12/06/18 - Last 2018 posting - Have a Happy Holiday & a Safe & Happy New Year!
First, I'm going to be unable to access the Internet until 12/22 while I'm traveling on a vacation cruise. So I'll apologize to those of you who might have questions up front. I'm making some improvements in the way Nut Traps are designed - see the web page that talks about it. They started shipping a week ago so some of you are in for a surprise!
I continue to work on parts for my Chopper Design,
close to completion is the Battery Box, Foot Drive & Shell
assembly. For R2 a redesign of my legs so that they are CS:R
compatible, and perhaps include the
shoulder horseshoes and possibly booster covers. It's time for me to
start working on the styrene Dome I
bought back in 2009 for motivation! First up will be a Dome ring.
Current Shop Status:
I'm getting parts from the CNC shop on a regular basis. [They will be
shutdown from 12/24/18 to 1/2/19] I've ordered a batch of parts
to be picked up in 2019. For Order Status see the 2018 Orders List. When I return from my trip one of the first things I'll be doing is to start the 2019 Orders list :-)

part of the design process I create 3D models of
the R2 parts that I'm building.
I'm using Alibre
Designs 3D design package and I'm publishing the models in STEP AP203
(.stp) format in English (inch) units.
The Models have been given a separate set of web pages. The 3D
models page is here.
