Droid arm arm came out of the mold with a defect, so @gordontarpley attempts to destroy it. #mcmaster_robots #gtprops #smoothcast65d #props #droidparts

Not sure that's how it's supposed to work... #teambjb #propbuilding #moldmaking #droidparts #gtprops @gordontarpley

Thank you @gordontarpley for the kind present. A new project I did not know I needed. #mcmaster_robots #ig88 #starwars #bountyhuntingdroid #gtprops

@gordontarpley is in my shop wrapping up a very cool project. #mcmaster_robots #gtprops #gordontarpley #starwars #droidparts

Weathered Alclad looks great. #mcmaster_robots #gtprops @gordontarpley #alclad

Which parts are aluminum and which are resin with Alclad painted on them? Only @gordontarpley knows for sure. #mcmaster_robots #gtprops #alclad #proppainting #starwars #droidparts

Making resin parts look like metal!
Did a video tutorial that will be on my YouTube in the next day or two.

Guess it got hot in here!
a couple of months ago I moved my in-progress Yoda sculpt to a different pvc stand. Never actuly finished suring it up but all seemed fine until this morning. Apparently 100+ degree temps and Monster Clay make for fun times! Still early progress so not a big deal. Well, time to fix it up!

Droid bits! @mcmaster_robots just painted two of these utility arms today. Go take a look if you haven't already!
3d modeled and printed the pattern, made a silicone mold and knocked out these resin copies. Party time!

Little 3d printed Iron Man helmet!
File found on Thingiverse, Printed on my GEEETech i3. Gave this to @mcmaster_robots a while back and forgot about it. Might do another on the Form2 soon... #IronMan #Helmet #3dPrinting #3dPrinted #Marvel #GEEETech #PLA #Workshop #GTprops #Robocop #IG88 #Thingiverse

First time actually testing the fit of this droid torso.. obviously still in progress and the finish looks ridiculously ugly without proper paint but the fit is great, which is a good thing.

Making plastic R2-D2 parts look like brushed aluminum can be pretty fun! These are the finished parts just before I said goodbye to them. I modeled the R2-D2 computer interface arm in Autodesk Fusion 360, printed the parts on the Formlabs Form2 printer, did priming and cleanup on the printed parts (doesn't need much on prints from the Form2) then molded the parts in silicone and made resin copies which were painted to look like what you see here. Party time!
