The tin can based R2D2 robot driving around, remote controlled through tablet using Bluetooth: The sound in the video is pretty poor. But what you here so far is a typical R2D2 beep-beep on start-up (or when you request it by remote command), an other beep when a new command was received, some sad „ohhhh“ […]
Today I think I 3D printed my first real useful thing. This „thing“ sits on the bottom border of our windows and helps keeping them pack (against cold air). Unfortunately I don’t know the name of this thing, so I decided to call it the „window thing“. One of our windows was missing the „window […]
All parts are printed! Now everything is ready for a first assembly. But first the electronic components need some wiring: The full BOM for the electronics looks like so: 1 x Parallax Propeller QuickStart Board 2 x gear motor 2 x wheels for gear motor 1 x Pololu 3.3V Step-Up/Down regulator to supply the Propeller […]
Finally the inlay which will hold the batteries and the Parallax Propeller.
And here comes the dome with its top cover. Unfortunately the hole for the Maxbotix ultrasonic sensor is too small (for some reason I used a wrong number for the radius).
Also the first leg is already printed (the second one is printing right now). And phew, the motors fit perfectly :-).
And the bottom base 3D print:
I 3D printed the first parts for the ronot – the front wheel and it’s left and right arm.
I decided to slightly change plans for the tin can robot. Since I bought a 3D printer lately, it now totally makes sense to print out all the additional parts around the can (instead of poorly handcraft them from whatever). Thus, I started designing all stuff I like to print within OpenSCAD. Below you could […]
