3D model description

This is the 7th in a series of folding robots to prepare for 4D printing. It was inspired by a robot called "Bender" that appeared in the animation "Futurama (1999-2013)".
The body of the robot is narrowed downward, so a new proportion is applied.

This is the kind of "3D Fan art". Many of my imaginations have been added. It is difficult to see the original shape before folding it.

This robot's arms and legs are elongated and structurally reinforced to prevent them from falling due to the vibration of the 3D printer during printing. Nevertheless, please understand that the length of the legs is slightly shortened because the legs are so large that they are likely to fall during the print.
It is very difficult to create hand-drawn animated characters in 3D. So, to express the feeling, I interpreted it subjectively and designed it.
The chest has a door that can be opened and closed so that you can put various things in it.

Designed for easy folding of complex structures, this product has been designed to meet the needs of popular 4D printing in the future.
It will revolutionize 3D printing as a totally new structure robot that does not need to be supported nor assembled, just fold.
This design does not require assembly, but the head, arms, and legs can rotate at various angles, so you can play with a variety of things.
Especially, the arm has a double structure so that it can rotate in two directions, so you can take many poses. In addition, the legs are made to protrude to the front and back, and the angle is precisely adjusted so that it does not fall over.
The folded part is made concave so that anyone can fold it easily.
