Print your own bot with a little help from design engineer Olaf Diegel. Normally, Diegel spends his time making specialty guitars. But he was inspired to build a bot using his 3D printer, and share all of what he learned.
The open-source robot features mecanum wheels, which let the bot move sideways without changing the angle of the wheels.
The OddBot Webpage includes everything you need to build your own Oddbot, including CAD, Solidworks and STL files, software, and a list of components and suppliers. (A few of the parts, such as switches, bearings and screws, cannot be produced using a 3D printer.)
