Belt Bot – Download and Make

A new paper project for you to download and make. The Beltbot uses a belt drive to move the arms rather than my usual solution of levers and linkages. I've also experimented with mixing Illustrator and Photoshop to create a textured look which I think you'll like!

Check out the blog for details of how this model was developed.
