Robot WALL•E on a 3D printer + paper scan
WALL•Eis a very cool robot! He is smart, interesting, funny, cleans up and sorts garbage, keeps order of things, repairs old appliances. And of course, Valley became a favorite of children and adults. For my daughter, I printed a little Wally out of plastic, she is crazy about this toy, especially since dad made a toy.
WALL•E has movable arms and head, the front cover opens. The tracks do not rotate, but they are not glued. WALL•E also has a shoe and a growing plant.
If you do not have a 3D printer, then the toy can be glued out of paper, there is a simple scan that any dad can handle within an hour.
Next, I'll just show you how the parts were printed on a 3D printer and how I glued the WALL•E robot. I printed on a homemade printer, green and red ABS plastic, there were simply no other colors. I wanted to paint the robot after assembly, but my daughter asked to leave the robot green.
I present to your attention a homemade 3d printer. Assembled from plywood, aluminum, plastic and Arduino. This printer is unique in that its kinematics is peeped from Ultimaker, but done with quality modifications.
This toy is also called "elevator for balls". Marble machine made of cardboard.
Almost all toys bought for the daughter do not cause the child's interest, which can not be said about developing toys made by themselves. Below is a photo of the simplest developing mat, which the wife made for a couple of evenings from old buttons.
They say that Russia is a technically backward country, there are no roads, robotics do not develop, rockets do not fly, and mail goes too long. It’s a bullshit.
The 3D model of the fan is very simple, easily wound on a collet clamp. I put it on my CNC machine. The first launch proved to be very good, all the chips are scattered to the sides, clean under the cutter.
