I love this. I need to leverage some jawas to obtain one for me.

I got some static model files from the BB-8 group. 2 days for one of dome parts has put me off until I'm confident in my printer again.
Happiness is a warm A280. Or A300. Even a Glie-44 at a pinch.

I’m printing Carys thin body files right now. I was going to for his drive system too but it’s starting to look a bit pricey

Thanks! Yeah best to have confidence in your printer first. I do happen to have 99% of a BB8 for sale ;) (not this one lol)

Ah cool, those are the ones I used in this build too. Yeah the drive is a pricey venture but so worth it with bringing BB8 to life

BB-8 parts for sale? Oh, the dark veil of temptation is descending.

The rather loud, half scale, "toy" one I now have is OK in a straight line but turning on the move is a whole different ball game.
