news is I just called the 3D scanning company I mentioned, and their rate for scanning an object like this is prohibitive.

The good news is, I DO have a Gypsy that I will take apart and set up for reference pictures for you. I will also continue to look for a way to get the parts scanned locally that won't cost a month's rent.

Well, I completely forgot about this. xD And after I said I hadn't! Got busy with the Winter holidays and all that.

I have a convention in two weeks that I'm making a mad dash to prepare for. After that, I'll get back on looking into scanning Gypsy!

Any movement on scanning the seat?  I've been really, really, really eager to build myself a Gypsy.

Ready to throw some money at someone.

Cheers,

Ted.

Somehow we missed an Ardy breakdown here.  We have two distinct versions one for each season.
S1 Ardy:

No idea on parts, if I had to guess it is a plastic hazmat suit with some of the material off the back over a hat or helmet to give the helmet its shape.

S2 Ardy:

S2 Ardy's helmet is a Sandblasting helmet that is rebranded alot:

And what looks like a generic Beekeeping suit:

Harness is likely a Dickies Work Gear 57077 in black:

For the love of god. If someone has a seat, scan it and post the scan on thingiverse. You could 3d-print it in sections if you had to, join the sections, paint it, and be done. No it's not the simplest project, but it's extremely doable and there's no other source. And scanning doesn't sacrifice an original seat! For that matter, ALL the parts of ALL the bots should be scanned and available as 3D print files by now.

Still wanting/needing one.
Someone has to do this at some point.
The OP mentioned them being “economical”. Hell, I’d be happy with nearly affordable at this point.
I’m really regretting unknowingly letting my first Gypsy get tossed by someone who “helped” me move back about 18 years ago. (Though you take what help you can get when you’re in a wheelchair.)
