#3DxRobotics – Rick Winscot’s ROBOB (ROB-OB) #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Pasted Image 1 22 14 10 54 PM

Rick Winscot has been creating a number of small 3D printed robots and animatronic experiments — and created ROB-OB using entirely Adafruit parts! I love his twitter bio: “Has code in brain, soldering iron in hand, Art Blakey blaring in the background…transforms techno babble into reality and is strangely fond of the ellipsis.” You can see a few of Rick’s robotics projects on the Adafruit Learning System here. An d

You can work with the files directly on Tinkercad or follow the instructions in his Instructables post.

Here’s what Erin has to say about ROB-OB: “Rick is always making interesting robots — recently, one of his robots went to CES as a part of the Afinia booth! The LED animations combined with movements is neat to watch. There is always a nice amount of room inside of these robots to add in your own electronics.”

From the project posting on Instructables:

The robot is comprised of about two dozen parts that can be printed on just about any 3D printer that has a 4.5 X 4.5 inch build platform; PLA or ABS is up to you.

I’ve been building stuff like this since I was about ten or so years old… and I love it!

It’s amazing how fabrication techniques have improved in the last few years. Inexpensive hardware, 3D printers, and awesome boutique electronics stores like Adafruit, SparkFun, and Seeed Studio have opened a Pandoras-box of Awesome.

Are you ready to build your robot? Please make sure to read through the entire Instructable before making any purchases – parts are listed throughout. 

If you have any questions, let me know – I’ll do my best to help. Want to see ROBOB (ROB-OB) in action?
