The Sphere-O-bot is an open source hardware+software project. Originally from Evil Mad Scientist (very cool robots), we have adapted the idea to our electronics and ancillary elements. Software, designs and use is exactly the same.
The frame was designed by Attila Nagy (Thingiverse nick: dibloff)
The list of parts to print:
1x Spring holder
1x MAIN_frame (with support)
1x Egg support
1x Pen holder
2x Axis support
1x vertical ARM
1x Rod spacer
NEW!:1x M3 nut Knot (replacement for the metal wingnut). You do not really need the wingnut anymore
The Electronics are OPEN SOURCE (feel free to replicate it if you want)
You can also buy everything (customizable KIT): here
or create all the jjRobots with the MOST AWESOME ROBOTICS KIT
How to set it up?
Take a look at this link: http://jjrobots.com/sphere-o-bot-assembly-and-user-guide/
NEW!:Sphere-o-bot KIT unpacking and alternative setting up video (thanks Geeksmithing!): here Sphere-o-bot Video on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UrGMX7NNNxc
PLA works nicely.
Using the same electronics and motors you can create the B-robot EVO 2! the fastest and more stable self-balancing robot
How I Designed This
What you need to create this painting robot
2x 623 bearing
1x Threaded steel rod (3mmØ,80mm length)
1x compression spring (4,5mmØ, 10 mm length)

Iboardbot, B-robot EVO...all the JJrobots
If you have created a B-robot EVO or the iBoardbot, you already have the electronics and almost all the ancillary elements needed to create your Sphere-O-bot! (yes, we have used the same items to create this drawing bot).
Take a look at the B-robot EVO, the iBoardbot and...THE MOST AWESOME ROBOTICS KIT
If you like the Sphere-o-bot and have a 3D printer, take a look at the MOST AWESOME ROBOTICs KIT
A kit of very different robots created from the same electronics and motors. Just print the frames and have fun! (and learn robotics with the Robotics Challenges with the Academy)
