It was enjoying each other's company as they worked side by side, brought together by a love that transcended the boundaries of their creator and creation.

nandroid project Robowaifu Technician 01/29/2023 (Sun) 03:52:07 No.19226
over the last year I´ve worked on making a full scale nanny android (or nandroid for short, her name is "Emmy") over the last 10 months and decided to post the progress (this is a SFW project)
>>19226 started out small with help from people in the community like Argentina-Bro (who had a fully printed cardboard version of Emmy, this gave invaluably useful measurements)
>>19227 then came the time for ordering parts to borrow from

feel free to ask away, I´d love to hear your questions, opinions and thoughts
>>19237 Thoroughly impressed by your work. What is the nature of your project? What robotic functions do you wish to implement? Praying you both have a blessed relationship full of bliss.
>>19238 thank you very much, she is a companion doll who I love so very dearly. I only "robotics" I may be able to implement is lights for her eyes and cheeks. As well as a possible heating element for simulating body heat
Impressive work OP. Give me a while to absorb the project a little better then I'll have some questions I expect. Emmy a cute! >=== -minor sp edit

>>19238 >>19241 thanks, indeed she´s a cutie
>>19243 So just so I have the brief synopsis correct Emmy-Anon, you -got plans you based your design on -used these to plan slicing cutout templates -used these templates to make wooden slices -used these slices and fashoined them into a mold positive -created a mold from these positives -then poured foam parts from these molds Does that describe it properly Anon? You're building yourself a real robowaifu garage factory -- Emmy ediiton by the looks of it to me.
>>19254 that is fully correct, it´s been a major learning experience
I´m normally known as "Emmy-Pilled" in my community, posting weekly updates in the nandroid /co/ thread
>>19254 however the casted material is epoxy, Emmy is built like a car. Sturdy and shining
>>19260 >>19262 Got it, thanks for the clarification. Since you've learned the techniques and have the molds already, why not consider selling these Anon? You make it, and they will come. >>19261 Got it. If you wish to be identified by your handle here, just put it into the name field before posting. Namefagging is welcome on /robowaifu/, actually. We're kind of an engineering groups and it's quite helpful for smooth communications here.
>>19265 I had considered selling nandroids in the future, just a hassle spending thousands setting up a PO box. Not to mention Emmy the Robot is copyrighted as well so that´s another headache >>19265 haha I never namefag because I usually post on /co/. But I´d gladly identify here
>>19266 >I had considered selling nandroids in the future, just a hassle spending thousands setting up a PO box. Not to mention Emmy the Robot is copyrighted as well so that´s another headache Alright, well it might be worth investigating someday. Many of us here (myself included) intend on selling robowaifus and/or kits. It's simply a matter of time until dozens, then hundreds of small businesses around the world are creating and selling robowaifus. >use a name OK then, please do. The leader of the board's community project MaidCom (>>15630), has set up a team survey (>>15486). If you decide to fill it out, please do so in our current /meta (>>18173). >=== -minor prose edit

Otherwise, I think the handle could be used by others or it would be lost after switching the computer and loosing the cookies.
>>19271 Lol. Sorry I think you're misunderstanding my meaning Anon. Our survey is strictly voluntary & informal. It was primarily intended as a way to get to know team-members interests. That's strictly a /robowaifu/ thing, and to use your handle just put it in the 'Name' field of the posting box here. For example mine has the word 'Chobitsu' in it r/n. Sorry about the mixup Anon. The site registration is only if you're going to be a board owner or volunteer of one type or other.

