Bring him to life using the motors and control board from an old R/C car.
You will need a car with a third switch (horn, lights, etc…) 3 motors ( drive motor, steering motor and additional motor same size as steering motor),some drill bits, a hot knife/ soldering gun, a tinkering nature and a LOT of patience
I created the cavities for the motors and sliced my model for printing, unfortunately, my software can’t access the server for me to finish the wire channels. anyone who wishes to attempt this model will have to use the hot knife/soldering gun and drill bits to feed the wires as you wish.
The main motor (forward/reverse) rotates the waist, the steering motor operates the right arm/switching arm, and the extra motor (which will run in only one direction) shakes the arm holding the bad child.
The base has ample room for the control board, battery pack, speaker, etc…
The shaking left arm has been uploaded as 2 versions ( 1 is solid and the other is set up for the arms to be hinged LOOSELY, you will have to cut the slots and holes if you use this version) the hinged arms make the shaking seem more dramatic. I accidently broke the boys leg when cleaning off the supports and decided to install a spring from a pen instead of just glueing the leg together. this added dramatically to the shaking effect!
The switch simply gets glued together, then glued to the hand.
Place the GOOD child anywhere you wish for best results.
You can simply print and glue this together for an interesting decoration/conversation piece as well.
Anyone who wishes to make this can message me if they have any questions/problems with assembly.
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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
