This 3D-printed Raspberry Pi-powered Rubik’s Cube solving robot has everything any serious robot does -- arms, servos, gears, vision, artificial intelligence, and a task to complete. If you want to introduce robotics to your kids or your students, this is the perfect machine for it.
This one-eyed four-armed giant stands 35cm (14") tall. 70 hours of print time and an entire spool of filament are needed to print it, not to mention over $200 worth of hardware, but once fully operational, it will surely wow your friends and neighbors. Scramble your Rubik's cube, place it in the robot’s grippers, press a button, and then sit back and watch this amazingly smart and stunningly beautiful machine put it back together. Watch the video!
This robot is fully 3D-printable. Other that the servos, servo horns, camera, electronics and a few dozen bolts and nuts, it has no traditionally manufactured parts. Absolutely no soldering or breadboarding is required.

If your camera is wide-lens and the cube appears too far on the photos, we recommend using short rods to bring the camera closer to the cube. The new model is called rcr_rod_short.stl. You would need to print 4 of those and 4 of the regular rods rcr_rod.stl instead of printing 8 regular rods.
We are happy to announce that the user Nomaxx has successfully implemented our robot and posted his photos, along with some very positive comments, under the Made section. Thank you, Chris! Also we have just released version 22.214.171.124 of the application for the ARM, x64 and x86 platforms. Raspberry PI is no longer necessary, the app can be installed directly on your Windows 10 PC.
