The lift system - 1

Here again. After some time without writing posts now I can go on with some progress for my Astromech. Now it's time to think about a lift system for the life scanner and the periscope.

The periscope - 2

I completed the painting and the assembly of the droid periscope. Now it's just a matter of putting some "special effect" on the inside...

My 3D printer is broken

At last my printer died. After more than 3 years of incredible jobs I need to replace it as fixing the one I own would cost a bit too much.

It performed incredibly well considering that it was a cheap model. I hoped to make it last a bit longer, but that's ok, I can cope with this.
