Looks incredibly well done, bravo!

Excitement has washed over me. Thank you for all your persistence on this!MAJOR update incoming shortly (and I'll be posting a proper 'build thread too'). The master pattern is basically finished and being test-printed, just some internal parts to take care of for the electronics. Right now I'm very happy with what's coming out of the printer... might actually have outdone most of my previous kits with this one. Once I post the next update here, I'll probably need to start collecting either deposits or declarations of firm commitment to the run because we might be ordering all electronics to save on time and cost. (And since this kit will use at least three types of resins, I need to sort that as well.) Stay tuned...
Thanks. And I'm actually nearing the end just as the season is wrapping up! Well, for the main kit parts at least. Electronics will take a few more weeks. In the meantime I'm going to be re-checking interest here so that we can crunch some numbers. (I can't have my programmer do a bunch of work if the overall interest is gone. I wanted one of these anyway, but he's not a prop enthusiast.)Excitement has washed over me. Thank you for all your persistence on this!
Each copy will be a direct 3d print. Some parts would be extremely hard (or impossible) to cast without changing them drastically and the small number of this run (vs the number of parts) wouldn't make it viable (or cheaper per unit) anyway- plus, the quality will be much higher as a photopolymer print than if I had cast them.Do you 3D print every kit or print a master in separate parts and take a mold then resin cast them?
