Step 6: Head and Hands

I had asked a very good friend of mine to make me a set of hands and a head for Dave, but i mustn't have given the right measurements, because despite them arriving and looking fantastic they were just too big and heavy to be used.

So To get me through Daves first event, Allen made me a head out of poly morph/ thermoplastic... that stuff is brilliant, to those who have never used it thermoplastic is an incredible plastic with a very low melting point... it can be molded into any shape and then put in a bit of hot water and re-molded... The first pic is head and hands mark 1, in the following pics you can see how it evolved once i got home and bout some thermoplastic to play round with for myself

Nice use of Dave! I designed the mechanism and I love seeing people putting it to good use. What event did you use him for? <br> <br>cheers, <br> <br>Nick <br>www.gotrobots.com <br>
