Hello people of the internet and...

Unfortunately, not much has happened but i can say for sure that i've gotten 2/3 pieces of the robot that needs to be drafted with the 3 degrees . The hardest part of this was figuring out what sides are vertical and if so, how will i draft it. Since a majority of what im doing is altering the positive of the mold, it isn't the easiest to guess how it will come apart especially since i practically have no idea what im doing. But that aside, i also have to keep in mind that there is the issue of how my draft angles will interact with the other pieces. Will they go together? Or will they no longer secure itself as rigidly as before? These are all questions that can be answered after printing some of them out. But, there was an issue.....

As you probably could not tell from this image, the prints that i waited for are not flush. Flush in a sense that they are not solid flat pieces but curved. This is an issue with the adherence of the printer base and the plastic during the printing process. Therefore i need to print another one.... again...

Well, that's all i have for this week, until next time!
