see the Junyo and Karl parts? That's an update
There probably is, but I got tired of waiting for people who said they could do it but it never happened.
Plating is done, except for the three petals - I now will have to hinge them and make sure they open to the right points.
The ball uses Shinano, Junyo, Karl, so far.
I would be interested in a map/images of the panels from all sides too!Could we get a map/images of the panels from all sides? I have reference photos but many are small and grainy, and don't have all sides visible.
I was hoping to make a vac-form machine but the size I would need is making it not cost effective. My plan was to buy two spheres, one to cut in half for doing pulls on the vac-form. I've been trying to locate someone local with one big enough.
I'm not sure that would work. I think the inside diameter of the ball would be too small to fit the outside diameter of the ball. And I would expect it to be thicker than what we would want. If you do this, let us know if it works because I will totally go this route if it does.Just cut up another 12 inch ball.
