The Sphere-O-bot is a friendly art robot that can draw on spherical or egg-shaped objects from the size of a ping pong ball to a large duck egg (4-9 cm).

The robot is based on the original design of Evil Mad Scientist 

Untitled3


Features:

The Sphere-O-Bot is a simple 2 axis drawing machine that can draw on most spherical surfaces. You can use it to decorate balls or eggs.  This design also features the regular JJrobots electronics (the same we have used in all our robots). So you can create this robot or any other just simply printing new 3D printed parts and uploading the appropriate code.

The original idea belongs to Evil Mad Scientist 

The frame was designed by Attila Nagy

The Sphere-O-bot is adjustable, and is designed to draw on all kinds of things that are normally “impossible” to print on. Not just eggs but ping pong balls, Christmas ornaments, light bulbs, and (yes) eggs (duck, goose, hens…).

The Sphere-O-bot frame was designed by Attila Nagy and slightly modified by JJrobots. The pen and egg motors are high-torque precision stepping motors, and the pen lift mechanism is a quiet and reliable servo (SG90) motor.


The Sphere-O-bot KIT

The KIT includes:

All you need to create your own Sphere-O-bot. Just follow the assembly instructions in order to set it up. With this KIT you won’t have problems getting the right cables, power supply, bolts… It is just assembling

You can use it to decorate balls or eggs.  This design also features the regular JJrobots electronics (the same we have used in all our robots).

The Sphere-O-bot is adjustable, and is designed to draw on all kinds of things that are normally “impossible” to print on. Not just eggs but ping pong balls, christmas ornaments, light bulbs, and (yes) eggs (duck, goose, hens…).

The Sphere-O-bot frame was designed by Attila Nagy and slightly modified by JJrobots. The pen and egg motors are high-torque precision stepping motors, and the pen lift mechanism is a quiet and reliable servo (SG90) motor.

The kit is easy to assemble in an hour or so, and only requires a couple of basic tools like miniature Phillips-head and flathead screwdrivers. You’ll also need a reasonably modern computer with an available USB port (Mac, Windows or Linux), plus internet access to download assembly instructions and necessary software (Inkscape)

.

The Sphere-O-bot kit comes complete with a fully assembled and tested Devia control board with its USB interface. No soldering or programming are required.

The onboard 16× microstepping driver chips along with the 200 step/revolution stepper motors give a combined resolution of 3200 steps/revolution in both axes. A universal-input plug-in power supply is included with the EggBot kit, as is a USB cable and one Sharpie marker.

The Sphere-O-bot is normally controlled through a set of open-source extensions to Inkscape, the excellent and free vector graphics program. You can create your own drawings (Above: Wines + stars design below) or use one from the existing repository.Above: Wines + stars design

Basic operation is much like that of a printer: you import or make a drawing in Inkscape, and use the extensions to plot your drawing onto whatever object you’ve mounted in the Sphere-O-bot . It’s all handled through an easy to use graphical user interface, and works cleanly on Mac, Windows and Linux.sharpies

The pen holder included with the Sphere-O-bot kit is designed to fit various art pens including Sharpie Ultra Fine Point pens. It can actually fit almost any pen of similar size.

pen holder

You can even fit a lot of things that aren’t pens.

 

The Sphere-O-bot is an open source hardware+software project. Originally from Evil Mad Scientist (very cool robots), we have adapted the idea to our electronics and ancillary elements. Software, designs and use is exactly the same. . Extensive documentation about the original EggBot kit is available here.

 

hackeable

The Sphere-o-bot robot shares almost all of its parts and 100% of its electronics with the B-robot EVO, the fastest -remotely controlled- Self Balancing robot, the iBoardbot or any other JJrobot . Create your own B-robot after assembling the Sphere-O-bot!

Regarding logistics, from the beginning, excellent service. Quick. In the kit came all the products specified in the service. As for the assembly and start-up, very simple, clear and very detailed. The technical support has been excellent, being very fast at some point where some doubts have arisen. The incredible kit, 100% recommended. I can’t think of a better way to get into the world of arduino microcontroller programming and create something so fun at the same time. A really recommended site. They already have a 100% satisfied customer

Not a stable project

Would not recommend purchasing. This isn’t a stable project. It may work for you once or twice if you are lucky. I believe most of the problems lie in the driver board.

Hi John, we can not find any order placed under your name or with your email address. Could you please let us know what exactly the problem was?

Draw flawlessly even with golf balls

I am not in the Easter tradition, but I am running a small golf club and tagging the balls has been a very popular request since the very beginning. The sphere-o-bot makes this task fast and I have to say…fun.

Please make it 100% WIFI controllable

The robot PAINTs with accuracy (well done with the electronics and control) but… could you make it controllable via WIFI? I will give it 4 stars of 5 due the lack of WIRELESS control ;-P

It was quite simple to create the Sphere-o-bot after creating the B-robot. Just 3D print the frame, ask jjrobots for the springs and others and tadá! perfect for the Kids this Easter month
