  1. Here's some photos showing the arms im still working on sanding, can't wait to be done sanding as my arms and fingers hurt bad The arms are very big fully extended but will fit nicely in place once bent to the correct angles needed for the parts they will be holding. The wood filling is also nearly done and I will be priming the arms soon, had a spot of bad weather so I have invested in a rather large tent to use as a temporary paint shop. Some of the 3D prints need filling also, a couple of my first ones didn't go to plan but I improved as I went along by tweaking the settings, all part of the fun with 3d Printing. I will have x4 of these arm parts, they will be the main parts holding the robot arms to the frame but allowing for movement so I can position them and change position without much trouble.
  2. This is all over the net and not one mention that you stole the whole thing from me, (but did a worse job) i helped you and you and this is how you act. Shame on you! You give modders a bad name.
  3. The moving metal panels on the side of the gantry are also 3D printed, along with all the other parts I have spent 100s of hours planning, designing and working on the 3D renders/ then converting to usable print files, starting with smaller or lower resolution prints to check they look the part and function as intended before printing the higher quality versions at full size. So this is the parts that will attach to the main gantry arms on both sides, so im making double but the design and shape will be different per side. Depending on what the weather is like, I swap between painting, sanding and the printing. So moving back to the base, this needs a lots of finishing like the 3D prints, because it will be painted with high gloss paints (2K) the primer and base need to be PERFECT or all the gaps, bumps and other imperfections would show. Glued, nailed and some screws are used to hold the base together, all them need to be as flat as possible, any that stick out slightly are sanded and filled, then the wood base paint is applied over the MDF sealer. This is the first grey primer of many, in total it will have around 4 full coats that will all be sanded back and left to dry for a week.
  4. Taken a break from modding due to a recent family bereavement, during this time some more parts have arrived so I will start by updating the log with the items and intentions for them. Over the next week I will post some more of the build progress. Thanks to my new sponsors ADATA and EL Wire&Tape for sending me some cool bits for the build. https://elpanelandtape.co.uk/ have provided parts for other projects in the past so very happy they are on-board as I know the quality cant be beaten. EL tape for some logos and case feet, along with some splitters and the power brick to run them all. ADATA provided the SX8200 M.2 card for the main boot device and a SSD.
  5. Been really busy on the PC making new arms and fixing small fitting problems, then printing test after test before finally getting the arms to look and fit just how I wanted. All printed with the Steadytech PLA from Box, went with a medium setting so I could print the 100s of parts needed withing 4 to 6 weeks instead of 4 months or more on the best detail settings. This means I will need to put more work in to the sanding and finishing process but it will workout faster in the end. This is some of the many parts used to make the 4 arms. Here is one of the arms almost fully assembled I plan to add a video of the arms getting build soon.
  6. After a little holiday I'm now back working on the build and thanks to BOX.co.uk, I have the filament I will be using for this build, Black and some clear Steadytech PLA, spend a couple of days setting up and printing some bench prints then started to print the robotic arms on a larger scale, been making some changed to the 3D models as I go along, must have spent over 100hrs on the models now. This arm is MASSIVE! Bit bigger than the 4 proper arms will be. This is the 3rd version on the arms, Will keep doing them until im 100% happy :/ Between waiting for the prints to complete I did some more work on the base, cutting holes for the wires and lighting, The base top will have the Thermaltake RAD RGB panels, on the front I will use LED strips, the controller for them will be in the base and I will run wires to the PC . Some clear plexi for the front. I also made use of the pause in torrential rain to get some painting and sanding done on the base, its already been sealed with MDF sealer, now I have also primed it with brush on wood primer before sanding again and going over with grey primer then sanding again to help show any imperfections on the surface. Because I will be painting most if it gloss black, its very important to have a near perfect finish on the wood surface before the final paint, its hard smelly and dusty work but very rewarding to see when done. More on the paint in the next update.
  7. For high quality audio I will be using the new Sound Blaster AE-9 sound card from Creative Labs
  8. Had a couple of days downtime due to very bad storms causing some flooding in my workshop Back on track now though Finished cutting the main parts and adding the supports so time for a quick look at it with the case on so you get a really good idea of the scale. The sides of the base will be dropped to give the impression that they move down allowing for the big main robotic arms to pop out and glide from front to back on rails. The rails was not on my original design and I haven't planned how they will look yet, still just a VISION for now All the wood will be treated to prevent any damp warping the wood and also help with painting.
  9. Before I cut the main wood I did a rough cardboard version to double check the sizes and overall look. The sizes look about right so time to cut some MDF, first time doing circles with a jigsaw but not as bad as I thought it would be. The main base for the PC will need a lot of parts strengthened to take all the weight of the case and allow for extra cuts needed for panels around the sides and lighting.
  10. Before this weeks build update I will start of with some of the component shots. Thermaltake Toughpower PF1 ARGB will be the beast powering JARVIS. A nice improvement on the new PSU if the buttons on the back that allow you to control the RGB settings without needing to connect to anything. For the fans I will be using Riing Trio's, had them in the past and I love them. The photos shows the Trio (front) and two of the provided fans that come with the case, 140mm and a massive 200mm.
  11. Not counting the water cooling parts, all the Thermaltake bits have arrived so its time to get stuck in More on the parts as I get them unpacked.
  12. Printed 3 sets of arms to test out, they don't look that great just yet because I printed them small and fast, I'm almost at a happy stage with just some small changes to now be made for the final prototype print. When that's done I will do a small video. The gripping arms will come in 3 styles, 4 finger, 3 finger pincers & the final will have some type of tool on the end, still to be decided.
