Building a Dalek - 3D Print

All plastic dalek parts

I picked up the transparent (or natural) filament today - so I could print off the light covers (ears).

That means all parts from the model are now printed.

More parts for the Dalek

Printing progress. Lots more parts printed. I have run out of blue so some are red. I’ve also run out of red - so the skirts will be in black. All that leaves now is the ears - they need to be in clear - and I need to get some clear filament for those (they will not be painted and need to have LEDs inside).

Project Dalek

Posted: 2017-09-01 | dalek

Did some digging - and have found several voice modulators for arduino out there that can make you sound like you’re a dalek. Some of them also do the lights control. Some mention the wave arduino shield from adafruit as a useful addition.

Didn’t find exactly what I want (I’m more interested in one that can take playback rather than a microphone) but I did find that lots of things link to Project Dalek - looks like a really useful resource.

I feel I have to build a Dalek

While I was digging for some inspiration for a new 3d model I happened across the Accurate Dalek Model by user Audrey2.
