Robot Offspring Discovered On Thingiverse
And then we noticed that a couple of these bots were quietly re-made by two brave Thingiverse citizens. Woot!
Here’s Xephius’ version of Wheely, with a hilarious description below.
This is a descendant of early high performance sport UAV’s that settled in BC’s Fraser Valley. They can easily be identified by the bright yellow and red markings and tell tail Stainless Steel Rodgers hardware in Imperial not Metric. (Canadian Tire doesn’t carry any M3 hardware!) Because of the relatively low number of wild UAV’s in BC (420 in last count), they are protected by the Province. Recent observations show they are attracted to Poutine, Hockey pucks, and Timbits, seen here courting a Sieg X2 CNC mill…
Just hours ago, a new cousin to this Wheely derivative popped up, too! Here’s cornwarrior’s version of Bumper Bot.
Two down, two to go. Who will complete the happy family?
