So I have started a new project today that I have been wanting to do for some time. This one is will be another robot, however it will be a humanoid type. This will be similar to a robot kit you can buy from Trossen Robotics and will likely make use of the same electronics.
The goal of this is to make a robot that is 3D Printable that can be customized to our liking. I hope to have it fully skinned meaning it will have a shell and look more like a finished project. I have some of the electronics on hand and all the actuator motors have been ordered and should be here next week sometime.
You can see the actual HR-OS1 walking in the video below. I purchased this kit some time ago.
This project will have many resemblances of the HR-OS1 but it will be modeled fully in Shapr3D (Version 2.2.5) and 3D printed as I go. I will modify as many items as I can so that it is not a complete copy of the HR-OS1. The only thing I hope to use in this model is the program that was initially created for the robot kit. The program is open source so there are no copyright violations.
When I have this complete I will be sharing the STL files for others to be able to 3D print this as I did with the Hexabot project.
I finally have the kit and had time to build it. I got so into the build that I didn’t take any pics or build videos. However as soon as I built the Robot and wired it up I recorded a video of its first movements.
I also 3D printed a head and some hands with files provided by Trossen Robotics.
If you like the video please click like and comment to let me know. I hope to be doing many more videos as time goes by as well as many more projects like this one.
While waiting for my HR-OS1 kit to arrive I 3D printed a head and some hands for the robot. The files are provided by Trossen Robotics. However you can also purchase the parts here at Shapeways, the parts are printed in Nylon from them.
