RhinoBOT mini dozer controlled with BlueTooth #3DPrinting #3DThursday
Thingiverse user bqLabs shared a 3D Printed educational robot that can be made with DIY electronics.
The PrintBot RHINO is an educational robot that can push objects with its dozer and take part in “sumobots fights”.
You can see it in action at : http://youtu.be/r0RgC5rzKug
The robot has been designed to attach components such as servos, LEDs, push buttons, a buzzer, and other electronics parts.
RhinoBot can be controlled via bluetooth using an android app or also, can operate autonomously.
Check out the instructions and BOM on the thingiverse page. We carry most of the electronics in this great 3D printed robot project.
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
