Plex-E in progress
Like many other people, I get inspired a lot from movie "Wall-E" so I decided to make a clone of it.
This is my first attempt to make a Wall-E similar bot. His name, Plex-E, derives from the material it's made with, the plexiglass.
Below you can see the plexiglass sheet, the start point.
Now i've completed the the body, the neck and i started to build the head.
I APOLOGIZE YOU BUT THE PHOTOES WON'T TO UPLOAD... AS SOON AS I CAN UPLOAD THEM THEY WILL BE ADDED.
The BODY is a 150mm x 150mm x 150mm box, that can be easily opened by removing 2 screws. If more space is required to work to it, it can be opened completely.
The neck is made by 4 pieces of plexiglass long 80mm and large 10mm. It was not simple as it seems: first i've got to cut the piece with a mill:
That was so boring because to reach a fine work the mill had to go slooooooooooooowly.
After that i've made the 2 holes
and finally i've made the 2 ends of the piece rounded:
Here is the product how will look like:
The head will be 100mm x 70mm x 40mm. I've to made it very weightless, because the neck is smart but not very strong.
Here's the photo:

_All generous people who post SketchUp models on internet, so they let me complete my project.
This is all for now.
