Y joint with crossaxle
Leewan @Metal_Man Done : http://shpws.me/RFMD The price is a bit high, so you may want to get a set of four : http://shpws.me/RFMC
Leewan @btfab2003 Okay, here's the version with a pin : http://shpws.me/QAez And the version with a balljoint : http://shpws.me/QAew
Leewan @btfab2003 The version with a balljoint kinda already exists, it's the part 90612. A version with a pin could be feasible, but I'm not sure I could model it accurately. Will give it a try in the next few days. (:
Leewan @xXBKARXx But why would I recreate a part that already exists ?

Articulated Hand V3 - full set
Leewan @dapmason You get an estimation of the shipping date on the checkout page. It must be the Mask of Ultimate Power you're looking for. I can't really help with that as I don't make it, but others do. I don't really know which one is the best though.
Leewan @dapmason However, it's true that it's probably too late for Christmas. :/
Leewan @dapmason They are always available. ;) And yeah, they're designed to work with Bionicle / Hero Factory / Star Wars Ultrabuilds elements. If you look at some of the previous comments you'll see them in use.
Leewan @andrew_hull What kind of claw would you want ?
Leewan @andrew_hull I can't make a variant of the fingertip with a hole because the part is too small, but I can make an alternate part with an integrated claw.
Leewan @andrew_hull So you want a part with a clip but that fits the ballcups of the palm ? Honestly, it would be a lot easier if you simply used this part : http://shpws.me/JnGE (single part) / http://shpws.me/Rpfq (set of 4).
Leewan @andrew_hull I'm not sure I get it, you want a palm that works with the fingers on the picture you've linked ?
Leewan @ekh7user You can, if you paint them. Otherwise, it's unfortunately not possible, the parts can't be printed in grey (it's a different material than the usual Versatile Plastic, it's named Professional Plastic, you can read about it here : https://www.shapeways.com/materials/multi-jet-fusion-pa12).
Leewan @ekh7user I don't understand.
Mask Adapter - Round Hole (with ejection feature)
Leewan @Heckfire Not one that I was happy with. The problem here is that because of the axle, the mask is too far away from the head, and you get a big gap between both parts. So I went with something completely different (i.e. a new head), but I'm still not completely satisfied by it. I want to keep the ejection feature, and not simply do a Metru head with a ballcup.
Leewan @swordslinger133 In this case you can get the variant without the ejection feature (http://shpws.me/MkE7).
Leewan @swordslinger133 But it would be linked to the eyes / brain piece, so the ejection feature wouldn't work anymore. It could be done with the non-ejectable variant, though.
Leewan @fb61d4d You may sand the sides if needed, but I prefer it that way, especially compared to the first version that was a bit loose. ;)
Leewan @Chirthorpe No, because of the width of the parts involved.

Articulated hand piece with cross hole
Leewan @D0ggyDj When did you get them ?
Leewan @Lowan Perhaps @BlackBoltJohnson or @voxumo could help you with that.
Leewan @voxumo Alright, thanks. Fixed this.
Leewan @mechking4511 I don't see why it would not be possible, but without the fingers this part alone would be of no use.
Leewan @BlackBoltJohnson Oh, that's great ! Thanks for sharing the photo. (:
Leewan @Boneless_Spaghetti21Oh, I'm sorry to hear that. If the bars are too big and the axle hole too tight, using a small hobby file to remove the extra material should work.
Leewan @mechking4511I think I see. I don't think I can move them closer to the socket, but angling them should be feasible.
Leewan @k_heich The diameter is 10.2mm, why ?
Leewan @aatkaw If you want to paint it, S&F is the best option, check this tutorial : https://www.shapeways.com/tutorials/painting3dprintedsls ;)
Leewan @toaofstuff With the horizontal bars, like the hands of the set 31034.
Mask Adapter - Round Hole (no ejection feature)
Leewan @voxumo No, it's not printable with this material. Maybe it's possible to modify the model to change that, I'll look into it.
Leewan @swordslinger133 It does work with Metru masks. If you don't want the ejection feature, you can just get a Brain Attack head.
Leewan @swordslinger133 I once made a prototype, but never finished it : https://flic.kr/p/L4E78L
Articulated hand piece with cross hole - set of 4
Leewan @voxumo Also, yeah, Shapeways' "new" pricing algorithm makes it much more interesting to group identical parts instead of selling only one of each.
Leewan @voxumo Oh, indeed. This has been fixed. Thank you.

