A while back, maker Ivan Miranda built himself a robot which could write words in the sand. He’s back to build an upgraded version of the machine which can draw much faster than the previous one. It uses 50 mini servos to doodle, two mini tanks to drive, and Arduino Mega controllers for its digital brains.
THE BEST Ivan Miranda
After building himself an huge 3D printer from scratch, Ivan Miranda thought he could do even better. The new version features a more reliable, and lighter weight bed mechanism, and greater rigidity for the carriage and printer base. The goal is cleaner and more reliable oversize prints, and a machine that’s easier to work with.
Maker Ivan Miranda recently completed his largest build to date, a working R/C model of a tank made using lots of 3D printed parts. Its motors and tracks are powerful enough to negotiate rough terrain, and it’s even got room for a driver inside. Check out the full series of build videos here.
