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/

Sorry, I haven't been here in quite awhile. Got side tracked on several other non-printing projects. I'm not quite sure what you mean. Can you post a picture somewhere. I'll be checking back frequently.
I have found that where the gears connect to the servos for the mouth, it just printed out a hole where the servos attached. Where am I supposed to go from here? I was thinking this is a great project for my grand children and their school. But, I can't get it working correctly. I found this out AFTER I had printed the whole robot. My wife is very angry at me saying that I cannot do anything useful with the 3 D printer. I have a Flash-Forge and it is a Replica of the Makerbot Replicator1. Please help!!!

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.
