This design is a mechanical module for building modular printbots (printable robots).
The main improvement of this design over v1.0 is that it has been migrated from Blender to Openscad. Therefore the drills and part's thickness are parametric.

The documentation has been done with Freecad. For more details just download and open the freecad files

Our goal is to build the longest modular snake robot ever! :-D

There are more information (in Spanish) about these modules in the following link:



Print the two parts: body and head.
See the attached pictures for building the module
Join together two or more modules for creating snakes capable of moving both on 1D and 2D.

That's great! :-)

do you have code for yaw-yaw and yaw-pitch locomotion we can try with this remix?


Good to see that you now have a rapid prototyper.


I really liked the first one. Now that it's in OpenScad, I really love it!

I remember seeing the first version at the medialab prado workshop years ago. Its good to see this project continued. :)

Hi Zach! Yes, I am still working on it :-) Last year I have been concentrating on building huge snakes using modules made of aluminium ( Check this 30 module snake: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7D81t_ITMY0http://www.youtube.com/watch?v... ). But now, I want to continue with the printable version for building snake robots in collaboration with my students and the community
