This is a very popular category with Educators, Students and Home School Parents who participate in primary and secondary school robotics competitions. It is also very popular with young people who have purchased the LEGO Technics, Mindstorms NXT and EV3 robotics kits.

Please try our Free LEGO Technics compatible part to see if your printer is up to the task. We also recommend drilling undersized holes (see part details for hole size) to ensure a clean fit.

One member of staff has been responsible for the purchase of 20 such kits for educational use and swears by them. We respect LEGO very highly and will only make parts to fit their kits that they don’t currently produce. Most 3D printers can’t produce parts that are nearly as well made as genuine LEGO.

If you are a Student, Teacher or just a clever kid please don’t hesitate to request a part.
A GREAT international Robotics competition that allows the use of our NXT/EV3/Technics compatible parts is ROBOFEST: http://www.robofest.net/

They are not-for-profit and truly dedicated to young minds around the world!

    Cable-CAM Crawler for NXT/EV3<

    A dedicated NXT/EV3 GoPro Cable Crawling Robot. You will need to purchase some cable wheels to complete the design (STLhive parts) - or use the ones you have already. Use big wheels for flat, taught cables and small wheels for slack lines (line must be as taught as possible. Lines may sag if very long). This product in combination with your LEGO Mindstorms NXT/EV3 & GoPro can be used to time lapse or cool school shots for videos and yearbook. This design is held together with No.8 Pan-head screws. The cable should be between 1/8" and 1/4" in diameter for best results. More products will become available to be used with this design as they are requested by customers.
