KRAMPUS the christmas demon,
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!
Have an amazing project to share? Join the SHOW-AND-TELL every Wednesday night at 7:30pm ET on Google+ Hangouts.
Join us every Wednesday night at 8pm ET for Ask an Engineer!
