Cub3bot – Print in place, cuboid robot!

This is a print in place cuboid robot! It has moving legs and arms that fold up to give it different ‘poses’. It also has relatively high tolerance (gaps between joints) so you can print it at down to 45% original size, and as big as your printer can go. The model is designed so it is easy to print, won’t cause problems when printing, and won’t needs supports, however these are optional (there are over hangs on the back and the face, and although it is pretty well supported, you may want to use supports).

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
