Community Question

I had purchase a EZ-B developer kit about 1 year ago. I was able to build some basic robots and had a blast. I wanted to build something more solid, so my wife gave me 3D printer for fathers day. I have downloaded the STL for JD Humanoid and I have started to print some of the parts. I have a Da Vinci 3D a printer and am wondering how many cartridges it will take to print the hold robot?

I am using the XYZprinting PLA Filament Cartridge, 1.75 mm Diameter, 600g, Nature to print.

Thank for your reply, I was able to finally get working. (I still think that there is something off with my printer and there is a weird burn on the bed. I reached out to amazon, and they are sending me a replacement. )

Check out the image of my 1st prints. I also think that my support settings are not right, I ended up throwing away allot of support in one piece was almost as much as the actual piece.


YAY!

Here are my settings for support, and I am using PLA do they look right?

That looks really good! There will be a lot of support material sometimes.

Last question, now that I am printing all the parts and cleaning them up. Where can I purchase all the screws that I would need to hold everything together?

I have already purchase the DIY kit, so I have servos, camera and processor, and I am going to order the battery and charger today.

On the servo parts you reuse the servo screws. For the Jd back I used the long extra servo screws that came in a dev kit in the little bags. I might have used the same for the head or I might have stole them from an EZb base from the dev kit.
