Small update today. This evening I've cleaned up and glued the first ring/layer together, tomorrow I will add the second layer.
I've also switched from a 0.4mm nozzle over to a 0.8mm nozzle on the 3D printer which has sped up the printing times by almost half. Wish I'd thought of that sooner, but thats how these things go.
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.
I support Mr Baddeley on Patreon, check him out.
I'm also on Patreon and If you would like to support me you can do so here.
