I'll be placing my first order over the weekend after some intense scrutiny and double checking of all my clearances.
It's a tiny little bugger. just over 2" in diameter at the base. you might say it's life sized, depending on the species of dragonfly.
Below is a little still image of it.
There's also a video i put on youtube of what it *should* do when you turn the gear.
The gear case at the bottom is a snap fit with some prongs.
The wings are driven up by the pistons, and hopefully are heavy enough to fall back down under their own weight without binding up.
I always post about what i'm doing on my blog if anyone is interested.
It hasn't been around long. Only since I stumbled upon shapeways.
I'm amped though. I can't wait to get this thing!!
I hope so much that it works as expected!
Any feedback would be great. It is my first order. So, If I made any obvious mistakes. I would like to fix them before I actually place the order tomorrow.
