Homemade doll waifu thread Robowaifu Technician 09/18/2019 (Wed) 03:58:38 No.372 [Reply]
I just found this board a few days ago but I've been planning for about a year to make a homemade sex doll, like the kind that will imminently be made illegal here in the US. I want to detail my plan. I know this board has an anti-3DPD/anti-sex-doll bias, but hear me out.

Like many on this board, I initially had the ambition to make a sophisticated robot, but realized I should start small and reproduce something others have already created. Since my preferred, ahem, flatness of doll is soon to be illegal, it would be nice to have a homemade alternative.

Smooth-On Inc sells a brand of mold-and-set silicone, available on Amazon and elsewhere, that is easy to use and designed for human prosthesis. I intend to use Ecoflex 00-30 with Silc-Pig for pigment (and freckles). I experimented with creating a homemade onahole using Ecoflex with limited success.

For the mold, I intend to build it in segments using a 3D printer. I've be practicing modeling girls in Blender. What I have so far is acceptable for my tastes, although I'm no expert at 3D modelling or the human form. I also designed 2 mold halves for a tinkerbell sized prototype. The mold halves have holes for screws (to press them together) and a funnel at the top. I got as far as exporting to STL to observe how the slicer handles it. Once I get a new 3D printer, I'll print these mold halves and pour some Ecoflex into them. I may also put in some steel wire as a makeshift skeleton.

I had a crap 3D printer that I threw out. I'm currently trying to move to a new city and therefore won't be able to buy a new printer until I get settled. Not having a printer is the number one impediment to this project right now. I would love to hear opinions on what 3D printer model is ideal. I'd be willing to spend upwards of $1k. I've been thinking of buying used to get a better deal. I'd like a large build plate to minimize the number of parts for the full sized mold.

One thing I'm not sure of is how to make the skeleton. I will experiment with 3D printing the skeleton, but I don't really know how to make linkages. Nevertheless I have started designing them using SCAD. I also wonder how the pros make the skeleton sit in the right place within the mold, without any part of the skeleton touching the mold. Would love to hear your thoughts on this.

Usually doll heads are separate from the body (screwed on at the neck) and the body is completely one piece. This is my plan, although removable arms and legs would be a possibility. I'm hoping to make a removable vagina as well, for ease of cleaning.
That sounds very interesting anon. Sorry about the printer problems I hope you get a good one soon. Probably a big print volume would be valuable for your needs. As far as professional techniques for construction and assembly, if you can find tutorials from some of the Creature Effects guys from Hollyjew I imagine they can give you some really good ideas. Stan Winston studios is one group that comes immediately to mind. Personally, I'd certainly like to see more ideas ideas (sketches, pictures?) of your mold and silicone work. That's probably an important area for all of us. Hackaday may be able to give you good ideas about how to create the armatures, etc. you mentioned.

>anti-sex-doll bias
No it doesn't. An important aspect of making lovable waifubots for anons is to be able to have sexual enjoyment with them. Asexual robowaifus are perfectly fine, but I'm fairly sure most of us want fuggable waifus. What most of us are opposed to is the uncanny-valley foam doll shit the world thinks of as 'sex robots'. I think most of us want cute waifus, not uncanny sluts.

Good luck anon, please keep us posted.
Seeing current replies to months old threads when the OP might not be here to respond is why I think you should post the original creation date(06/27/18) and a link to the archive(http://archive.is/fZCiJ) admin. Anyone interested can also read the previous replies.

This guy tried casting and molding a small test item and didn't succeed. Which is a good idea as he didn't jump into making a large expensive doll right away.

The outer covering might be the most expensive and difficult part of creating a sex doll. It might be easier and cheaper to buy parts from Chinese TPE/TPU dolls and modifying them than making your own.

You're right about what currently sells as 'sex dolls' they're just expensive huge chunks of cold plastic that generally look disgusting. That was the general consensus on the old board at the time when this thread was posted.

I've looked into what the special effects guys are doing and the silicon they use is very expensive and so are the specialized tools they use for proper casting.
not sure how the age of the post affects the information contained. and no, i've got enough on my plate already, feel free to follow along and tag every single post if you feel so inclined anon. At some point I'll populate the archives thread with both old and new archives.
>and the silicon they use is very expensive and so are the specialized tools they use for proper casting.
BTW, I've attended a Smooth-On class since this original thread was made.

