3D Printed BB-8 Roll Your Own Droid!

 |  |  |  |  December 2, 2014

Remember that lovable rolly-polly droid that rolled into our hearts during its brief appearance in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer? Of course you do. It was only a few days ago. Disney certainly wasted no time Disney-fying our favorite sci-fi property. And long before the merchandise licensing group gets to it, you make your own roller droid – aka BB-8.

You can already have an action figure of this little guy by downloading a file to 3D print your own Force Awakens droid. Because I guess you can’t glue a dome onto a ball and paint it.

Attach a cord to either side of him and you have a Rancor ball gag. If you’re into that short of thing. Or you could make a bunch and set them on a pool table for some droid billiards.
