The Hexapod Robot CNC Router is a 3-D Sculpting Machine!

This DIY project from Matt Denton is a six-legged robot that’s able to crawl onto a malleable surface and begin cutting images into it. Though the original design called for a basic pen for drawing, the robot’s now equipped with a cutting tool able to mill three-dimensional surfaces into high density foam.  It takes nearly 30 minutes to complete the sculpting and for not bolting down the work surface, I’d say the robot is damn accurate.

No way in hell would I ever want to go up against an army of these drilling machines, though. I’ll take my chances with Lisa.

  1. Hi,
    Terrific video! Fantastic machine. How does one build one of these intelligent routers? I would appreciate any information that you can share about 3D sculpting.
    Cordially,
