  • Status: Closed

  • Entries Received: 20

Contest Brief

We're building a robotic ornithopter that will be modeled after Bubo - the robotic owl from Clash of the Titans. We're utilizing the frame of [login to view URL] along with [login to view URL] servo motors for the flight movement.

We'll be 3D Printing the design in LayFomm or an AeroGel filament to minimize weight from the layering process in our Dallas, TX lab.

Following printing, the pars will be airbrushed to achieve the metallic effect. Feathering pattern and close attention to the clockwork mechanism in the schema will be required.

    Hi CH, if you can #extend for a few days, I'm sure you can get designs worth your money. There are many designer who will design for that amount including me. Thanks.

    HI CH, what is the size of the ornithopter you intend to make i.e. the body length, from there I can extrapolate the rest. What is the wingspan.Do you need STL file afterward or others format. I Just stumbled your contest and need time to model your 3D printable file. Thanks.

      Hey Tariq - thank you for the heads up! I will be vetting designs for both originality and mechanical functionality. Very much appreciated!

      Again Tariq I didnt create bubo the owl, my entry obviously based on reference picture provided by contest holder. I do not take any responsibility for possible copyright issues. But I think contest holder already aware of that. If he required us to make it look even a little bit like bubo the owl.

    Do you need only cover details of this robotic owl?
    Or also you want us to design working mechanism inside?

      We expect a little back and forth after the Contest ends (with additional payment for that time) as we work on the aerodynamics and weight calculations of adding 3D printed parts to the RoboBird Kit. For right now, it's safe to assume that the parts must "interlock" together while allowing range of movement. Additionally, modifications to attach the model to the frame will be done after the Contest. See the mostly recently uploaded image for reference.
