Vogal the Dragon
by TheRat, published
The model does use a derivative of the dragon head: thingiverse.com/thing:1466
Any help with the programming would be greatly appreciated.

With any luck I should be able to post a youtube video of Vogal in action this week.Â There ended up being a few problems with the circuit board, so I'll try to post the updatedÂ board around the same time.
My deadline was really to have him ready for the renaissance fair in Wichita this weekend, but since I've missed that the new deadline is September 30th.Â I met some of the performers from the Lion King musical and they got a real kick out of seeing Vogal in his naked state so I thought it wouldÂ be a huge treatÂ if I had him running and completed before their last show in Wichita on the 30th.
Thats awful to hear about the tornado.
Loocking forward to ubdates and a video or something when you are ready. :)
I hope i will be able to get some time to do my own little dragon. It wold be useful if you added some kind of assembly instructions here.
Vogal was made on a Rapman 3.0 printer. The hole locations for the wings may be the only thing you need to worry about close tolerancing on.
The model files should be good to go, but the circuit board and code may still need some tweaking. I took a direct hit by a tornado back in April but I'm just about done putting the pieces back together. Vogal and my printer came out unschathed but I wish I could say the same for my neighbor's h
ouse. So with any luck I should be able to focus back on the electronics in the next couple weeks.

The rest of the files are print plates that should allow you to print these parts on a Rapman 3.0 Single Head Extruder or any machine with a build bay of 8in x 8in or larger.
When fully printed, his wing span reaches out 28 inches and from the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail, he stands 22 inches tall.
31 March 2012 - I just got the new PCBs in from DorkBot. I'm impressed with the quality but I had to do a face palm when I realized I had the capacitors (caps) in line with the rest of the power circuit instead of running to ground for power regulation. The attached BRD and SCH files allow for someone to hook up 6 servos and switch between two sets of 4 analog sensors (and have had the caps corrected).
