While a had small delay waiting for some more filament to arrive I worked on the Flying DeLorean, also a new version of the printable R2D2 body was released by the wonderful Michael Baddeley over on Thingiverse. This new version is so much better I made the tough decision to scrap the 2 months of evenings I've already put in and started again.
The new version is component based and much stronger, it's made up of 65 print files and I can print around 1 part each evening and a couple extras on the weekend. At the time of writing this, I'm almost a quarter of the way through printing.
Many people before me have built R2D2 and other R2 units. I wanted a big 3D print project so I thought why not.
The printable R2D2 body that you see me making here was released by the wonderful Michael Baddeley over on Thingiverse.
