I didn't bother with angling the arms at the elbows. Perhaps I should. And the idea of relying on a 3mm cylinder in WSF made me nervous, so I put in an extra panel along the inside. I've since tightened it though, to reduce interfering with arm weapons. I also added a 3mm port on the forearm...for later additions. I might create another set of arms with the port up by the shoulder.
Wow, gotta say man... you've just taken to this like a fish to water eh? You keep posting all this stuff and it makes me wish that I had the time to work on my toy designs all day! Today at lunch I was finally able to spare some time to widen the head cavity for my Omega helmet and get that update pushed to all the other files it's saved in as well as update any of my shapeways listings that have it.
As for your limbs, I'm happy w/ the straight arms, makes them more versatile that way as opposed having a set right and left arms. If you carve out a little groove in the shoulder socket similar to the hip socket then your arms will be able to move outwards as well
I think that the thin part of the arms would be fine at 3mm. It's on such a small part and it's not like it's load bearing or anything.
Are you actually planning on selling your alternate Kreon body? I'm assuming it'd just be cheaper to get more blind packs right? Unless you are planning different body types.. that I could get behind.
I got an idea you can have (given that I don't have the time to act on it and you do). Shoulder bells. Design a part that fits over the existing shoulder like a cap and has a hole for the ball joint to fit through. You could do wheel shoulders, box shoulders, super sentai robo pagoda shoulders...
Just think how excited Dough-bot would be to have Ultra Magnus shoulders hahaha. In fact you could have a the inside wall of your shoulder bell with slit ball sort of hole instead of simply a hole. A hole in the center a little wider than the ball connector rod with a cut coming down that's the same width as the rod. That way you don't even have to take the arms off to install it. ^__^
