#3DxRobotics – Erin RobotGrrl Guest Curator for #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Pasted Image 1 22 14 11 54 PM

From time to time on #3DThursday, I reach out to someone from the 3D printing and maker community to suggest projects I haven’t shared here before. (As I did last week with some new excellent #3DxArt suggestions from Tom Burtonwood, and back on November 21st when I asked Mike Overstreet for advise for my first round-up of 3DxRobotics projects here.)

I’m very pleased to share a selection of inspiring 3D printed robotics projects recommended by Erin RobotGrrl, who was the first to speak up and tell me, “Hey, there are more great 3D printed robots!” after the wrap up of my short survey of 3DxRobotics examples last November. Well, I challenged her to come up with a list of ten good examples, and she quickly sent me twelve!

To kick off the series, here’s my chance to highlight one of her own 3D printed robotics projects, Botbait, which draws together a number of experiments she has been making with both 3D printed robotics solutions as well as 3D design tools:

Tentacle Mechanism Animatronic Robot

This robot is a great way to dive into the world of animatronic tentacle mechanisms and explore different ways of interacting with a robotic creature.

Also known as Botbait, this robot moves organically, lights up charismatically, and enjoys interacting with you.

Available as a kit, a kit including electronics, and customised & assembled.

Read More about Botbait here. and check out the introduction and making-of videos below!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
