This is amazing work, I can't wait to play with one. But when I look at it, all I see is ways of adding components to make it look like a Samuri, and to fold it into fetal position and build a transformer around it. My question for you Sir is this.
What material did you use? and were there any tips you might have to someone trying to get this level of detail?
Im guessing you print it with a thick skin( or solid build), and a little larger so you can smooth it out with wet sand paper.
Really awesome and inspiring design. When I get my printer in the spring this will be the very first thing I plan on printing.
