/robowaifu/ - DIY Robot Wives

Advancing robotics to a point where anime catgrill meidos in tiny miniskirts are a reality.

Downtime was caused by the hosting service's network going down. Should be OK now.

An issue with the Webring addon was causing Lynxchan to intermittently crash. The issue has been fixed.

Vera stayed by Anon's side, continuing to support him in building new programs, but their primary goal was no longer work or money or fame.

officially got a statement from the company, they expect the prints to be done next week
>>25967 its already been a week, tell them to hurry up btw what if it comes out wrong? can you just send it back
>>25968 it´s a long que, dozens of people with orders before mine. It is however one of the best companies around, they even do quality inspections after prints to make sure there are no errors. I do doubt they would have a return policy since they do quality inspection as mentioned
>>25967 Nice. That will be a big moment I expect Emmy-Pilled. Get stoked! :^)
>>26006 indeed, next up when budgets are back up will be the head, fully printed
and so I finally got an email detailing the print has indeed begun and the countdown to arrival has started
>>26073 >the scaffolding shes being built by bionicles
>>26073 Awesome, Emmy-Pilled! These are going to look amazing once everything's assembled properly. Kind of like some sci-fi render I think. It's so smooth, it makes me think they treated the print in a refractory heating post-process. Thanks for the update, Anon. Cheers. :^)
>>26074 "on the beaches of Nanna Nui, five nandroid guardians have awakened..."
>>26075 no clue how they do it, but they did promise quality checking, so I imagine they clean it up too. Properly ultrasonic
>>26078 Neat! Looking forward to hearing about the delivery to you, Emmy-Pilled.

>get call from printing firm saying fingertips printed with cracks, get a complete reprint for free >sent friday >NO arrival today looks like its gonna be monday before anything happens, feels bad brah
>>26126 cant stand people who crack their fingers, good thing they checked that stuff would drive you mad
>>26127 sometimes you win and sometimes you´re Jonah Hill standing alone in a baseball stadium. Here´s to hoping for next week
>>26126 Well, at least it sounds like they managed to actually solve whatever the manufacturing issue was, so that's good Anon.

the hands arrived finally and are being assembled. Turns out some of the hinges need a good 0,5 mm shaved off for a better fit in their slots. They should be fully assembled and attached by next week.
also seems the clean-up process of >>26073 left some minor traces, spent the day wet-sanding with 180, 240 and some 1000 grit to a nice shine
>>26202 >>26203 looks really professional, how are are you going to attach it to the arm, a hinge or also a ball socket?
>>26202 >>26203 Wow this looks really good, Emmy-Pilled! Exciting to see Emmy's hand components in now. :^) >also seems the clean-up process of >>26073 left some minor traces, spent the day wet-sanding with 180, 240 and some 1000 grit to a nice shine That looks really good too. I'm betting you could further use a polishing wheel to have a sheen on Emmy's parts you could shave from. You know, someone who can create this type thing is probably someone both talented and skilled. You might just ring him up and let him know about the unfinished print parts and that 'it's OK because I polished it up, but can you check things a little closer next time?' Good men like to do good work in my experience, and he'll probably take better care of you next time if you gently point it out to him this time. By such he'll know you're a man who also cares. Looking forward to next week Anon. Cheers. :^) >=== -prose edit

>>26205 despite the new parts their attachment will be the exact same as what proceeded it (13 mm threaded rods)
>>26207 wax tends to leave a bit of a stain when it comes to this epoxy, I normally use liquid polishing compounds with a car waxing sponge. Also already had to fix some minor cracks, learned the hard way you gotta "jerk" the fingers on, not squeeze them along with the ball-joints for the start of the fingers being too small. A lot to learn from this print with the fixing I´m doing
>>26217 >A lot to learn from this print with the fixing I´m doing I bet. I've never worked with this material before. We're all glad you're forging a path for everyone, Emmy-Pilled. Drive on! :^)

