3D model description

The model is HEAVILY influenced by the ROBOT ASSEMBLY GANTRY on https://miniaturescenery.com. They have a lot of great vehicles and scenery kits for sale.


Please read all notes.

The idea behind this model is that it's modular and uses few or no supports when printing. As well, it can be broken down into major assemblies for easier transport. With few or no supports you save on printing time and plastic.

That being said, this is no great work of art. It's kind of janky in places and some bits will need to be sanded to fit or slide well. The tower panels were supposed to use tiny bits of filament to align them but in the end I think it's easier without them.There isn't a lot of surface detail so a very rusty paint job is highly recommended.

You will need to mirror many parts to get a complete kit. It's going to be on you to sort out how many of what you need in what orientation.

There will files marked with "-Support" that i advise using supports when printing. The rest should print well without them.

Build it how ever you want; tall, short, single tower, gantry, 2 claws, etc. But understand, this thing is pretty big.

I highly recommend having a 2mm or 1/16" drill for the alignment and pivot holes. There are a lot of them and printing them without supports can sometimes make them a little sloppy.

Don't be too surprised if a screwed up file makes it in. Feel free to ask questions in the comments and I'll do my best to add photos/description or fix parts as needed.

UPDATE 5/15/19: Fixed and replaced Gantry-TowerBaseSocket-Supportv2.stl