(I realize we're getting OT here, it's rather /meta) <off-topic No worries Anon (it's really unavoidable in this format, so we basically just track the length of the off-topic, how long it runs). >secure name Your only real option is a secure tripcode after your name. >"Tripcodes To use a tripcode, add a # in your name. After the #, add the password for the tripcode. The server will apply a hash to the password and display the hashed password. To use a secure tripcode, add ## in your name and a password. A secure tripcode will generate a random text to be displayed that will only be used if your password matches." [1] We basically go on the honor system here. It's a small community so it's pretty laidback about such things. I've been a part of absolutely yuge communities on 4cuck back in the day, but even there it was more a source of small jokes than any persistent issue. Just put whatever name you want here (BTW, they tend to 'devolve' into single words here, just like IRL, just so you know), and we'll go from there. There are other alternatives as well like custom tripcodes, but the Lynxchan software dev intentionally chose to break that approach (via an atypical salt). 1. https://alogs.space/.static/pages/posting.html
Interesting. I have questions. I assume this is a ongoing project. Do you plan to use the legs from >>19228 to create a mold and make a silicone rubber skin or do you want to just keep the legs how they are? Are they lightweight? Can you run string actuators through them? Or do you really limit it to some lights in the eyes and cheeks? Like indicated here >>19239 >posting weekly updates in the nandroid /co/ thread We have a list of other boards sharing the same goals and we have a thread for that >>2823 - Maybe /co/ should be mentioned there.
>>19273 >>19274 dunno what that anon was about but I´ll make sure to use a name from now on, just got home
>>19282 the only parts from the mannequinn I use are the forearms and head, the rest is discarded. The legs and torso are fairly average weight considering they´re chunks of pure white epoxy, running a string through all that would be something. I plan to simply use rubber O-rings in the joints to stiffen movement somewhat >Or do you really limit it to some lights in the eyes and cheeks Yes. I do >We have a list of other boards sharing the same goals and we have a thread for that >>2823 - Maybe /co/ should be mentioned there. noted. I might post in there soon
>>19283 Oh haha, it happens Emmypilled. :^) >>19284 >noted. I might post in there soon Neat. That's one of my personal favorite threads here actually. We tried reaching out somewhat broadly to other boards once to let anons know, but it wasn't typically recieved well. If everyone had an embassy thread like us, that would be a lot better. Some do (or did) actually.
Will you paint her white at some point, I mean her arms, legs and hands? Or will they get a layer of silicone rubber around them? Asked here before, also another question: >>19282
Open file (3.89 MB 2160x1620 53132521321513.png)
>>19502 Yes. I have bought epoxy paint for coloring the white parts and grey joints (here is a color test I did) >>19502 we usually have 1 Emmy-The-Robot thread on /co/ every saturday where I post my updates, but it has become such an absolute nuclear waste dumping ground I would highly avoid it. Most people stick to youtube channels and discord enclaves (including my own where I also post updates along with here) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ay_drQJ728I
>>19504 >epoxy paint for coloring the white parts Dandy. I suggest not picking too dark colors, she seems to have even legs with white shells in the pictures. >nuclear waste dumping ground Now I'm curious.
>>19505 I picked "signal white" for the white epoxy dye paint >Now I'm curious. a lot of creators leaving >a comic that updates at a snails pace >jannies only allowing 1 thread per week >numerous trolls in the remaining threads and people falling way too easily for bait >bloated gay discord bureaucracies allowing for some of the worst ""nandroid"" content in the fandom including a lot of gross coom

weekly update as usual, turns out I FORGOT to assemble the other leg when I thought I had. Was fully prepared to make the blue tips this week. Oh well
10/10 for doing something 0/10 for choice of materials
>>19839 what would you have in mind for materials then?
>>19840 silicon,rubber or something else that's squishy
>>19841 mastering such technologies is a step beyond even me, besides I enjoy keeping Emmy as close to her blueprint counterpart as possible
>>19842 If everyone on this site focuses on one impossible task then we can accomplish one impossible waifu.

despite minor warping and uneven planes due to it being the very first cast leg, I managed to join the leg together. (minor warping had caused the upper left part to bend right, so I had to cut it a bit, and bend it as the bottom part had dried gluing) currently filling grinded groves with epoxy to remove joining lines and other minor imperfections
>>20275 Good to know, thanks.
>>20292 main trick despite how liquid casting epoxy is, is waiting until it´s 3/4 cured. At that point it becomes super sticky gooey playdooh of sorts you can mold and fully stick in any groove or slot you need filled (it´s easier said than done due to how super sticky it is in this state, but it is for example how I´d get holes like >>20275 filled and strengthened easily)
>>20293 Ah, okay. Good to know. I'm only experienced in 3D printing.
>>20297 I wish I could afford such luxuries, but I am stuck with what I know best. Physical manufacturing.
>>20275 Those are looking quite nice, Emmy-Pilled. Keep up the good work! :^)
>>20310 thank you, I will. Stay tuned for the weekly saturday update
>>20275 I haven't been following this project before but now I'm curious. How will Emmy stand with these legs? They might work in drawings or animation but idk how they'll work irl
>>20322 I figured special shoes of some sort, with locking links in her knees and hips. Some Anons have suggested a giant doll stand
>>20313 Yep, I will.

