NEW GUIDE: Servo Animatronic Tail @ Adafruit Learning System

NEW GUIDE: Servo Animatronic Tail @ Adafruit Learning System


Why wiggle when you can wag?

Add a touch of awesome to your interactive displays, costumes, or art projects with an animatronic tail comprised of 3D printed parts, a silicon tube, a servo, and minimal hardware.

The bulk of the project is 3D printed… only a few additional items are needed.

  • Silicone tubing ~12 mm (outer diameter)
  • Beadalon stringing wire .61mm
  • Standard Metal Gear Servo
  • 30mm screws (almost any kind wil do – you only need two)
  • 10mm screws
  • 8mm screws
  • Spring from a ballpoint pen

And, some basic tools.

  • Hot glue gun
  • Silicone adhesive
  • M4 tap (optional)
  • Wire cutters
  • Screwdriver
  • Silicone tubing has an outer diameter of ~12mm and an inner diameter of ~9mm.
