    Hello,
    I open this topic to share the files of my Chappie Head Replica, 1:1 scaled props. All the .STL files linked are succesfully printed with basic Pusa i3 3D printer, with 0,2mm layer and 30% infill.
    I use pictures of prototypes and Weta auction's, and measures kindly taken by Caxack on his original props acquired from VIP Auction, and I'm try to design a model as the most accurate and most detailed possible, and printable.

    All the .STL files can be download here:

    Chappiehead

    Some renders of the STL files with Blender:

    Heres some pics of the finished head work and the CAD soft screenshot:

    Thank's!!!
    Caxack, can you take the yellow mesurements on your prop? It try now to understand how is maintained the camera pod under the Headbox. Maybe the Pod is closed the small lug and only screwed to the bumper's 3mm hole? (In red on the pic)

    Hi hopefully these will help ImageUploadedByTapatalk1439618651.651293.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1439618779.429508.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1439618831.771664.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1439618889.532930.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1439618923.216269.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1439618954.198443.jpg

    I thing the camera pod would anchor to the two back points, and may slip under the front lip. The hole on the side is fort the lower mouth bar and head tubes.

    Thank's for this valuable pics!!!! I'm pretty closed from the original props (1mm) I will empty the inside the front lip to fit the Camera Pod :) And just after that start the camera pod itself.

    Thanks so much for offering these on thingiverse Razmataz
    I started modelling the ears and the side of the head but thats how far I got before other projects took over, the usual.

    Looking forward to printing these out :)

    Thanks :) I've started this build because I was very disappointed to not find any free replica, or something easy to print without dismembering point by point a Mesh under Blender.
    But it's clearly a big work. Hopefully, we have the pics of the eBay sales from VIP auctions and the mesurements from Caxack on the original Weta props.

    I've added today the anchor point for the camera pod, and entirely rebuild the head box, it's better now. Now I will start the Camera Pod (That give me a small break before finishing the back of the head box).

    The Camera Pod is now readdy. I've included the splitted Mesh if you want to print without material support. I've not tested yet the print because I'm out of stock about Blue ABS.
    @ Caxack: I've addded a thin 2mm support plate to fit the Cam into the Headbox, you will be able to fix it easily into your prop, if not, I've added the full Cam Pod without this plate.
    Enjoy ;)

    Trial fit. :). Looks awesome

    I had the two part model printed by mistake however it fits well only 2mm gap either side at the front. Will now have the model with all the front detail printed, a bit of sanding and paint.

    Thanks for the great model.

    Once the moulding stuff actually arrives I think I will try and cast one of these as well.

    Yeah!!! That's great!!!
    When seen your pics, I just notice I've make a mistake: I've posted on Thinkgiverse a splitted file for printing without material suppport with some missing camera parts (On the left side and middle). I've corrected the bug and updated the files now, it's named: Chappie-Camera-Pod-main-Split.stl

    Thank's!!! I hope finding time to print my own, because I just received an original stickers set prop's :)

    IMG_2212.jpg

    About that: Someone know why some props (ear side plate from head, stickers etc..) are labelled "Denel" and not "Tetravaal"?

    Denel is a real defence company in South Africa, possibly a nod to them in the film?

    Where did you get the sticker pack mate?

    I believe they actually filmed AT Denel (interiors and exteriors), but I don't think any Denel logos are seen on screen in the final film.

    Hello,
    the full head is ready and a French Props Team ask me to produced a resin kit based on my files!!! :$

    The Chappie head files will be always free, but for now I've removed the files from Thingiverse because I found my high detailled pieces in others Chappie heads without any credits, so I'm searching another kind of hosting for the files. (Maybe Pinshape or My mini factory)

    Here's the full work:
    Chappie-full-eclate.png Chappie-Full.png

    Next step will be a neck, as a basis for the head and the Antenna.

    Sorry to hear that people are not giving you the credit you deserve.
    This build is on my backlog, the moment i got a 3D printer i want to try and make this head :)
    So yes, your effort is really appreciated :)

    That is definitely not on! You have put in so much work and were so kind enough to put the files up for anyone to use! That makes me angry! Don't worry when I eventually get around to making mine, your name will be on the mount and any picture I show off will definitely give you full credit mate...

    I'm with you dhunpael...just need to get that printer! haha (one that can print the size of the Chappie head)

    Hello,
    sorry, I took a big break with the Chappie Head. Many of you write me recently about the files released and they asked if I was still alive, so thank's everyone!!!!

    The project is achieved, and the STL files ready but I will not released all the files, because I don't want see my 200 hours work on sale on Etsy without credits. But I can released 95% of the files free and host the Big headbox on Shapeway. A printed headbox on Shapeway will cost 350$ (Without any margin from me) but if I split the headbox in 3 pieces that can probably drop down.
    Anyone is interrested?

    I achieved the headback in January, so it's highly detaileld, including monitor on the head back and screwed CPU (So you will be able to open it to steal the Key like in the movie) and Smooth antenna (not on this screenshot).

    This looks awesome, I would also like to print him if you release the STL files. So it's no longer totally free? 95% will be available and you have to pay for the head box file?

    Hello,
    the Shapeway cost for 1 piece headbox was overkilled, so finally I'ved split the headbox in 6 parts and printed separatly and it's works. It's easy to print, easy to assembly. (My printer is only a Prusa i3 with a 10$ chinese hotend).
    So I just need to clean some pieces (Edges) and the files will be published. Sorry, I'm not very fast ;)
    Here's some pics of the Headbox.

    Look really good :D
    I had my Chappie main frame printed in the exact same manner actually (except for the back "wings" that I had to glue together with the rest because a small oversight)!

    Used your grid version. Does anybody have an idea how I could easily install a sound broad? or a contact to somebody who would be willing to take on a small job.

    In my opinion, the cheapiest way is a small voice recorder board with an ISDXXXX chip. You can easily record your 20 seconds audio sample from your computer or DVD and when pressing a switch the voice recorder play your sample as an "Happy Chappie"! That can be more powerfull with an arduino with this ISD board controlled by serial or a MP3 shield etc...

    This is an ISD4004 based, but you can probably found something with a ISD1616 for 3$ on Alie Express.

    if there is room inside the head, maybe you can use a cheap Bluetooth speaker inside.

    I bought ifrogz Tadpole keychain size speaker for my 1/6 scale star wars figures and just my droid phone to play the sound clips or run them off youtube.
    iFrogz speaker is loud but no bass, good for smaller items. Chappie has room inside use a nice sounding speaker
