#3DxRobotics – RoboGrrl’s Open Hardware 3D Printed Buddy 4000 Chassis #3DThursday #3DPrinting

RobotGrrl‘s passion for making and sharing open source robots has lately lead her into an exploration of desktop 3D printing and CAD tools. One of the projects to come out of these new experiments is the Buddy 4000 Chassis: A classy 3D printed robot chassis designed to express robot emotions with an artistic flair.

Created by RobotGrrl and shared in the RoboBrrd Store here:

Buddy 4000 is everything you are looking for in a robot chassis that looks like a classic robot.

Features include:

Posable Movements

With the ball & socket joints on the arms, head, and feet, you are able to pose the robot in a myriad of different ways. This can be used to portray robot emotion.

Servos

There is mounting space for servos in the head and side panels of the body for the arms. Plug the servos into an Arduino or the microcontroller of your choice, and you can make the robot move.

LEDs

The head has a mounting area for two 5mm LEDs to be inserted. In the dark, this casts a nice glow inside of the head and through the eye sockets.

Art

What is a robot without art? The chassis comes with plates that can be attached to the skeleton of the robot. Choose from different designs of plates to create the elemental style of the robot.
