4'x4' piece of 1/4" plywood
#8-32 bolts and nuts
Electronic Components / Misc. Electronic Components
60 grams of printed plastic from FF 3d printer (no supports needed)

Custom parts and enclosures

BowlerStudio: a parametric CAD modeler
BowlerStudio is the CAD package used to create the animatronic heads. It uses scripts on the JVM to build CSG parts.


Electronics PCB
In the head, the prototype was bodge-wired together. Alex made a PCB and it will be awesome when its done!


Parametric head script
Running this link in BowlerStudio is all you need to make the parametric head assemble show up and become availible to edit.
Source code for the parametric head tuned to be wearable
THis is how to use existing scripts and modify them to make new projects. THis is also the firmware for the arduino controller inside.

Project logs

Morice's Day 6, Finished Build!
Project log #14
On Nov 3, 2016 at 4:38 PM - 0 comments

I finished Morice last night and he looks great!

I started by draping the fur over the body foam to test the outline. It's a little skinny, but it's the last day, so i guess i'll just roll with it :/

next I made a pattern using this floral print that we have a huge spool of.

next I cut the fur pieces: for the body

Next made sleeves and a set of claws to poke through the suit. These claws are terrible, but i guess thats the point?

Next I added the arm to the body :

And one more arm!
