#3DxRobotics – Michael Overstreet: Great first tests of my under 1000 USD 3d printed Humanoid robot prototype #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Michael Overstreet imaterialize 2

Michael Overstreet is one of the most passionate humanoid robot hobbyists and bloggers out there in the maker community, presenting about the DARwin-Op and other platforms at Maker Faires, Robo Games, and other venues with a mission to introduce more people to this field.

This past year he has focused his efforts on finding desktop 3D printing solutions to make these amazing little robots more affordable to produce — and more hackable — so that more people can participate in what can be otherwise quite an expensive hobby. The logic of how the typical humanoid robot parts fit together has been considered from the perspective of injection molding, so many of the parts have had to be adjusted/redesigned to suit this evolving new medium.

He documents most of his work here on his robotics blog I, Bioloid — check out these great results he is getting lately from his printed robot! (And check out his guest blog series at iMaterialize for some more of his thoughts specifically on 3DP + robotics.)

Great first tests of my under 1000 USD 3d printed Humanoid robot prototype.

Below are some videos of a basic demo and of it walking. So far I have had no issues with the 3d printed brackets!
