Building a BB-8

The current goal on top of my other projects is to build a static sitting BB-8 that rotates its head, makes noises, and lights up. The most iconic part of BB-8 is the ball that it sits on top of. So, to build on top of, I will need a solid sphere. So, I went to a company down in Ontario, California, called California Quality Plastics.

I printed the head based on the club files from the BB-8 Builders Club and placed it on top loosely for now. Here’s hoping the project progresses further in a meaningful way!
