Introduction: House With Robotic Legs (scene)
For this project you will need:
- Scrap wood
- A hot glue gun
- A exact-o knife
- Acrylic paint
- spray paint (optional)
Step 1: Plan Out Your Design in Tinkercad
Figure out the measurements of the house you want in tinkercad.
Then design the robotic legs for that house.
Step 2: Use the Measurements From Tinkercad to Cut the Foamcore
Cut the foamcore, then glue the first level together with your hot glue. (Dont forget to paint the foamcore black were you want to put the bricks.)
Step 3: Take Strips of Your Foamcore and Cut Them Into Little Brick Shapes
Make sure to make enough to fill your walls.
Step 4: Paint Those Foam Bricks With Grey Acrylic Paint
Step 5: Drybrush the Bricks With a Lighter Shade of Grey
Step 6: Attach Bricks and Pillars Onto the Foamcore
Take the bricks you made and glue them onto the board. Use your wood to make the pillars on all sides.
Step 7: Create the Second Level of the House
Step 8: Make the Roof
Cut the wood into shingle shapes and glue them onto boards. Paint them with acrylic wash, then attach them to the roof like shingles.
Step 9: Divide the Legs Into Pieces and Print Them
Step 10: Glue the Pieces Together
Step 11: Spray Paint the Legs Chrome
Step 12: Glue the House on Top And... Voila!
