#3DxRobotics – Michael Curry’s DangerBall #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Michael curry dangerball opening 2

Michael Curry, aka Skimbal, is one of Thingiverse’s / desktop 3D printing’s iconic designers. He swirls together humor/pop culture and his deep passion to learn (and then teach) how machines work — and out of this collision has emerged a wide range of influential and often-cited printable projects such as the Gothic Cathedral Playset (new files here!) and the Turtle Shell Racer.

He has created a number of 3D printed robot projects to date, and these photos from a sneak peak of his Dangerball! robot at this year’s World Maker Faire in New York show his latest exploration of the project he has been slowly tinkering on for a few years: a maker-friendly printable spherical robot.

  1. almost like a destroyer droid from starwars

  2. Hey what board or system is he using, can it move in when is closed?
    Just interest i designed one similar, but in stuck, because is required to move like a ball going a on stairs and ramps.
