So just follow along in the pics not much to explain in this step. (To copy press CTRL + C  To paste press CTRL + V)
 Use the snap tool to snap the pieces into place. to make identical arms and legs you can either copy and paste after you make one or just make four solids with the same dimensions.
The body has:
Length 2.5
height 8
width 5
arms and legs:
length and width 2.5
height 8
head:
height, length and width are 5

Step 2: Joint for arms

First create a new solid with the dimension in pic2. the copy and paste(copy=CTRL+c paste=CTRL+v) and rotate 90 degrees. Then add a sphere. Next copy and paste the final wall(you should end up with something like pic 7). You want to make the sphere just a little bit bigger then the brackets that hold it. Okay, now switch to top view and sketch a circle on the center of the sphere, and negative extrude. Then move the same sketch back so it is now inside where you just negative extruded. Now you just want to extrude the circle sketch into a cylinder. Now you should have something that looks like pic 15. Now copy and paste the ball with cylinder and move it out 57mm(pic 12). There should still be a ball and cylinder in the bracket. Now find combine in your toolbar and click on it, then click on the sphere part then the bracket part and make sure the combined is set to subtract then click on an empty space to confirm the combine. It should now look like pic 7. Next just move the other sphere part back in the bracket-57mm. Next just extrude a cylinder on the back of the bracket. Then fillet the edges so It looks like pic one and 21

this is truly awesome!!! I'm getting a Robo 3D soon I hope this will be my first print :D what kind of printer do you have?

this is not a minecraft person it is a Lego person. The top of his/her legs and shoulders are rounded and there are holes in its feet. This is a Lego person not a minecraft person. a minecraft person is all square like no rounded spots.

so how do you expect him to actually move if there's no space to move for him he does need joints in reality you know?? that's why he had to round out a few parts or Steve would have no movement.

Cute :D But may I ask that if you print this out, did you accounted for tolerance(ex: a .5 cm shaft won't fit in a .5 cm hole)?
moldypizza (author)  Numbuh111 months ago
I haven't printed it im working in version 2 that looks much better, and for this one I did account for tolerance :)
