Officially, this was my final project , the piece de resistance
of my time as Artist in Residence on Instructables.
(Piece de resistance
... I always wanted to say that!)
Ladies and Gentlemen: I give you my fully articulated battle robot action figure, with dual missile launcher!
I named it "Jaeger", because I love so much the "Pacific Rim" movie.
I wanted to combine all the concepts of those awesome months. Toys, robots, missile launchers, 123D Design, 3D printing, and, curiously, reuse and recycle. Yes, recycle. Because I recycled a previous design (my Artic C.A.T. Tank
), for creating a whole new project!
You will see how I transformed triggers into fingers, wheels into joints, a tank's body into a robot's body. How I applied everything I learned about 123D Design and 3D printing.
