Hello, I've recently started making and sharing home DIY projects. I'm really enjoying making these and speaking with the people who make one of their own. It hass become my new hobby and I hope to be able to do it one day a week for work someday.

  • BB8 Droid - Arduino | Remote Controlled | 3D Printed

    The parts were designed in SolidWorks. It's costly software that I get to use at work outside of work hours. :)Onshape is very close to Solidworks and has a free level. If your not sure what to use I would recommend starting with OnShape. https://www.onshape.com/

  • BB8 Droid - Arduino | Remote Controlled | 3D Printed

    I printed mine in PLA. The parts don't undergo a lot of stress. The widest print is the half spheres at 195mm diameter. The tallest is the chassis at about 15cm high.

    As above, diameter is 195mm and heights are about 100mm. Hope this all helps.

    It took me about three months but I has to design everything from scratch. You could easily build it within two weeks. People on Thingiverse have reported about 2 weeks.Printing the base took my printer 19 hours.The diameter of the half spheres is 195mm (which makes it about 100mm high.)The tallest part (the internal chassis) is just under 15cm high.

    The white primer and sharpies are purely for decorating. You can still build one without these and it will be fully functioning.
