The Cube Brings A Robot To Life

The other day I was scheming about Cubify with my good friend Mark Danks of My Robot Nation, a company recently acquired by 3D Systems. The robots you create at My Robot Nation are basically statues. You can pose your robot after you create it in the browser. But once printed they come out as one piece.

Mark has been working on something that lets people print Robots on the Cube that kids can actually play with by moving their body parts. I offered my Cube to help him test his stuff out. And this is what I ended up with.

Here is a video showing how I assembled the robot.

My boys are having a blast with the robot. Tomorrow is Father’s Day and instead of ordering the usual “Happy Father’s Day” cake this is what my boys told their mother to order for me. 😉

     Great boys! It’s the best feeling to be a father, even without… Cube 🙂

  • Chris

    Nice articulation on the little bot. Your boys are lucky they can get on demand toys, enjoy your fathers day!

    Amazing….! If only one could print in different colors…. that would be awesome… 🙂 can we expect this from the next gen Cube? 😉

      It’s possible to print out several sets in different colors and mix the pieces to create a colorful Robot Army! After all, who could simply just want to print out one of those things! :)’

      I’m addicted! LOL!

    Love My Robot Nation and the idea of being able to eventually print our own with the Cube. I’d also like to see versions that are specifically designed NOT to require the raft and supports.
