So I am once again building a new R2, but I have a new tool at my arsenal. A 3d printer. this time I plan on making every single part myself, no resin parts, just abs printed plastic and styrene. I am using the eggcrate frame designed by frank Pirz, and his egg crate designed legs, the strongest legs I have ever seen, and they are lightweight plastic…. amazing job Frank! You might ask what happened to my last R2, well Make a wish of San Francisco approached me about a sick boy named Zachary, and well.. R2 is now guarding over Zachary while he recovers from his illness. Anyway, here is a pic the day before R2 went to join Zack….
following is a new pic of the eggcrate legs and frame..
