A Lego Robot that Builds Lego Houses

0 BookmarksLog in to bookmark

Making your own rapid prototyping machines at home is now not uncommon, but this is one of the first meta-bots I've seen - a robot made of Lego parts that prints using Lego parts as the raw material. Apparently, you can design the creations in a Lego CAD program, and feed them to this machine. It even presses down the bricks!

I've always wondered if I could build a Lego machine that assembles Legos. I finally came up with an idea this summer to make it happen. The printer uses 3 Lego Mindstorms NXT Bricks, along with 9 NXT motors, and is inspired by the great work done by the MakerBot and RepRap teams.
