Interactive Design of 3D Printable Robotic Creatures

Disney Researc hHub presents an interactive design system that allows casual users to quickly create 3D-printable robotic creatures. Their approach automates the tedious parts of the design process while providing sample room for customization of morphology, proportions, gait and motion style. The technical core of the framework is an efficient optimization-based solution that generates stable motions for legged robots of arbitrary designs.


LEARN WITH BEST ARTISTS WITH OUR SELECTION OF MASTER CLASSES


An intuitive set of editing tools allows the user to interactively explore the space of feasible designs and to study the relationship between morphological features and the resulting motions. Fabrication blueprints are generated automatically such that the robot designs can be manufactured using 3D-printing and off-the-shelf servo motors. Disney demonstrate the effectiveness of their solution by designing six robotic creatures with a variety of morphological features: two, four or five legs, point or area feet, actuated spines and different proportions.