Chestpiece with stud
Leewan @vielvincent28 Oh... in that case, no, I don't think I'd be able to do that. :/
Leewan @vielvincent28 What do you mean by "female" ? With a 4.8mm hole instead of a stud ?

Articulated Mata leg - complete set
Leewan @paijitsean Honestly I do not know as I've never painted parts, but perhaps this tutorial could help you : https://www.shapeways.com/tutorials/painting3dprintedsls
Leewan @paijitsean According to the maker's site (https://polymaker.com/product/polysher/), no : "Compatible Material: PolySmooth, PolyCast". It means this machine can only be used to smoothen parts made with a FDM machine and specific filaments.
Leewan @paijitsean I'd say it depends on how often you play with them. I've had mine for over a year and a half, and they're still in a very good condition, although I almost never touch them. But even if you're planning on using them for a stop-motion movie, for example, I'm pretty confident at the end of the shooting the parts will still hold pretty well.
Leewan @xXBKARXx I don't know. I think I'll eventually do them, but not in the near future.

Articulated Mata body - hips
Leewan @violinist5683 You're welcome. I f you have any issue or question, don't hesitate !
Leewan @violinist5683 They're Lego parts (ref. 22484 and 6628), you can find them on bricklink, or on Lego Customer Service page, or in sets.
Leewan @Ironclaw3000 I don't think there's any risk. @btfab2003 used a sharpie on his articulated hands (http://shpws.me/PjoS), so perhaps he could tell you if there's any "side effect" for the parts. (:
Leewan @Ironclaw3000 If an axle doesn't fit, you can use a small hobby file to make the hole a bit bigger.

Articulated hand - Main Part
Leewan @nmielak Oh, third option : you buy the parts in White Processed Versatile Plastic, and then you dye it yourself in black. It's certainly the cheapest solution.
Leewan @nmielak No. For some reason, Black Processed Versatile Plastic isn't available. You can either order in Black Natural Versatile Plastic and polish the parts yourself, or order in Black Premium Versatile Plastic ( https://www.shapeways.com/product/V4AZAN8SG/articulated-hand-main-part?optionId=69670570 ) and get a much better finish, but it's much more expensive.
Leewan @loermansw Removed them since I updated the whole hands, which now work with a balljoint system : http://shpws.me/PjoS I kept these parts, as well as the thumb attachment, since they can be used with existing Lego parts, and are a less expensive alternative.
Leewan @fbda65d Sure, order it in white and paint it the colour you want when you receive it.

Leewan @nmielak My mistake. These products are private, only I can see the product pages for the armours. They're not available to the public because they have several flaws that I haven't fixed yet. I'll just remove the links for now.

Articulated Mata body - upper torso
Leewan @Ironclaw3000 Oh so the axle for the gear function remains straight despite the Technic #2 connector not going all the way down ? It's a good news. At first I feared you were talking about the waist articulation, and you were saying the wires that hold the disks didn't bend, which would be a very bad news.
Leewan @Ironclaw3000 What do you mean by "nothing bends" ? The axles holes being too tight or too loose (on the upper torso or the hips) is due to printing orientation and tolerances, so unfortunately, there's not much I can do about that. Thanks for your feedback, though !

Leewan @jordandcrawford I don't know how strong High Definition Acrylate is, I'm afraid parts made of this material would break.

Leewan @bsimp14 Nope, your best option here would be to get a plain white part and paint it afterwards.
