It is a folding type robot that prepares 4D printing. Designed for easy folding of complex structures, this product has been designed to meet the needs of popular 4D printing in the future.
It will revolutionize 3D printing as a totally new structure robot that does not need to be supported nor assembled, just fold.
This design does not require assembly, but the head, arms, and legs can rotate at various angles, so you can play with a variety of things.
Especially, the arm has a double structure so that it can rotate in two directions, so you can take many poses. In addition, the legs are made to protrude to the front and back, and the angle is precisely adjusted so that it does not fall over.
The folded part is made concave so that anyone can fold it easily.
It is recommended that you use a raft instead of a brim.
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!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
