Slip-On Plastic Forearm for the RoboNova-1 BiPedal Robot
by SolidWorksMagi, published
This forearm is designed to slip over the existing forearm and be temporarily stuck on using a drop or two of rubber cement or other easy to remove sticky ...
You can find a bunch of 1mm thick aluminum/alloy part files I've created in the 3D Content Central Library online ... it's FREE! http://www.3dcontentcentral.com/Search.aspx?arg=wperko
These files are importable to the Microsoft Robotics Studio ... another FREE PC software tool ...
Sorry, I don't know the strengths of the MakerBot printing materials, nor the tolerances needed in design ... hence I need a MakerBot to learn and adjust my sketches to conform properly ...
Okay, for those not clever enough to make large overhangs ... I added the flat version for MakerBoting. I should note that sketch orientation of designs is -90Â° out of whack from SolidWorks to the MakerBot files.
This is another of many entries to the makezine.com/go/makerbot contest ...

After you MakerBot this ... use a rubber grommet or tape whatever to snugly fit your small short laser pen into the 12mm diameter mounting bores ... I plugged my laser into Port 15 on the RoboNova-1 and set it to turn ON/OFF using a TTL-2-PWM adapter (easily found in hobby stores) ...
MakerBot a few of these and give them a try ... then send me a half-dozen please.
If you successfully make this with a 3D printer please send me the build-file and machine type so it can be uploaded here for others to use.