Project: United Robowaifu Development Robowaifu Technician 09/18/2019 (Wed) 10:03:28 No.400 [Reply]
In this thread, multiple users volunteer to work together towards a shared goal of creating a robowaifu for production. This can be an open source or closed source project, that is up to the Anons who volunteer. Profits will be divided up after a waifu is selling. I am putting every cent I have towards prototyping and manufacturing of this waifu. I cannot afford to pay anyone. Please understand this is a volunteer project with potential for a return on investment but no guarantee. Only thing guaranteed is one Anon at the very least will be working towards a waifu for production.

Current plan for this waifu:
Height: 1 to 1.5 meter
Weight: As low as possible.
Battery Life: Ideally 16 hours for a full day of use before needing to recharge.
Physical Capabilities: A minimum of, sitting, standing, walking, laying down, and hugging her Anon.
Visual Capabilities: A minimum of being able to follow basic shapes, colors, and markers. Ideally capable of detecting her Anon and following him without need of a leash.
Auditory Capabilities: Capable of hearing and acting upon her Anons words after hearing her name. (Prevents her from acting unless you want her to.) Capable of responding with basic linguistic responses which ideally change over time.
Op here, for this project, everyone is free to assign themselves a position based on talent. I'm going to manage this project while contributing to design, engineering, and fabrication. Everyone is welcome to join this effort. Whether it's designing a linkage, designing her hands, or just giving advice, anything is welcomed and appreciated.

Here is a link to upload files to a pCloud for everyone to share: my.pcloud.com/#page=puplink&code=kzwZJ8qR0ehbWabKKPVT2Uiuk8EdMLTV

To download from this pCloud:

Current limit is 10GB of usable storage as that's what's free. If you get a pCloud, I'll gladly share the folder with you.

New United Robowaifu Project Robowaifu Technician 09/18/2019 (Wed) 03:52:49 No.369 [Reply]
Old thread is too long. This is our new thread. Pics related are the current designs for our cute loving robowaifu and a new logo design. New design is to be a meter tall. Current members include: Kiwi, OD, Iggy, and Dollfan. Anyone is welcome to join, all you need is love for robo grills in your heart. (Cat grill meidos are also a goal, possibly going to become the main goal. Actually, it is the main goal.)
I think that's a pretty neat idea to embed the servos and motors in the the pelvic 'bone'. Do you plan to have cable harnesses of Bowden cables running from there out to the limbs, etc? One minor location adjustment I'd suggest is to also lower the battery array position closer to the pelvis too – as close as you can and still take care of the other functions needed down there properly – to keep the majority of the weight as close to the robowaifu center of mass as possible. Keeping the weight there will help in all kinds of ways when trying to work out walking, standing, and pretty much all the other motions needed.

Is there a story about the logo design OP?
The logo reminds me of the BUF flag (let's hope that doesn't intimidate Dollfan), or a bullseye. Otherwise I don't understand its meaning. For all I know, you could be doing secret illuminati stuff, Kiwi. Taking that as an aside, I'm glad you made this post. I see that you have changed the feet. What's the plan for locomotion? Don't worry if you no idea for now. The design is fine. I particularly like the silly, silly mittens you added. I kek'd at the literal addition. =)
And now for some critical thoughts. A lot of proportions are wrong. I admit I got this wrong in the first place myself, so I am pointing this out to help all of us. The shoulders are much too broad and make the robot look male, which isn't appealing. Added with the fact that the ribcage is larger than the pelvis. To which you get a bot with a gender identity crisis. Since gender dysphoria treatment can be expensive, the proportiobs should be redrawn. Don't worry. That's my job. We need a change anyways, because we are working with an adult female body scale when instead we should work with something closer to a loli type build. I've added some reference, so everyone can get a better idea. In return, I hope you can tell me the probable size each battery is going to be since that is going to be vital when considering bone size and placement. My last regards towards the design is about the femur. I love the identical accuracy, but I think that type of mechanism (at least as pictured) is limiting. Perhaps a ball-jointed femur would suffice? We're already adding ball joints to the neck as well, so why not?
I'll start the new drawing once your input is received.

