Meet Snoopy the pet robot!

Meet Snoopy the pet robot!

Meet Snoopy, an open-source pet robot! Snoopy is a 300mm, round-base, mid-size DIY 3D-printable indoor pet robot compatible with software platform.

Snoopy was designed in Fusion 360 in 05/2023 and printed using a Voron 2.4r2 350mm.

Once finished, Snoopy will act as a pet - look cute, play ball, hide-and-seek and chase, demand its owners’ attention and greet its owners happily at the door. To get a feel of what Maker’s Pet robots will do, watch Snoopy (in a simulation)

Utility functions will include patrolling the house.
