After a few discussions, a few prototypes, and a few short drives to Ruston, Louisiana, the plexiglass Boomabot statue was born! I decided to chronicle the assembly process via a (two-part) step-by-step blog....here we go:
|I eagerly picked up the box of bot parts at Cassidy's house...he was gracious enough|
to do the laser cutting, but now it was time to get down to business.
|First, I laid out the pieces to make sure all of the bots were good to go.|
I had enough for ten statues — we figured that was a good starting point and
plan to produce another run in the future.
|Though removing protective tape from acrylic was a tedious process,|
it was still fun to see the various colors revealed. And I only stabbed myself twice
with the X-Acto knife. Be careful, kids.
