SOLIDWORKS Entrepreneur: Robotical – Learning Robotics Made Easy

Marty Programming

Marty by Robotical  is a little walking robot designed to be an easy to use and friendly introduction to the world of robotics, as well as a great platform for makers and educators. WiFi enabled, programmable in commonly used languages including Scratch and Python, and even can be customized with 3D printed parts.

Marty provides an engaging way to get into engineering and programming. Developed by Alexander Enoch as a side project during his PhD, Marty has a unique leg design which reduces the number of motors required to make a robot that can walk, turn, dance, and even kick a ball.

The Field with Marty and Robotics

This makes Marty lower cost, easier to use, and his battery last longer. He’s also got an expressive face thanks to his moving eyebrows!


Alexander used SOLIDWORKS during his Masters at Heriot-Watt University, and then extensively throughout his PhD at the University of Edinburgh.  While preforming research in designing and building walking robots, Alexander began developing Marty for his nieces and nephews.

You can find out more about Robotical, Marty, and Alexander here.  Marty has just launched a Indiegogo campaign.

Robotical is part of the SOLIDWORKS Entrepreneur program.  Marie
