    Please consider cults 3d! You can sell the 3d model alone for printers to print in whatever color they'd like! I can think of a dozen things i'd love to do with those swindle feet connectors!

    Shapeways is actually pretty good, even on their lowest resolution material, so you should be fine with either!

    Yep. The processed versatile plastic option on Shapeways is far more HD than what you're currently using, OP. And the smooth fine detail plastic option (which is the most popular option for the finest detail custom transformers parts - like head sculpts) completely blows it out the water.

    (Also, this is easily the most impressive custom CW Liokaiser project I have ever seen, and if you do end up putting these parts on Shapeways, I can guarantee you they'll sell. Because in the 5 years I've been browsing this site, I have have never seen a CW compatible two bot torso that is as intuitive as yours - and it's not even finished.)

    Update, I was busy with some stuff in life, the Armada Prime project. Took a break from Armada Prime and I'm back on this project again. So currently I've decided to change the way Leozack handles the CW ports, instead it will be a missile pack(similar to Cybertron Scattorshot) on Jallguar that will handle the CW port. It won't require partsforming but it will be some kibble.

    A terrible attempt, filament was terrible, nothing fit, measurements were wrong and everything needs to be redrawn

    ATTEMPT 2!!

    IT WAS A SUCCESS

    Apart from no locking mechanisms for the shoulder(that's why Jinrai had to stand underneath the arm), no proper rotating base for the arm, and a lack of a missile pod cover

    I'd say that this Liokaiser is pretty close to being functional. The few major parts I'm left with would be crotch piece/jeep window +hips, new hands and feet, weapon, and the breastmasters

    Merry Christmas yall!!

    I've got an update on the Missile pod 3.0, as well as a new skirt piece.

    Missile pod shoulders now holds itself up, it's very sturdy and hugs closer to the shoulders. At this point the combiner is close to being functional, but it's still a floppier mess than God Neptune. Oh well, I'm working with very limited options.

    Skirt piece needs a lot of work done for it.

    Nailed down the tolerances for the new parts! This is what the proportions look like.

    The missile caps couldnt be printed because my printer nozzle died before i could print em

    Here's what they look like individually. Liozack is, a normal F14 like Darkwing was.

    What're you gonna do for the legs? That`s a whole lot of weight for two ball joints.

    as explained before, I've yet to design a pair of new hips that will lock onto the skirt piece. The knee and thigh swivel for Swindle is actually very strong and tight enough for the whole combiner.

    Slick. I used to build my own combiners out of a mix of Lego and Bionicle Parts, and the hips and shoulders were always a bitch.

    [QUOTE = "kentan99, post: 18660099, member: 112642"] como se explicó antes, todavía tengo que diseñar un par de caderas nuevas que se sujeten a la falda. La articulación giratoria de rodilla y muslo para Swindle es realmente muy fuerte y lo suficientemente ajustada para todo el combinador. [/ QUOTE]

    my version....help?

    BIG UPDATE: SKIRT PIECE

    Hurray! The final major piece is done! I've finished the skirt piece that carefully locks the hips in place. I've also got Jallguar's headsculpt. You can see how I turned what was presumably the feet of G1 Jallguar into an engine block for CW Jallguar.
    I'd like to add that, this combiner is nowhere near as stable as a regular CW Torso. Very unfortunate. But given the limitations of what I had to achieve, I think this is a great feat.
