Printing Details

This 3D model consists of files in StereoLithography (.Stl) format that have been optimized for 3D printing.

Before printing the files, we strongly recommend reading the PRINTING DETAILS section.

Version 1 and Version 2 are the files for R2-D2 Droid 3D model optimized for 3D printing, the preview pictures of which you see above.

It is recommended:

  • to print Version 1 STL files on FDM/FFF 3D printers;
  • to print Version 2 STL files on DLP/SLA/SLS 3D printers.

R2-D2 an astro-mechanical droid, he has a lot of instrumental devices that allow R2 to be an excellent spacecraft mechanic and a specialist in interaction with computers. R2-D2 is a light droid but it often rushes into dangerous situations without hesitation. This insane adventurism often saved it companions in numerous situations that changed the course of the Galaxy’s history. R2 has a barrel-shaped body on which is located a rotating dome acting as its head and one sensor-eye. He has three foot with wheels that allow him to walk or ride. R2-D2 does not speak, he communicates through a sequence of squeaks, whistles, and trills that C-3PO can understand. Perhaps his hosts also understand what does it talk. In its white-blue-silver case, there are a lot of weapons, sensors and other equipment. This makes the droid look like a "barrel of surprise" when it suddenly throws out any device that is very necessary at the moment. In addition to many adaptations, R2 is able to take the initiative into its own hands and find unexpected solutions. Perhaps these qualities are a consequence of the fact that the droid's memory was never erased, which added to R2-D2 the individuality.


R2-D2 Droid 3D model for printing was created in Autodesk Maya. The model is saved in STL files, a format supported by most 3D printers

FDM version features:

- Contain 49 parts;

- Made with connectors and joints;
- Has the balls in the design so that the R2-D2 can glide on the surface;
- Made with the maximum detalization of all parts of the droid;

- Has 5 changeable heads and 3 changeable arms;
- Rotating head and movable legs;

- All parts are divided in such way that you will print them with the smallest amount of supports.

SLS/SLA version features:

- Same as FDM but smaller and made as 1 part in 7 variants.

All .STL files for 3D printing have been checked in Netfabb and no errors were shown.

Note: Before starting 3D printing the model, read the Printing Details for CURA 3.0.4. Software.

There are 49 parts for FFF/FDM version and 7 parts for SLS/SLA version.

All parts of connectors and joints should be printed at 100% infill.
For all parts off balls (40 - 45) you can turn on Spiralize Outer Contour in “Special Modes” section for fast print and good sphere.

Scale: His tall in life is 1090 mm. Model made as 1/8 scale in FDM version and 1/16 in SLS/SLA version.

FDM version dimensions:

After being printed will stand:

132 mm tall, 87 mm wide, 62 mm deep - stock version;
140 mm tall, 126 mm wide, 105 mm deep - full package version;

- Connectors and Joints should be printed at 100% infill to make them solid.

SLS/SLA version dimensions:

70 mm tall, 47 mm wide, 33 mm deep - stock version;
74 mm tall, 67 mm wide, 56 mm deep - full package version;

- Has only 1 detail in each variant to keep printing costs down.


- .STL files of R2-D2 Droid for 3D printing which consist of 56 parts;

- 2 versions of files for this model for FFF/FDM and SLS/SLA;

- Changeable head and arms;
- Has almost all the elements that have been shown in movies;
- Maximum movable elements;

- Maximum detalization of all parts;
- High-poly detailed model of R2-D2;

- Detailed settings that we provide for Cura 3.0.4. for the best print;

- Full technical support from the Gambody Support Team.
