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.
