|This 3D model is derived from the CS:L plans published by Curious Marc. I would like to thank him for working
with me to
resolve problems I was having converting those plans into a 3D model.
I've added a lens to Marc's 3D model. I was unable to find any CS:L spec for the lens. The lens you see here is derived from the 3D model posted for the CS:R Radar Eye.
|I've segmented the model into four sections for 3D printing.
The Lens is an option. If you would prefer a vacuum molded lens there are several different suppliers offering them on Astromech.net

I finally found a use for the Dome I purchased when I first began designing R2 parts. The radar eye is held on with double sided tape!
Wondering how you are going to get a smooth finish on your lens?
We added a recess with 4 mounting holes on the rear of the lens and have included a mating disc.
You supply a 1/4-20 bolt & nut to serve as a shaft .
Mount the disc onto the back of the lens, chuck it in your drill and
