Let's Make Robots!


KellerRobotics and its progress

Well I've been working http://kellerrobotics.com, the website for my business KellerRobotics since August or so, and I finally have the first printer of the fleat of printers which is a RepRap Prusa Mendel i2. I ordered a new hot end and it should be here early next month. I was a little bored tonight so I downloaded Blender since its one of the few full-feature and free 3d modeling programs available and its not that bad of a learning curve, Had a pretty decent wolf head made within a half hour of downloading the program.

Control Blender3D objects remotely

I just made a very simple example using Zeroc's Ice which illustrates how to control Blender objects remotely using Ice. Since Blender can run Python scripts, the idea is to write Ice server which can modify certain object properties (for example location). Corresponding client application can remotely invoke server methods and control objects remotely. Sources are available on GitHub. The first video illustrates how it works.
