Robogami
is a MIT CSAIL project, this project is DIY for Robotics, and it will let you
model and 3-D print “origami-inspired robots” using corresponding 2-D
designs.

Robogami

With surge in technological advances and thirst for knowledge among common individuals,
the temperament for engineering and creative technical DIY projects has also
raised.

Making Robots is no joke, conventional Robotics involve high level of technical
exposure, even school level project will require knowledge of electronic
components and soldering, unless you are making one by following a walk-through tutorial. Robogami makes it easier to modal and create robots.


MIT
CSAIL’s Robogami project is a Software-Hardware Suit which lets you design and
make your own Robots. The size of robots is however small as the project is in its
infancy but sheer simplicity of the concept opens gates of Robotics to common
people. 
There
are four parts to this project, Designing, Modeling, Fabrication, and Testing. The
designing and modeling parts are software oriented, you can make your design
using drag and drop elements provided in the software, give them shape you want
which is called Geometry in Robogami, then you can assemble them together and
perform the movements or “Gait” you want, see if they work in the
software, it really just takes minutes in software to make a model once you
think it in your mind. After modeling you can print the parts using 3-D
printer. You will get parts as 3-D printer output and you have to assemble them
using the hinges, and leverages provided in the printed output.

Robogami Process
Robogami
Simulation and Designing software uses simulations and interactive feedback
mechanisms allows user to design and develop a working model for Robot.
Robogami
is inspired from Origami, an Arts and Crafts technique in which beautiful
designs are crafted using folding paper only. Robogami inspired ā€œ3-D print and
foldā€ technique in which the designs are printed as flat faces connected at
joints, and then folding the design into the final shape.



Robogami is still work in progress, there are many improvements to come and hopefully guys at CSAI will make this tech available as open source.
