Over at Thingiverse, the online file sharing website for MakerBot folks, user WilliamAAdams has made another printable robot called Yazzo PolyBot. This is a Delta robot, which is generally used for picking and packaging and has 3 arms. Delta robots were invented in the 1980’s by Reymond Clavel at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland.
The entire robot was not printed, but all the off white, yellowish plastic parts you see in the photo were made from a RepRap printer. Robots can now print out robot parts. When will robots be able to print themselves out entirely?
See our previous post on a Folding Printable Robots From UC Berkley.
Nice job William. We can’t wait to see Yazzo Polybot fired up and moving, but for now click through for a video of a different Delta Robot in action to get an idea of how they operate.
