The Luxor Cab as seen in BTTF2, based on a NOREV 1/18 Citroen Pallas scale model. The model has landing gears driven by servo motors and integrated LED’s. To do get things as 'screen accurate' as possible , I used screen images and footage from the original hero car.
Starting from a 3d scan from the Norev model, drawn in CAD and 3D printed (SLA, FDM, Polyjet). Finished with spray paint and custom made decals.
To figure out the animation of the 4 servo's and the LEDs I used the EZ builder on a pc. The mobile ez-buider app also works great on this model.

@Buratino We did make some back to the future costumes as well. Martha made Spike and I made Data, both from Griff's Gang. Martha's costume turned out awesome but mine wasn't that good. I made Data's chest plate interactive with a phone running EZ-Builder mobile that could play the sounds (including the famous chicken sound) through an amplified speaker. Otherwise, that's all the props we've made so far.

Thanks for the link to your site, Martha and I checked it out and it looks great! Keep up the amazing work!

@Jeremie I Checked the costumes you guys built, great stuff.. Back to the future 2 I found such a great movie for prop replica/scale modeling projects!
The mobile EZ builder I find a great feature. I was looking around if there was a way to run scripts on the EZ builder without a phone or computer connected.. any idea?

Thanks @Buratino!

Yeah BTTF2 was the best:)

As for running an EZ-B without a phone or computer, it’s not possible, but you can use a small SBC (Single board computer) such as a Latte Panda or Raspberry Pi to do both (computer + EZ-B in one).

@Jeremie,
Do you have any experience running EZ builder on a Raspberry? Did that work good? Could be a nice solution to run a EZ-Builder without a phone or PC connected..

I have a bit of experience running EZ-Builder on a Raspberry Pi, there are some features that aren't supported yet but in general it works pretty good!

Check out the tutorial!
