Skip to comments

Thought you guys might find the project I am working on interesting. Its an R2D2 BB-8 mashup robot.

So far coming along well and have almost all the parts I need for the dome. If you guys like the way it looks I also have a free wallpaper of it on my website.

Are you chatting with Anthony (xl robots) at all? He's got designs to 3D print the entire thing without having to source a bunch of components.
Well I do not have a 3D printer. So I am building it all from parts I have. Plus the over all quality will better. The ball itself might end up being a bit different more related to the concept art from the new Star Wars movie.

For the head I am using this fiberglass mid century planter. As you can see I will have to cut off the center and make that part of it.

Any way a 3D printer would be nice but not in the budget at the moment. :)
