On Saturday we got to play with one of the RoboBeasts fresh off the production line – Arnold took these stunning pictures:
Printing some quadcopter parts
Apart from helping out with the testing (uhmm…yeah right), the reason for us wanting to use the RoboBeast is, it is FAST!!! If you have ever messed around with 3d printing, you will know there is a lot of waiting involved… also it has a massive print bed (320 x 385mm) so quadcopter frames easily fit onto it
We printed parts for the Spidex Micro (https://www.youmagine.com/designs/spidex-micro-by-quaternium) and Squiggles – Philip’s quadruped remix (http://www.thingiverse.com/make:48438):

The RoboBeast and Morgan joint production line is currently in the back section of House4Hack, occupying the old garage and main bedroom (the yellow bits in the picture below). The new workshop has been filled with some impressive machines and members are welcome to use these after completing the initiation course.
Robohand has been hard at work at House4Hack over the weekend and their aim is to produce an inexpensive 3d printable prosthetic leg: roboleg
First prototype of the RoboLeg
Richard has been thinking about this idea for a while and decided to host a maker’s weekend with designers, practitioners and enthusiasts from Robohand Cape Town, Australia and Robohand HQ. Also collaborating with Quentin Harley (designer of the award winning Reprap Morgan) and Bernhard Vogt (owner of CAD House 3d printers).
