MakerBot TV S02E11 – MakerBot A Robot!

The MakerBot design team is building a Robot Petting Zoo to bring to this year’s Maker Faire. In this video you’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at how they conceptualized, designed and created these amazing DIY robots!

    Look, my account name is on the comment picture, thumbs up if your account name’s there!

    Yep! Look on Thingiverse for the MakerBotted MakerBot!

    can the makerbotcmake other makerbots? 😛

  5. makerbot says:

    wheely moves away from other robots – he’s a shy little guy.

    Is it possible to make robots that not only looks fancy but actually can perform some kind of more serious mechanically useful task? That would be very interesting to see

    But what does the chicken do when it senses capacitance? :( Does it try to get closer/further away from other robots?

  8. Sprinterdrift says:

    uhh I want a Replicator so bad.

  9. Tom Lynch says:

    I don’t think @tedRobotBuilder wanted you to show making robots, but to show how to design and make mechanical parts like gears etc using the 3D printer to make them.

    is this the new makerbot offices or the old?

    you need to make longer episodes and include more user generated content

    Octopus squirts ink, not squid

    5:12 …us he using a doorstop to saw with?

    Just a quick note – capacitive sensing works by charging an element and watching how fast the charge dissipates. When the charge dissipates quickly, it means there is a large body that is accepting the charge nearby, and the device should react somehow. This technology relies on changing electric fields due to the charged capacitive load, not magnetic fields as the term “inductive fields” (there is no such thing) might suggest.
