3D Printed Robots, Unite…

We are starting to see a stream of really cool robot designs pass through the Shapeways space-time portal and I just wanted to take a moment to share some that I could find.

It would be really interesting if we could standardize a scale so that components from different robots could be interchangeable, with standard sizes for apertures in torsos for arms, legs, heads. Standard hand/grip sizes so that weapons/tools/whatever could be purchased from each other.  Please let us know if this is something you are interested in? what scale the robots should be? What size the hands, holes etc. etc. etc….

Until then, here are some of the robots currently on the site, in varying stages of realization…

Micro Tiny Mini Robot




Robot Trooper


Standing Bot

Ratchet Minifigure

Rose Keeper

Clown Class Guard Robot

Robot Arm

Go Blitz Panther, Go

Plug Me In


Warrior 3


Terran Assault Walker

Woah, there are way more but it shows some great diversity of robot designs currently on Shapeways. Let us know your thoughts on some interchangeable robot parts?
