I was scanned at a Maker Faire and sent the .stl of my head and torso and I have been looking for just the right robot body to attach the bottom of the model.  A quick search on 123D revealed an Adabot – sooooo cute…. I remember a time that I would have seen a character like Adabot and wonder where I could get one?  In the 80’s and most of the 90’s I would have wondered what box store or mega distributor would be making this cute figure available – would Toyz R Us or HMV distribute? oh … the days of Analog shopping….  moving through time to the first decade of the millenia, I would have used a search engine, maybe even got all crafty with boolean in Alta Vista :

“Adabot” AND “toy” AND “Robot” AND (“sale” OR “for sale”) AND “Canada”   –

Fast forward to present day, at the same instant when I fell in love with Adabot, I also had immediate access to ALL of the .stl files for each of her components – for free.  Head, legs (which I will probably use), body and even the ears all have their own .stl – many thanks to Adafruit for their commitment to sharing.

Not the best car scan

Latest is meshing experiments – after I attach my Adabot body, I will print as Christmas presents:)