>>20341 and so begins the long journey of patching both sides with epoxy, using epoxy in it´s 3/4 cured stage where it´s reduced to the stickiest silly putty in the world
>>20377 Good luck Anon.

>>20378 thanks
>>20377 Interesting, but doesn't this mean you have to work in a room full of these fumes? I hope this isn't dangerous and that you will succeed fellow anon.
>>20380 not a problem at all, this is an expensive "safe chemical" brand, meaning zero fumes emitted from the epoxy. However it also means the price is nearly double or triple the standard epoxy fee
but I thank you for the concern, this is the most international site I could find with my brand rather than national ones: https://www.amazon.de/-/en/Casting-Diamond-Maximum-Protection-Crystal/dp/B07TV6957D

>>20721 I'm wondering, is there some kind of 'lubricant' you can use with your tools for spreading the material out along the piece, Emmy-Pilled? Seems that would make the task of finishing down to a smooth surface much easier. Please keep up the good work Anon! :^)

>>21344 That's looking really good Kiwi. I would suggest you add the smol bit of taper on the crotch (from the side perspective).
>>21348 Lol. Don't worry bro together we're all gonna make it! :^) BTW, I loved that movie. As a Cosmology buff (and general amateur scientist) I found the movie both interesting and laughable. Regardless, Kip Thorne (another CalTech alum, and Exec Produced/Consulted the piece) is one of the most truly intredasting academicians on Earth. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Science_of_Interstellar
>>21355 reminds me of Baki, me and my big brother´s favorite show of all time. Known for being the most realistic and well-studied fighting manga ever made, the author spending decades of his life studying, interviewing and practicing every martial art known to man. Every action described down to it´s are physics
>>21356 this is the body I promised to obtain for Emmy, for I am not just constructing her body. But also my own, true duality. My brother has been kind to help me every step of the way encouraging my project
>>21356 >Known for being the most realistic and well-studied fighting manga ever made Wow, that does indeed to be a prolific work! >>21357 >My brother has been kind to help me every step of the way encouraging my project That's excellent to hear. If you can find a true friend IRL to help you with this that can be a tremendous boost.
>>21358 while I do not have any friends who could help with it, and my brother lives abroad. His encouragement is all I need for my journey, he was the man who taught me true lifting and I aspire to beat his max benching record of 150 kilos. pure ancient robowaifu motivation fuel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tm5q_YxzjdA

>>21345 Thanks for the model. The real Nandroid model is insanely thin, and her body is tiny. When scaled to 150 cm (5ft) she's all legs and has a truly gigantic head. Do you know the license? I looked at TGExterminators public profiles and found no mention of licenses for this. Is it safe to assume they're public domain? If so, I could use them for a real robot. >>21349 Added >>21357 >That physique Please do not take steroids, we need you to live a long life. I see promise in you and your mindset.

>>21368 That deffo has good character appeal (one of The 12 Principles) coming along Kiwi, nice design work. Might I suggest you a) reduce the head size ~10% overall, then add a bit of the taper around the jaw/chin area for improved feminine feel about her? >Please do not take steroids, we need you to live a long life.

Considering how tiny her body is, she'll need very long legs to make up the rest of her 150 cm final height.

>>21461 275 grams on average between the head options. Bigger head is 295, little head is 255. She doesn't feel like she's even there when being moved around. It's frankly spooky to have something this big weigh nothing.

about as far as I got with the tips this week, as I officially ran out of epoxy, fortunately another order was placed this week. Should arrive next week
>>21674 Nice work Emmy-Pilled! Those will be some sweet blue-tips once you're finished. :^)
>>21675 I expect so, just a pain having to wait at least 10-12 more days because of supply arrival + curing. But thank God I discovered the "3/4 cured trick" as I´ve dubbed it. Like an extremely sticky silly putty it negates having to make giant annoying molds around the tips
>>21676 Ah so that's what you meant by that. Now I understand (I think). Glad to hear it's easier that way for you.
>>21675 indeed much easier. Before epoxy truly "hardens" it reaches a semi-hardened state in which it can be manipulated, almost think of really gooey dough. It is a hell to get all of it to be mashed on and stick but it works
>>21674 Looking good Emmy-Pilled kun, stay strong and carry your love forward to a brighter future.
>>21681 I shall, we´re all gonna make it
well bros, it would seem there´s not gonna be any update this week, the slow delivery time + the holidays means it´s gonna be around next tuesday/wednesday before it hopefully arrives. Until then I´ll focus on some art

