Maker has developed a 3D printing and mowers robot for Hackaday in 2018
Apr 02, 2018

Maker [v.loschiavo] has developed an incredible 3D printing and cutting robot for Hackaday in 2018.The robot is powered by solar power and is made from 3D printed ABS parts and can be controlled via a Playstation controller.


As the summer approaches, you'll probably take a good look at your weedy, overgrown backyard and wonder when you'll have time to turn it into a habitable zone.Well, don't think about it any more: it will be easier to tidy up the garden because 3D printing robots will cut the grass for you.

The excellent 3D printing mow robot was designed by the manufacturer [v.loschiavo] and has entered the Hackaday Prize competition in 2018, which kicked off two weeks ago.


This is an amazing creation, is also a practical: robot has a rechargeable battery and a 10 watts of solar panels (and cloudy standard charging base), and its chassis using 3 d printing ABS components.

The 495 x 340 x 195 mm lawn mower is also powerful and intelligent.Two gear motors are mounted on two large wheels with a diameter of 150 mm and two small wheels are used to locate the machine.

When shredding the weeds, nylon blades with a diameter of 255 mm are connected to a powerful engine shaft.The blade has a secure sensor system that can be locked immediately to prevent anyone from accessing it during operation.


However, this security feature is not the only intelligent function of the 3D printing robot.The semi-automatic lawn mower also USES ultrasonic, infrared and vibration sensors to detect obstacles, and a specific sensor allows the robot to know where to cut.

For manual lawn mowing, the 3D printed lawn mower can even be controlled via a Playstation controller or remote control!

The manufacturer has yet to upload the schema-and file, so it may be difficult to replicate at the moment, but we think it will change in the near future to meet the spirit of the Hackaday award.
