KUKA KR180 from Thingiverse, fixed

I’m slugging my way through the end of a project and I needed something to take my mind off it for a bit so I found my first vanity 3D print – a KUKA KR180 robot arm. This scale model is fully articulated. I used an M3 screw with the head cut off to hold the wrist onto the elbow without sacrificing movement. You can get all the files on thingiverse but I found I needed to fix a number of broken meshes. To save you time, here are all the files for KUKA KR180 including the fixes. A couple more M3s will hold the rest of the parts together and I used some hot glue to hold the two halves of the humerus together. I really find this model inspiring, I hope one day soon to build my own.

  1. Hi, this looks great! However, I can’t seem to download the files. Are they still available?

    1. Huh. I thought I uploaded the files back in 2012. I have uploaded them again and fixed the link. Find them here:
