Standard (Rectangular ) EyePod Buld: Trimming The Outer Shell:

Just like the turret ball shells, the rest of the parts of your EyePod are molded to be trimmed using the same trim tool in the same manner that we trimmed the turret balls… Take your time and remember… Gently! Lightly! And Backwards!

#1: After scoring the plastic using the blade backwards, the trim tool can be moved forward to help the process.

#2: This is what NOT TO DO! Score the plastic all the way around first using the backside of the tip of the blade until you can feel it wanting to come apart, but don’t separate the two parts… leaving it together at this point helps you to hold the part firmly and level against the table… If you’re not sure, check out the previously posted video again… I scored the parts before separating them.

#3 & #4: Trimmed Plastic Parts

#5: Using a regular Xacto blade, cut out the ball turret opening (This photos is of the Aerodynamic EyePod, but they are both relatively the same piece and process.)

#6: Ball turret opening trimmed.
