We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
Wheely, Pullus Sine Fuga Ex Machina.
Wheely is a domesticated subspecies of the common Flightless Aircraft. Found in the disused aerodromes of the southwestern deserts, Wheelies descend from earlier generations of autonomous UAV's. They live in rigorously organized communities called squadrons and spend most of their lives socializing. Largely ambivalent to other mechanical organisms, Wheely retains his ancestors ability to detect electric fields.

Wheely is intended as a project for the skilled maker. To complete this project, you will need to read a circuit diagram, solder a wiring harness, upload a sketch to an Arduino, and assemble a precisely designed Japanese gearbox.
Printing on the MakerBot Replicator takes approximately 30 hours, and assembly time is 4 to 6 hours.
Refer to Wheely Instructions.pdf for detailed assembly instructions.
