Snippet shows the access panel to the drive system and the 3 points of articulation. The red box at the bottom of the drive is the battery which is a 12v 9am powersonic .It will provide the needed weight for the drive system to balance and stay centered.

Note: The Dome assembly and interior works are the same as the Builders clubs design. The only mod will be a V4 and battery mount.

Hi Anthony,

I am curious, will that much added top weight cause a problem? I see traction becoming a problem if the mast is shifted forward too much ?

I have a BB-8 on my want to build list, as soon as I get caught up from the Halloween stuff. PLA and ABS fumes again !

I enjoy your build concept and look forward to your progress. It is good to see you printing again since the fire.
