ESA’s Planetary Robotics Laboratory designed a mini version of the ExoMars rover The smaller version, ExoMy, can be built by anyone with a 3D printer ExoMy’s design has all the key features of the ExoMars rover and includes a customizable face A six-wheeled rover designed by the European Space Agency’s Planetary Robotics Laboratory is a mini version of the agency’s Rosalind Franklin ExoMars.
For €500 ($598) or less, space geeks, or just about anyone, with a 3D printer can build their own ExoMy, the younger and smaller sibling of the real Mars rover, thanks to the Laboratory . 3D printing the ExoMy’s blueprint allows students and enthusiasts to teach themselves robotics. The result reproduces ExoMars’ “triple-bogie” wheel design, which enables it to conquer bumpy obstacles in its way — while keeping all of its wheels on the ground. “Anyone with a 3D printer can build their own ExoMy, at […]
