Default Thermoformed ABS

Jim,

Nice talking to you a few nights ago. Hows this for thermoformed parts.... We did all the cad modeling , machining and thermoforming in house. I have since painted him the correct gray color. He's about 3' 6" tall.

Default thermoforming

Yeah, I'm a little into the scifi thing. He looks cool next to the half scale B9 robot from Lost in Space. I actually do quite a bit of thermoforming, including a 2ft diameter Jupiter 2 ship from the same show.
