MURCS - Sneak Preview
May 30, 2013
this is MURCS - Multi Use Robot Construction System. My first self design chassis using laser cutted parts. Today the parts arrived and I have quickly assembled them for a foto shooting.
The neon green chassis looks great.
The design was made with SketchUp, my favorite tool for 3D design. This is a early design using a second platform.
For the laser cutting layout I use Inkscape. Export from SketchUp into SVG has been done with SVG Outline Plugin. All Parts fit on a single plate of 181x181mm, 3mm acrylic.
A second plate is available for expansions. and a 3rd plate with wheeel encoders (0,8mm PP).
This robot will be shown at Maker Faire Hannover in August.
