1st Printed ESRA Talking Robot
by RobodysseyBrian, published
Update: I have finally finished the assembly instruction video. youtube.com/watch?v=QRSGdbrgLko&feature=c4-overview&list=UUVFLoZlTjw1ntq-6utlJtog
Update: The files ending with SK should work with Skeinforge. I have not printed those but they look good. I removed the cone from the pin ends and replaced them with hemispheres.
Printed ESRA Robot powered by 3 Hitec servos and a mini Maestro controller. The gears have Hitec splines printed into them. The servo action is controlled with Robodysseys ServoScribe software which has a free 4 channel download available at: robodyssey.com/brands/Robodyssey-Software.html
Videos of the robot in action can be seen here:
I have bundled a kit to make getting parts easy. You can find it here: robodyssey.com/printed-esra1-parts-kit/

I have never used Skeinforge...you are right, it fails miserably with the files. I'll play with it tonight and see if I can get it into a format that works.....again sorry about the hassle
So, is the main issue that the pins are not "added" to the primary gear assembly...if so, that is true and an easy fix on this end. Let me know, I am happy to do whatever with the tools that I have. Sorry for the hassle

3 Hitec Servos
1 Mini Maestro
1 4pk AA battery Holder
2 Animal Eyes
12 Self Tapping 4-40 screws
1 length of wire
1 Hair Scrunchy (these are from the dollar store)
I had to print the gears and eyelids sort of slowly...
All the parts were screwed together with self tapping 4-40 screws.
The only semi-serious modification was the 8-32 tapping of the holes on the plate that holds the servos. The holes need to be tapped to allow the nylon screws to apply back pressure on the non-driven gears.
See attached video.
