3D Printed Star Wars R2-D2 Astromech Droid

Hey, everyone! Today is International Star Wars Day! To celebrate, we have released the complete file set for our 3D Printed Star Wars R2 Unit! This nearly 1/4 Scale robot replica has been a long term project for us, as we perfected our 3D modeling skills and learned the techniques needed to be able to make highly detailed prints on a small 3D printer!
Since we're known more for our Water Rockets than our 3D modelling skills, regulars to this Blog will be pleased to discover that there is a definite Water Rocket related tie-in for this project. But we're not going to spoil the surprise. You will just have to watch the video we created to announce this project to find out what the secret is! Check out the video below, and let us know in the video comments what you think!
If you're interested in making your own print of our model, you can find the complete instructions for how to download the files from Thingiverse, print them, and assemble them, all on our build tutorial on our website. The following link will take you right to the instructions:
We hope you enjoy this model as much as we enjoyed designing it. And May the 4th be with you!
