@cnomis i understand, you could make a larger version just for bot mode so it can handle the ball joint design. in the show the legs do get pretty long in bot mode. just a thought. thanks

@bobby_80s thx for ur advice. i luv to see it could be a ball joint & transform itself instead of attach. the fact is it cannot work between size & loading, it cannot afford the weight or else the legs will be too thick to fit her. i ve shared on TFW2005 forum, but of coz i still welcome u guys to share your thoughts, let s talk & get evolve!!

Many thx to all of you, the hub & peg issue ve been fixed. just tweak them a little becoz i m afraid of loosen parts happen. hope u guys enjoy.

yea so same problem with the hub and peg. i think you can just make the top part of the peg only a tiny bit bigger than the peg itself. I sanded it down quite a bit and it went through the hole much easier

ok keep in mind i decided not to read the novels people wrote below. so here is my review. and i apologize if i say the same as others. i love the idea and this design is great except for the part where the legs attach with a slide on slot and not a ball joint. i would have much rather preferred a ball joint in the middle connection just like how it connects to the center piece. i don't regret purchasing this item, it still a nice upgrade but just my two cents.

@rapierdragon thx for ur report so detail. Abt the nub & hub issue, the theory u mentioned in Q&A is "not" wrong. but the fact is the model sometimes shaping a bit thicker or thinner, that means things could not come out as accurate as the 3D file. therefore, u need margin or u could say to make it tider than usually needs. It is becoz cut out/off is less difficulty than adding when fix. Sorry for those who need to sand it to make it work. however, this is 3D printing, especially in WSF materials. issue 1 reason the same. thx again & ur photos too.

1st set of pic's coming up shorty. Rather than paint, which would cover/hide the detail line-work (like the little "round" valley-lines where a joint would be, similar to various bumps and lines you'd find on some TF's and high-quality Gundam toys) I used colored permanent markers. (mainly black). Shapeways plastic really absorbs marker-ink well, and while you can't see the detail work in my photos, up-close you can still see it. I may use a little paint to paint-on/paint-in the detail-lines (so a 2nd set of photos may be coming). I've only had two problems. (1) After using a marker, the long legs won't slip into the C-shape part of the inner rotor (I took a pic with one under the inner-rotor, and another leg just sitting on top). The parts were ordered in WSF Polished, and did slide in before I markered them, so I can only guess the material "swelled up" some when it absorbed the marker-ink. A little sanding should fix the problem. (2) The central "nub" will fit the hole for Airachnid's rotor nicely, but I cannot fit it into the "central hub" for the rotors. Even before I markered the parts, it wouldn't fit. The hole needs to be made a bit bigger. I'm going to need to do a fair bit of sanding, (the central hub barely will fit the 5mm nub. I'll do a little diagram for a better design for the nub/central-hub) and attach it here. (2b) From what I've seen in the FAQ on moving parts, if one piece has a diameter of 5mm exact, then its receiving hole should be in the range of 5.3mm to 5.6mm diameter. If the 6-rotor hub is meant to spin freely, then the hole should be even bigger (5.7mm to 6mm). Get rid of the ring-bump that is at one end of the nub and put holes in the nub, and we can use a piece of toothpick or paperclip... once the two parts are together we then put the tiny bit of toothpick or paperclip into the hole to lock the two parts together. >> Alternately, If its meant to hold tightly (for posing Airachnid in spider-mode) then instead you can redesign the two parts to be produced as a single piece.

@rapierdragon ^^ hoho, thx for rapierdragon's short but critical review. u get the point of my design. it will be great if u could post them in my thread at TFW2005: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/943146-tf-prime-rid-airachnid-upgrade-set-shapeways.html thx for ur support.

Great look. Limited movement for posing (only 1 joint in each leg), but you can't really set multiple ball joints while keeping the legs thin enough to double as rotor blades. Legs change from "helicopter rotor blade" to "spider leg" through "parts-forming" (not transforming. Parts-forming means you pull it apart and shift something around). Parts-forming may not be as visually cool, but its a great alternative to having a complex position-shifting metal-wire type bracket which would cost a fortune. I'll upload some pictures once I've painted mine.