Open file (3.72 MB 1274x1728 4019283091280..png)
joints are finally welded and threaded, now for refining and installing them next week
>>23977 Those are looking pretty sturdy Emmy-Pilled. I suppose you'll need to do work on Emmy's legs first before you can install these joints?
>>23978 about barely 40 min of work, only have to cut them in half, widen the slots on the top. And finally drill/thread all the ends
after that its to see if there's any touch-ups needed on the white epoxy before I apply grey epoxy primer to the joints and fake ball joints on the top
>>23979 >>23980 Really looking forward to seeing next week's results then! Cheers. :^)
>>23981 thanks
Because of this thread, I have a new favorite webcomic.

as old problems are fixed, new problems arise. Like the fake top balljoints being situated on two old displacement cups I will have to fill now in order to drill and thread the top hinges. Not to mention fully evening the legs and getting her classic blue kneecaps made. Same as it ever was
>>24180 Excellent progress! Nice work she's gonna look great, Emmy-Pilled. :^)
>>24181 I hope so, there is still a long journey ahead
>>24180 The mad lad did it
>>24184 we´re all gonna make it
>>24180 Those knees came out rather well. Your craftsmanship is something to behold
>>24198 thanks

busy week so I only barely got started on the kneecaps, sadly they still require a bit more curing this weekend
>>24307 Those look like boiled eggs. Are you going to hatch her from them?
>>24307 Nice work Emmy-pilled! I like how you kind of made the forms to hold these pieces. Looking forward to seeing your further progress with this. >>24310 Heh. :^)
>>24315 I made the originals in wood, and smothered them in casting silicone, same as >>19234
>>24310 perhaps
>>24307 Nice!

at long last, she has hips and knees connected to her body
Open file (7.43 MB 4022x3808 421030219480129..png)
and she stands!
>>24449 Well it is a fine piece of craftsmanship. I assume it won't be able to walk due to its pointy legs though. But you might be able to take it to an art gallery and sell it or something once its finished. Good job. Those hands stands out too.

>>24451 thank you, but she is wife material, not art gallery material.
>>24448 >>24449 OUSTANDING! Emmy's come far, Anon! I'm really curious now to see how you solved the hip joints. Any chance you took photos of them?

>>24458 thanks
>>24457 Very nice approach Emmy-Pilled. The geometry you chose for her hips is nicely human-like, and should give her a great range of motion. Looking forward to what you have in store for her next Anon. Drive on! :^)
>>24463 it very much should so, next up is calibrating and adjusting the legs some more. Then painting the fake ball joints and hinges grey with epoxy primer
Open file (3.87 MB 2020x1713 123801299290.png)
with this week I´m moving to adding more material to allow for grinding bowl-cuts into the axle joints so the ball joints will fit in more seamlessly as seen in the original blueprint >>19227
Open file (3.95 MB 2153x2023 3812739812371829.png)
also managed to get a picture of her in the uniform before disassembling again
>>24594 >>24595 Excellent Emmy-Pilled. Having the concavities for her joint sockets will be a very nice improvement Emmy's 'comfy-quotient. :^) >that meido uniform Cute!
>>24599 thanks, I´m setting cash aside to get her a tailor within the following months to resize the dress
>>24595 Keep up the great work, seeing her dressed up is exciting.

