Wild Thumper as a LINE CUTTER robot. Who wants to build it?
May 10, 2013
Hello you robot builders,
Due to lack of time (and experience) I would like to find someone, who wants to help 'build' my robot.
I bought the wild thumper + the mainboard WTR-CK1.
What do I want:
The robot will be placed on a table that has a 'printed banner' on it. The banner has a 'black-white-black' stripe on the side
where it needs to be cut. The robot has to 'drive' along the line and pushes down a 'knife' while driving.
When it gets to the end of the marker, the robot has to make a 90 degree turn, adjust to the next 'line' and continue
its cutting. This has to be repeated until the banner is cut (4 lines, 4 sides).
In the picture, you see an example of what we might be able to print.
The 'cutter' is a very easy 'autorotating' knife, that has to be pushed down with an electro magnet.
If the robot produces a 5 volt signal at te time of cutting, I will get the knife myself.
Of course, the knife will be a little bit 'behind' the sensor, so it needs to 'start' cutting with a delay.
We are situated in the Netherlands.
I'm serious about this project, so please react if you think you can help me build this!!!
Of course this has not to be done for free ;-) We will discuss costs and I'll pay them using PayPal.
