We have been looking for a project to offer in our city's summer program for kids and came across Otto DIY which looked just right. Although our hacker space has two 3D printers printing like 20 of the chassis was not something we were looking forward to. So the question was if the same can be achieved with our laser cutter. Turns out Otto is basically made out of 3 boxes. So...

Isn't he cute? How he looks a little bit insecure wondering about his future...

Yes, of course it can move. Right now the servos are directly pressed into the wood. That won't work with acrylic. But I might add a variant that uses servo horns for attaching the moving parts.

We assemble the bot without glue as a press fit. That works fine with wood but acrylic needs glue as it is too brittle to be squeezed.

  Are you sure? yes | no
