Bot Building - General Discussion / Re: Gypsy Reference

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.)

Crow T. Robot / Re: Netflix Crow's Arms & Shoulder Joints

Day 28. The mold castings are still at only 70% or so of what I know they can enlarge to. Something's got to be wrong.

My first plan of attack: Relocate the Hydrospan parts to a spot where I can add an electric fish tank heater. It's recommended the water stay around 70 degrees for proper absorption. Maybe my water's been too cold.



If that's unsuccessful, it looks like I'll have to see if I can devote some of this month's paycheck to buying another round of Hydrospan and trying again. Maybe I messed up the A to B chemical mix. I might also try a suggestion I found online that recommends inserting plastic rods into the backside of the uncured hydrospan as it sits in the mold. Once removed, that should allow channels to form in the denser areas into which water can more easily penetrate later on.

What would be really be helpful would be knowing exactly what size & scale the real Netflix Crow's hands were grown to. ...Would anyone have a chance to hit the Atlanta puppetry museum with a ruler and get me those measurements? LOL ;D  :'(
