My take on the popular Google Android Mascot robot giving him mobility via the Makerbot Windup Walkers. http://store.makerbot.com/windup-walkers.html

Update: [9/24/2012] Uploaded a mirrored STL file. Pick the right orientation depending on whether you want to robot to walk forward or backwards. (the original version walks backwards)


Printed successfully in PLA on a Tantillus http://www.tantillus.org RepRap printer when sliced using Slic3r 0.8.2 with 150 micron layers and 15% fill.

Minimal cleanup was required, primarily just removing a few stringers from the internal cavity for the walker mechanism.

Requires one of the Makerbot Windup Walker mechanisms: http://store.makerbot.com/windup-walkers.html

Anybody knows about another source of these mechanisms? Makerbot is sold out.

When I was at Makerbot two weeks ago they said they have an order in for 10,000 pieces and were expecting delivery soon. Other than Makerbot, I haven't been able to locate a retail source, but there must be one out there.

Very cool! Great meeting you too recently on your whirlwind tour of North America!

It was great to meet you and the group as well. Thank you so much for hosting me and sharing all the know-how and creativity.