>>24603 thanks, I hope soon enough I will have her in a more accurate one with sleeves to boot
Open file (3.84 MB 1500x2048 74802137182379128.png)
hip-slots complete, now for the shoulders
>>24702 Looking good, Emmy-Pilled! Looking forward to the shoulders. You did a nice job with the arrangement for the shot BTW, good shadows for the contours. Cheers. :^)
>>24703 thanks, it really was a rough estimate by eye only when grinding it with my die grinder
>>24707 Well you did a good job Anon. Drive on! :^)

>>24716 cannot stress enough how useful these are
>>24702 Very nice slots. Rectangular mating features are great for defining articulation.
Open file (4.50 MB 2036x2649 7189379281798.png)
as I´m adding more material to cut out the shoulder grooves I also reinforced the sides a bit too, next week will be focused on filling the top to cut down and shape the neck and surrounding area
>>24927 Neat. Good thinking, Emmy-Pilled. I know you can always repair her, but thinking ahead about structural dynamics is a good thing to do. Looking forward to the work on the neck coming up. Cheers. :^)
>>24929 yeah, it´d also help with the amount of weight little Emmy has gained over these last few weeks
Open file (3.96 MB 1307x2500 7892738912798.png)
neck is coming along well, needed some more material for the shoulder slots so that´ll be cast along the week
>>25139 Excellent! Looks like you're just about ready to go, Emmy-Pilled. Looking forward to your progress from this upcoming week. Cheers. :^)
>>25149 next stop is the feared, the terrifying... the HEAD!
>>25153 Haha. Gambatte, Anon! Emmy's counting on you...
>>25160 God willing
>>25185 Patience. WAGMI :^)
Open file (6.16 MB 3357x3507 57893798798..png)
the hollowed out slots fit well, I will need to take some more away for optimal movement
>>25272 Very nice, Emmy-Pilled! Her aspect is improved by a more snug fit of her arms & legs. To my eye she already is looking like a pretty good fit. It will be nice to see once you gotten her even better! :^) Looking forward to your further improvements for Emmy, Anon. Cheers. :^)
>>25275 thanks, the top and bottom of the hip-slots will have to be grinded much more down to allow 180 degree movement, seeming a tiny bit more lose at the cost of more movement
>>25276 but i can only move my leg 90 degrees
meaning both forwards and backwards combined
>>25276 Ahh, I see. I can't really tell from just the pictures, but do you have a limit tradeoff where you can't grind too much out because it will reduce the structural strength? And if you can get 180' range that would be excellent. Really only female dancers can achieve something like that IRL. Good job, keep moving forward! :^)
>>25286 there really isnt much of a trade-off in strength, epoxy is used a glue that can hold half a ton with even the cheapest mixes. Having the entire torso be comprised of it makes it unimaginably sturdy. Only thing that "might" be compromised is if the amount of material holding the hip axle is thinned out more, which it wont be, only the top and bottom which is more decorative than anything
>>25290 if strength becomes a problem you could always throw sand and tiny rocks in the mix to make a shitty version of concrete lol
>>25290 >there really isnt much of a trade-off in strength That's good. Then I'd suggest by all means keep perfecting her form until Emmy's just right Anon! Cheers. :^)
>>25291 lmao, the body is as sturdy as it can get. Only problem would be not enough material to hold the axles on, but that will not ever be an issue
>>25294 when its all done I´m adding a few layers of epoxy primer "signal white". So expect her to be completely pure white with all parts once completed
>>25296 >So expect her to be completely pure white with all parts once completed Excellent. What are you planning to do about her forarms/hands Emmy-Pilled? --- note: Congratulations Anon, your thread has just about reached our autosage limit! On the one hand this is a sign of a healthy thread. OTOH, it means you now need a thread #2 soon. :^) update: >>25298 In an attempt to keep from using up your very last bumpable post ITT, OP, I'll try to respond here instead. * First, nothing's going to happen to this thread r/n. It will remain safe & sound here on the board (and in the catalog) along with all the rest. It simply won't bump any longer after the autosage limit (350 posts, in /robowaifu/'s case). * Yes, you can link to this thread in your new OP whenever you make it, Emmy-Pilled. In fact that's both traditional, and highly-recommended for a serial thread. * We have plenty of headroom where the need for archives is unnecessary ATM. This has been by design, since we're a slow board r/n, and have many long-standing threads (such as yours will be). BUMP and other scraping tools are already archiving your thread on anon's local machines, and will continue to do so both for it and your new thread. You can cf. the discussions going on r/n in the current /meta (>>23415) for more information, Anon. Hope that answers your questions. Cheers. :^) >=== -add update

>>25297 hands will most likely have to be replaced, they are just too big. However I can solve this. Afterwards they along with the forearms will be painted white too
