Martin Slade is creating 3D Printed Robots
1

patron

I'm Martin Slade and I create robots using a 3D printer and cheap, easily-available components. I use a combination of these robots to automate tasks and I create videos of these projects for the youtube channel: That Robot Guy.

The aim of the videos is to give people ideas for building their own projects and to show people how I work through projects to try help make robotics easier to understand. 

I also have a website where I upload designs of all of the robots used in the videos along with build instructions, parts list, code and electrical diagrams to allow people to create their own versions of these robots and use them on their own projects.

My aims:
  • Create weekly YouTube videos demonstrating a collection of 3D printed robots to perform life tasks including: making sandwiches, bartending, paintballing, playing musical instruments and much more!
  • Create a large collection of 3D printed robots in the public domain with build instructions, parts, code and diagrams for anyone to download and use for any purpose.
  • Create short clips to share on social media of the robots performing tasks to spread the ideas and make robotics seem easier to understand.

I want to show how easy robotics is, so I use very basic software such as Tinker-CAD to design the robots, Microsoft PowerPoint to make iPhone apps, Arduino to program the robots and a cheap 3D printer to print the parts.

Some of the upcoming projects include:
  • Self playing piano, with budget £1 servos used.
  • Automated slow cooker with an automated spice dispenser that opens the lid, stirs the food and adds the perfect spice mix.
  • Budget plotter to draw on t-shirts & automate writing your Christmas cards.
  • A 3D printed sphere robot you control by tilting your phone to get through the 3D printed obstacle course with moving platforms and parts.
  • Automated frying robot, able to make you the perfect breakfast from your phone.  
  • Automated paintball guns, creating music with paintball guns!

So whether you're looking for project ideas, want to learn more about the basics of robotics, or just enjoy the channel, please support me on Patreon!

My goal for this project is $1200pm to move in to a workshop and have a large enough budget to develop the robots full time.
