1920x1080 rendering of a Parallax Boe-Bot chassis.  This was a bit of a challenge.  Virtually bending aluminum to the correct dimensions.

Thanks, Tim.  Here's a 3D PDF file of the chassis.

Very nice indeed.

I like watching a program called 'how its made' as I  have a fascination with the way things are produced, and what it takes to produce anything, your model just hits the right spot

Do you have the full robot built would like to see renditions if so? Excellent work by the way.Have you consider building drones?

I own several of the robots which I'm modeling right now.  I'll post more as I complete each component.

That is just awesome!  Beautiful, technical, and the 3D PDF is mind-blowing.  And inspiring - this is something I need to learn!

Thanks.  The bending was a little tricky.  It took some trial and error.  I also noticed if you deleted the bend "line" the part would unbend.  Strange!  So you have to keep the bend "lines" in a hidden layer.  Also if I had to make any modifications to the part I had to unbend it first and then (re)bend it.  That was a little strange.
