 Might not be able to get much done in Hillsboro, but at least it's a thing. Bike lanes help a ton, so I'm not complaining really, but it's **really** important to stay aware. Might not be able to get much done in Hillsboro, but at least it's a thing.

   * "bang bang" (on off) blinky lights don't convey distance very well. Our eyes need time to place something. So an oncoming car might think you are farther away than you are and cut in front? Plus they are quite annoying, not so good either.    * "bang bang" (on off) blinky lights don't convey distance very well. Our eyes need time to place something.

 +  * Didn't work making it out of flat InstaMorph sheet. Too much ripple.
 +== Making plastic parts ==
 +Check out book: Make Props and Costume Armor: Create Realistic Science Fiction adn Fanasy Weapons, Armor, and Accessories.
 +  * Should detail a lot of stuff out
 +
 +Might be able to make original using Pepakura. https://makezine.com/projects/halloween-2016-build-props-and-costume-armor-with-paper-pepakura-and-bondo/
 +  * Or the usual 3d print
 +
 +== Mold making ==
 +Probably want to make a mother mold since it's such a huge thing to make.

 +  * Don't need to use fiberglass or resin, but they do cure quickly. For cheap, can just use plaster, see above. Just make sure it dries out.
 +
 +Composimold probably won't work for resin:
 +<blockquote> Composimold is great for food safe casting such as chocolate. Plaster is an ideal casting material as it is low exotherm and will not melt the mold. For food safe applications, Composimold Food Safe mold release must be used. This is a great starter material for learning the basics of molding and casting. It is ideal for simple, 1 sided parts or basic figurines. **See our selection of silicone mold compounds for complicated resin casting.**</blockquote>
 +
 +
 +Follow Adam Savage tutorial: https://makezine.com/projects/make-08/primer-moldmaking/
 +  * Would like to try ComposiMold initially because I'll screw up. Need 9+ pounds for full object, so just get 12 pounds of it :-( Also mold release and bubble gone and 15% off coupon and free shipping!
 +    * Wait until after you have a design and people like it and you have it 3d printed?
 +    * Also might want to remove bubbles with vibrating thing. Or vacuum chamber. They recommend 170F and waiting a while.
 +
 +== Casting ==
 +
 +
 +
 +Probably going to go with either rotomolding:
 +  * excellent Make article: https://makezine.com/projects/make-41-tinkering-toys/diy-rotocaster/. Maybe read instructable too.
 +  * Seems a lot cheaper and less waste
 +  * Much easier to get a consistent thickness
 +  * Smooth-Cast 65D is recommended (cures white!), however,  
 +
 +or slush casting:
 +{{youtube>oUxIkeqJ6ac?medium}}
 +  * https://www.polytek.com/tutorial/slush-casting-resin-make-hollow-parts
 +  * Similar to roto molding, but less thickness accuracy apparently
 +  * Need a fast curing resin. 
 +
 +
 +or vacuum forming:
 +  * Fast?
 +  * Requires oven and vacuum

 Looks like the pros use clear plastic infused with barium sulfate: https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/light-scattering-grade-barium-sulfate-248191361.html.
