Shack Bot Collar To Lego Adapter by cdmacy Jan 27, 2013

Description

After building the Shack Bot, I decided that adding the flashing LEDs was going to be a bother. (As opposed to spending hours working on this adapter.) But I thought that having a Lego minifigure seem to drive the robot could be just as fun for the kids.

Instructions

First build the Shack Bot - thingiverse.com/thing:32510 - which is ambitious. It took me six hours just to print the body on that.

After that's done, print out this adapter to allow a Lego minifigure to perch in the drivers seat.
I used:
5% infill
.27 layer height
2 shells
on a MakerBot Replicator using ABS.

For a base, this part has two bumps that fit in the holes that the LEDs would normally go through. The other side is the inverse of the bottom of a three by four Lego piece. Put a Lego piece on the adapter and then a regular minifigure will fit comfortably in a seated position with enough room for the dome to fit over.
