Vacuum Molded parts

Joe Fishback's Robot and Knewt 1.0 & 2.0

Joe Fishback is a vacuum molding expert that I met through the Metal Munchers ( a machinist's club). We met last week and talked about making Knewt's head parts using this technique. You can see the parts Joe molded for his robot in the photo to get some idea of the thickness of the material and the look of such parts. I'll be re-designing the head parts to better accomodate this molding process should there be an opportunity to make these in any numbers. I'm still persuing using STL for the prototype head parts.
