This ist my first little attempt to design a R2-D2.
I haven't created any 3D-object within the last two years so I'm not really concerned with it right now.
Particulary I have no clue of how to draw on the cylindric part, maybe I should check out some other CAD software.
This first sketch was done with Solid Edge v20.
Any comments appreciated!
The next step is now to build R2 in single parts that can be printed(regarding the problems with the overhangs too) and then glued together. I started with the dome, but I have to admit I got a little lazy in the end cause doing these spherical details is quite laborious in solid edge or I just didn't figure out how to do it right yet.
It looks like the .stl-Dome got somehow mirrored from left to right, don't know why.

So what's this mean?
We're sure larsan would love to see what you've printed - take a photo and share it on Thingiverse as a Make.
