41 year-old Bruton has been making things with his hands since he was a child, and was early in taking advantage of the increased accessibility of desktop 3D printing. Since 2004 he has been building robots of various kinds, posting his projects on his YouTube channel as well as the dedicated website Xrobots. He started implementing 3D printed parts into his robotics projects around five years ago. This 3D printed sculpture, completed in July of last year, is his crowning achievement so far.
