Pram connoisseurs out there will know that the Bugaboo is by far the best pram on the market for style, function, ergonomics and collapse ability, unfortunately they are also very expensive to buy and even more expensive to repair, until now….
With the increased accessibility of high quality 3D printing thanks to Shapeways, you can get your Bugaboo back on the road for $25, not bad considering I was quoted $250 for a repair…..
Following is a step by step guide to repairing the handle lock, without which the pram is near useless.
I 3D printed my replacement parts in stainless steel using Shapeways, you could try ABS and do it much cheaper but I really recommend stainless steel.
$250 vs $25…
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
