    Step Two: Plan Your Design

    Via: Instructables
    Aguzzoli first tried to directly match R2D2's design to the bus using a modified papercraft model, but it just didn't look right, so he decided to recreate it from scratch to better fit the model.

    Once R2's look had been finalized, Aguzzoli used CorelDraw and Photoshop to create the design and ready R2 for printing.
