    I put the files up on cults. I am waiting to assemble the final version until I can make an assembly video. Download free STL file Transformer IDW Whirl • 3D printer model ・ Cults

    It looks so good in color. I giggled a little while test fitting some of the parts.
    Any part that says (x2 w-mirror) is a part that you will need two of, one mirrored in the slicer to be for the opposite side.
    Thanks again for all the feedback, I just wanted to get it up somewhere as soon as possible.

    Ah Geez how embarrassing! I updated the thigh parts on the cult site. It looks like 6 people have downloaded it and I am assuming that they are from this site.
    If so the parts will work, there are just a few thin areas that I had changed to get rid of. I only realized it because I printed the thin spot ones and knew that I had fixed it! lol
    Sorry about that.
    The updated parts are the thigh-left and thigh-right.

    Looks great. I'm a little tempted to download and print it even though he's not a character I know just cuz the design looks so good.

    Hey, @myloschz did you see my question the other day? How well does t4 resin take paint? I know nylon has a hard time with paint sometimes but a resin like this is would be nylon-like so I don't know if it would share all of nylon's properties.

    Hey! I have not had a chance to try painting it yet. I think that a primer for plastics would work to get things started if paint did not stick.
    It doesnt have a nylon feel whenst post cured, Honestly it feels very much like an abs.

    Just wanted to jump up and bump up! Just kidding. I wanted to let everyone know that I don't care what anyone does with the files.
    I do not intend on ever trying to make money from it to compensate my time, nor do I want to print copies to sell.
    That being said, I would be ok with someone printing and selling copies to those without a printer.

    Oh and, I can't believe that I forgot to print his Feet! hahahah.
    I will still be trying to do an assembly and transformation video this weekend.

    @Megawillbot Awesome! Looking good!

    A few updated pics on the first page. Also uploaded a zip file with updated parts to cults for anyone that has already done the download. Details on first page. Done for now!

    It is not really in scale with anything unfortunately. The robot seems about MP or large Voyager/small leader scale.

    I put up some quick assembly pics on the first page. Still trying to gat a transformation video done.

    Big shout to Megawillbot for taking time to optimize the parts for FDM printing.
    I will be adding them to the cults page in a zip file unless MegaW's wants them somewhere else.

    I placed an order for a bunch of M2 screws and M1.5 pins. Hopefully I will be able to get a guide for them as well. Right now I am not really sure of the different lengths needed.
