So now it begins. The construction of the middle foot. I have modeled this as closely as possible to the official specs using sketchup. I will be 3d printing this file, so keep watching, and will post pics , videos, and of course, the final files to share as always.

I am in the process of designing a center foot shell that can be 3d printed. My printer has a build height of 8×8″ so I will be doing this in halves, which will be glued together in the end. The final result will then be skinned with 1mm styrene and styrene details. Photos and files to follow.
Its been a while and I am almost finished with a new droid. I have been using plans not posted on my blog. I am now setting a goal of an R2 build done completely with a cnc and a 3d printer, no outside parts except for the electronics. No Parts runs, all Do it yourself. If you are interested in doing this with me, feel free to contact me, I work out of my Garage on Sat and Sundays. Feel free to contact me. I am willing to work with you to make yourself a full sized R2 D2 and may even offer a class at one of the Bay Area tech shops. You buy the plastic, I will show you how to cut and fabricate all the parts! How does that sound? Anyway, let me know.
