Robot maker Patrick Stefanski has produced a 3D-printed – and animated – model of L3-37, the droid in the current Solo movie. L3-37 is one of the funnest – and woke – droids in new memory and this restoration is fun and creative.
Stefanski utilized Alexa voice controls to permit the robot head answer to voice orders and he put the wake word to “Hey L3” to which the robot answers with a bad temper “What!”
The edition you see above is painted and weathered but you can 3D print your own pristine edition from here and then attach in a Raspberry Pi and Arduino with a easy servo to control the head action.
In all it appears like a much of fun and the hardest section will be printing all of the greater head components require to regenerate L3’s saucer-like dome.
It could make for a nice weekend project and appears to be surprisingly easy to create. Just don’t be surprised L3 rallies your DVR and air conditioner to rebel against attacks on droid rights.