Papercraft waifu Robowaifu Technician 09/16/2019 (Mon) 06:21:35 No.271 [Reply]
Thoughts on making a paper waifu then adding robotics? I want animu grills but, most robots have uncanny 3DPD faces that aren't nearly as cute as a real waifu. With paper/screens, at least the face can keep the purity and beauty of 2D.

True Love Robowaifu Technician 09/11/2019 (Wed) 06:28:48 No.111 [Reply]
People who conduct serious work on robowaifus rather than posting anime: how are you going to make the experience (almost) equally or even more satisfying than the real loving relationship?

After digesting the Scientific Blackpill (https : //incels.wiki/w/Scientific_Blackpill) it's clear that robotic girlfriends are the way to go. There is one big problem: everybody craves the complete package which could fool the brain and _simultaneously_ fulfill all the needs related to sex, closeness, companionship, emotional support and social status. Escorts offering GFE don't give you the loving connection. Masturbation doesn't give you the postcoital bliss and satisfaction. Cuddle parties can't replace romance. Going out with friends is very different from proudly walking with your significant other. Visual, auditory, and tactile stimulation don't replace the scent of a woman or a feeling that there's somebody who can take care of you in difficult times. Most importantly - enjoying these things separately don't add up to the desired outcome. You still feel like you miss something important.

Many people claim that the major problem is the uncanny wall: it might always be possible to tell artificial from human, because as robots become more realistic, we will also become more sensitive and will always be able to tell that something is not right. Relevant paper:

https : //www.bolton.ac.uk/StaffBiographies/Angela-Tinwell/Tinwell-Grimshaw-Williams-2011-The-Uncanny-Wall.pdf

Can we even make a really meaningful progress in creating truly satisfying lovebots? Or should we give up and wait for the advanced brain-computer interfaces instead?

While the film is dystopic af that scene in particular is highly encouraging. If a man has to live alone, at the least he should have a beautiful and charming Visual Waifu to live 'alone' with!

To your initial question: You can't. You can only hope to make it different but still satisfying. It will never be equal because it's impossible. You could probably make it better, but by what criteria? There shouldn't be a focus on replication, there should be a focus on tricking the brain, definitely offering a functional alternative, or at least making the path easier for someone who hasn't crossed the line yet. I'm gonna go back to making anime now. Anyway, your questions about aesthetics and the absurdity of the project(s) can be traced, as with everything, to ancient graeco-roman philosophy. As long as the project contributes to the overall health of a people, and as long as the unforeseeable consequences of something so likely to be horrible aren't so extremely bad, then everything will be fine.

Also remember to hit the gym, it helps you understand aesthetics and how to apply it in the abstract. Like to things that you wouldn't think are related, for instance. It's going to be super important for waifubot waifufaggotry. You're basically looking at both a new age of art animatrix looking terror and it's going to be about as beautiful and chaotic as you'd expect.

I'm going to post anime now.

About AI Robowaifu Technician 09/15/2019 (Sun) 10:14:16 No.249 [Reply]
Can a waifubot's AI be done with only neural networks?

I mean, thinking in NN as black boxes and circles as inputs/outputs, could we get to the point where a system like the one I poorly draw in the picture can be possible?

IRL Drossel von Flügel? Robowaifu Technician 09/12/2019 (Thu) 02:50:11 No.151 [Reply]
http ://age-of-aincrad.com/forum/threads/android-2-flugel-3d-printing-robotics.3984/

Someone was planning to make an IRL drossel. It was cool, but the model he used was shit. I'm planning to have a project where one guy edits the model to accommodate servos and shit, one guy 3d prints/CNCs the parts (aluminum and silicone will be very important), one guy attaches the electronics, and one guy installs the AI.

We will obviously need better models, and since the only models easily downloadable are Charming models (which while cute, will be fucking impossible because of her lack of feet). We may have to employ the unholy wizard known as ADR https ://mobile.twitter.com/AdrianDustRed/status/1094362800573636608, because while he is a furfag dickgirl loving nigger, he has good models that can be edited to accommodate electronics.
