We’ll be speaking about ModiBot, the role of Making and guerrilla product development in the current ‘free agent’ economy.
Come build some ‘bots at the conference or bring the kids and come see us at San Mateo Maker Faire on May 18th and 19th!
We’ve finally updated the home page for our DevLabs site! All the work we’ve been doing on ModiBot and exploring the realm of 3d printing has left very little time for house keeping.
Nice to see ModiBot covered on the front page, now and a little bit of discussion about how ModiBot fits into the ever-shifting market of ideas.
ModiRaptor Model up for viewing at SketchFab.com!
Trying to get all the full figure kits up for easy viewing for BotShoppers
Had a great time last weekend catching up on product photography (I think I only got about half way through). Its great to sit and play with the parts and look at how the models are translating to the 3d printing process. The sockets seem pretty tight, so everything posed well.
I caught a comparison a pic of the ABS ‘Print@Home’ version of the Mo model called Max because he’s much larger than Mo. We increased his size to test that the joints maintain their strength in the ABS materials that most hobby/home printers use. We’ve also modified the basic Mo body for printing by closing off the holes on the sockets. This new normal-sized Mo is available for download at 3D Burrito.
ModiBot Guest Custom Kit: Culinary Crusader by Kouri
ModiBot fan and multi-media builder, Kouri (http://kourikustoms.com/) requested a custom-assembled kit for one of his original characters. You can check out some of his pics he took at the product page.
Definitely worth a looksey. Its a real fun kit for folks who might be interested in cooking and hero fantasy.
Check it out at the BotShop
Lot’s ‘o ‘bots!
Here’s a quick ‘hands-on’ video from the awesome batch of proto parts I got in the mail on Weds.
I’m going to make more of an effort to do these more often. Its the best way to see the parts and their basic function.
A peek at the in-process, ModiBot part matrix
Ever wonder how you’re supposed to dig through all those crazy parts on in the BotShop and figure out what the heck you might want to build. Completely impossible….
For the last week or so, we’ve been compiling all the parts into a sort of catalog so people can see them, understand what they do and decide if they might like to get them. I’ve built more than 400 parts and many haven’t even been introduced into the shop (you can see several unreleased parts in the pic), so this will be a sort of living document.
The goal is for fans to use this to make a wish list of part and contact us directly to put the parts into one model (which tends to be cheaper than buying a la carte from the shop). I’ve been loading custom sets for people and working out the kinks in the process.
We’ll try to get this out in the next week or two. It should make the ModiBot shopping experience a bit easier in the short term.
Check it out and I’ll be sharing more next week.
Friend and ModiBot fan Ryan Lesser is crushing it with a new game that pits the pantheons of Greece and Norse gods in a battle for dominance!
Check out the video and drop by to back his project at his Kickstarter page
ModiBot super-backer, Trés, has set up a ModiBot thread over at the October Toys forum. Drop by and share some of your builds, mod tricks, and plans for future figures.
Curious about the parts on the MODILOCK action figure at the FAKEGRIMLOCK Kickstarter?
Here’s a 3d viewer, so you can see the AWESOME for yourself.
