Outer Places: Tell me a bit about yourself and PatchBOTS—what got you started on this project?
At the core of these designs are the ‘club files’. The club files are the official 3D files released by the admins which anyone can download to build a BB-8 for free. They are the standard by which most droids are designed. My droid is filled with a mix of custom parts, club parts and modified club parts. This unspoken “you share your files and I’ll share mine” dynamic pioneered by the release of the free club files has led to amazing community of open source engineering and design which is very rare nowadays.
