PlenZA – Our own PLEN Fork

So we are big fans of the Plen robot. Unfortunately the motors used in the original Plen are hard to find and/or expensive. We decided to create our own version of the Plen called the PlenZA. It’s essentially the original plen, but modified for different cheaper 9g motors that are very much everywhere, especially in SA.

Andries Smuts, one of our BinarySpace members have modified the original files and we have been printing and testing.

We also have some quick videos of the first movements:

All the mechanical files can be found on our github repository.
We are currently looking at the original electronics, but we are also keen on designing our own.

Stay tuned for more updates 🙂
