As I mentioned earlier, I wasn’t going to make the Star Wars premier deadline in December but after seeing the movie and a few ideas floating around the net I’ve decided modify the inner base slightly to give possibilities for opening panels, moving arms and such. Yes and that’s possibly a spoiler for some of you, sorry.
Anyway, now that all the major SW events are finally winding down I can finally focus on my BB-8 build. A good friend of mine James Bruton has designed a barrel-type inner structure that’s kind of what I’ll be doing. The only difference is that James has designed and 3D printed every single part. I’m planning to still use the ball I’ve purchased earlier this year to accomplish the same end result.
This is a picture of James Brutons design:
Once I’ve done mine, hopefully later this week, I’ll post how it turned out 😉
