Foldable Robot-K

AUTOBOTO

This is the 5th in a series of folding robots to prepare for 4D printing. This robot was inspired by robots in the TV series Dr. Who.
Although it is a robot, the design of the animal shape is the first to be introduced.

This is the kind of "3D Fan art". My imagination has been added so it is difficult to see the original shape before folding it.

Designed for easy folding of complex structures, this product has been designed to meet the needs of popular 4D printing in the future.
It will revolutionize 3D printing as a totally new structure robot that does not need to be supported nor assembled, just fold.
This design does not require assembly, but the head, wheels etc, can rotate at various angles, so you can play with a variety of things.

The folded part is made concave so that anyone can fold it easily.

The biggest feature of this design is that the outer shape of each parts are very complicated. Each of the previous folding robots had a straight line or circular shape, but the robot-K has a very complicated shape that folds and meets for smooth edges. This is the world's first new 3D printing structure, which opens up the possibilities of more variety of forms than previous foldable robots.

The order of folding this robot is as follows.
