3D interpretation of the Instructable Robot Answered

Here is available for download a 3D interpretation of the Instructable Robot.
It's available for free and it's "open-source".

(Update : I also added a 360 video, and several other pictures)

How to open/view it :

For the .WRL, you could use OpenVRML or FreeWRL or Wj3D or InstantPlayer.

For the .3DS you could use whatever 3D modeler/editor/viewer compatible with this format (but this format does not contains colors).

For the .wings, you could use Wings3D (which is free and opensource). That's what I used to model it.

Something I'm really having trouble understanding is why you're designing it with polygons, it seems that interpreting it to scale with large vector patterns to sew with would be easier, unless there's an amazing service some where that makes cad files in to inflatables...

OK, one more thing I forgot... Hmm, I wonder how far they're willing to go...

He's been eating too many cookies.... :|

There is a kind of Homer Simpson thing going on there...

What's Homer Simpson?

fat and yellow...

lol. I'm finding lots of funny comments today.

It is not possible to eat too many cookies!

is.......that from experience? :-)

Given that the Instructable Robot is slightly different on each drawing provided by the staff, it was difficult to guess how fat he actually is ......... =o/
My theory about this inconsistency is that his shell is made of jelly. But that's just a theory.

oh my god you do vrml too? i use flux studio

Spinny Robot...To see all sides in one image.

That's cool =o)
I can't find a free linux software to make animated GIF =o(

Yes ! You're right ! I forgot Gimp ........................
Actually, I was thinking about an AVI to GIF converter (I'm too lazy !) =oP

What do I use the thing with?