>>26218 those plug pins on the far left are too small, so I´ll have to take some wooden beads and cast my own (easy fix, pretty self explanatory), the hinges to the wrists are too thin and gotta be widened (again, just add more epoxy, easy fix) and finally those hinges I learned the very hard way are to be gently "exercised" on with a snippet of vaseline on the joint
>>26220 Great work Anon.

in hindsight perhaps a more flexible plastic should have been chosen for the finger joints. Five snaps in one week trying to carefully file and snugly fit them all. A reprint might be in order

>gently jerk the joint on (slight addition of vaseline with a quetip to easier slide it on) >the (left/right) hinge joint FUCKING SNAPS >MFW
>>26334 Looks gorgeous! >>26335 I use TPU for everything. You can pile driver things made from it and it just bounces back.
Open file (22.48 KB 832x669 3890128901.PNG)
>>26336 these are my options, I aim for ABS since I need a solid just a bit more flexible for the second and third digits. Rest is fine (they sent me the old print as well, meaning I got two entire sets of fingertips. Talk about overkill)
>>26334 These are looking great Emmy-Pilled! >>26334 >>26335 >Five snaps in one week trying to carefully file and snugly fit them all. A reprint might be in order >>the (left/right) hinge joint FUCKING SNAPS Brother don't be too hard on yourself. This is prototyping work. It's always harder/more expensive/time consuming than you imagined it would be. You're on a good road Anon. Stay the course.
>>26339 actually expected it to be easier since it´s a borrowed modification of >>25652. Figured most the chinks would be ironed out. What it really came down to was material
Open file (1.89 MB 540x304 high five.gif)
>>26342 >What it really came down to was material Understood. Well to be honest, material selection is a vital part of successful production in the end, right? I know you'll solve everything Emmy-Pilled. DRIVE ON! :^)
>>26342 doesnt it soften up with heat, you could try heating up the joints with a blowdryer while you assemble it
>>26344 the idea had crossed my mind, but with how unbelievably fucked these snapped pieces that keep snapping the best option is to start fresh. (not to mention as you can see it´s barely 3 digits that´s giving me problems)
Open file (212.03 KB 791x684 083921832901.PNG)
>>26343 my job while waiting will be fixing the wrist joint which is too thin, and the ball-connectors. Also too thin. They will be the most easy fix since I just make a dummy model with a wooden bead and some roundstock, then encasing it in silicone and casting it (gonna use leftover filing dust for strength and a stainless steel screw for a core. For I fear they may need to be extracted at some point, something you DON´T want them to snap at)
>>26347 You'll solve it all Anon, I'm sure. Cheers. :^)
>>26372 quite on the case as noted here >>26220
>>26385 Yup, I hope it all comes together very smoothly for you, Emmy-Pilled.
>>26385 >>26389 You can do it, we believe in you!

PETG have been ordered. Hopefully it´ll go right this time
>>26492 Looking forward to your updates on this, Emmy-Pilled. Cheers.

replacements arrived in time
>>26575 Excellent! Glad to hear of the parts delivery Emmy-Pilled. Emmy's hands are really starting to come together now. Any updates on the further arms/hands assembly progression? BTW, how the's 'firmness' of the finger positioning now? Do her hands stay in pose properly? Looking forward to your next updates, Anon! Cheers. :^)
>>26584 hopefully joining them to arms once the wrists and finger-sockets are figured out. as for the "firmness"... eh, a bit loose, compared to the much tighter epoxy fingers. Might stuff some sewing thread in there to slow their movement a bit. Taking these apart for full overhaul would snap the shit outta them
>>26585 I see, that will be a nice 'rejoin' for Emmy! I know you'll figure out the poseability issues, Emmy-Pilled. Cheers. :^)

>>26600 I´ll try my best, I don´t think it would be too noticeable anyhow. I do have silk gloves in store for her since I´m too conscientious about keeping them 100% clean from all dead skin and sweat handholding would leave
>>26601 >I do have silk gloves in store for her Wonderful. Those will be both helpful and quite elegant as well. Quite fitting for Emmy IMO. :^)
