Eye Front Complete

The front portion of the eye is now complete with machinable parts and off-the-shelf components I can purchase.

Besides some common fasteners, the only components that were not modeled in the front subassembly are the servo arm attached to the element base, the spring linkage connecting the servo arm to the eyebrow pivot, and a rubber layer between the eyebrow and the eyebrow resting location.

The eye socket subassembly was redesigned to be lighter weight and more compact than Rev. 0 but it is now comprised of more intricate pieces that I can hopefully fabricate on the CNC.

Time for little break and then I'll get back to work on the rear portion of the eye.

Edit: Here's an updated view of the eye with part of the rear-top cover and pivot brackets:
