    3D Print Your Own Mars Curiosity Rover

    Josef Vladik of the Czech Republic has given us a Mars Rover on the smaller scale, thanks to 3D printing and Arduino software, which drive the impressive and powerful vehicle which can scale mountains of books and traverse your home, persisting in handling challenging ‘terrain’ with its eight wheels that demonstrate impressive and precise locomotion. The rover was 3D printed on a RepRap Rebel 2 using PLA. Read more about it: http://3dprint.com/47745/3d-printed-mars-rover/


    Below is a photo of Vladik's 3D printed Mars Rover. Let us know if you have decided to 3D print your own Mars Curiosity rover. Post pictures and feedback below:

    NASA has a bunch of 3D models for free on their site. Some aren't ready for 3D printing but some are. Cool stuff.

    Vladik's rover looks like fun project, but i can't find an Arduino sketch (program) for this anywhere. Could be because his "notes" page is in Czech, which Google translate seems to choke on.

    Not surprising really, it's a very "guttural" language.
