Your EdVenture into Robotics

You’re a Builder

A Lego printer and digger made with robots




EdBook3 ‘You’re a builder’ follows on from EdBook1 and EdBook2, teaching you to build larger robots using LEGO bricks with the LEGO Compact Tracked Loader set.

Edison works with LEGO bricks

The Edison robot is compatible with LEGO bricks. LEGO bricks can be attached to the top and bottom of the Edison robot and LEGO pegs can be attached on the sides.

EdVenture 1 – The EdDigger

In this EdVenture we turn Edison into a robot digger: The EdDigger! The EdDigger is a remote control digger made from LEGO bricks that uses two Edisons and LEGO set 42032.


In this EdVenture we program the EdDigger, by programming our two Edisons before building the rest of the EdDigger. Don’t forget the TV remote.

Build Instructions

learn how to transform Edison into the brick scooping EdDigger! Simply follow the instructions.

EdVenture 2 – The EdPrinter 

The EdPrinter is a simple printer made from LEGO bricks that can draw shapes on A5 (5.8in x 8.3in) size paper. The printer uses two Edisons connected with LEGO bricks. 

Build Instructions

It’s time to build the EdPrinter! The EdPrinter is an advanced project and requires a high level of LEGO building skills.


Two printer programs are used to get the EdPrinter to move both the pen arm and the paper. One program sends data to the other while the second enters a loop and waits for the data. 

Print your own shapes

Printing with the EdPrinter is all about programming. This page shows the basic programming structures needed to print vertical and horizontal lines. which you can use to create your own shapes.

Heads up

The Australian Federal Parliament has passed a law that extends goods and services tax (GST) to low value imports of physical goods imported by consumers from 1 July 2018.

This means that all customers purchasing Edison robots and accessories with an Australian shipping address must now pay GST. The GST will be automatically added to your purchase and show as a line item on your invoice.

We've detected that you are in Australia, so we wanted to let you know that we have changed your settings to view our Australian site, which displays GST inclusive pricing.
