The Great Pit Droid Build

By: Giles Redpath

Oh what’s this you ask. After the success of last years amazing Pit Droid Auction for the 2020 live show charity ‘Calm’, as donated by Dave Moog of Droid Division Print Club we have decided to do it again but this time we need your help.

We have over 40 parts to print and we would like you to help print, sand and paint one or a few of these parts, we are not going for any particular colour so you can choose for the part you print (will make an interesting droid).

We will supply the stl you need and please follow the guide below for the set up, you can use any material and please send your completed parts sanded and painted to our master constructor Nik. Please send your parts to Nik by the 12th July please message Nik Harber for his address once ready to send.

How can you get on the list – please post a comment on the Facebook post on DroidbuildersUK for the part(s) you are willing to print sand and paint. Please take note these need to be to Nik by the 12th July so he can put it together. We welcome reserve printers in case any one has issues. too.

We are using Droid Divisions Files which Dave has approved for us to use, please see link here to purchase the full set – https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/738096855/spacebobs-pit-droid-inspired-movie
