Whats up the Generals Sleevy ?
His Army of course.......
Robot arm is build ... works better than calculated.... just one more bit to print to connect it to the S2 unit.
Printed a new "Mini Skirt" with cradle for Servo.... so its now mobile... I have connected a Mouse which makes it easy to test all movement possibilities :-
Does the rear end need counter-weighting now? That is a beautiful add-on. Without a doubt you have the world's most beautiful Scribbler!
As it happens the Arm is pushing down on the S2s "Bogie" wheel at the back....
The mouse attachment makes it a dream to control ....sooooo easy.
Indeed the "Mini Skirts" will turn some eyes.....
That bot is looking amazing, G. Can't wait to get a closer look at the way you did the joint in the backside of those servos. I've been working on a system to use in joints like that, but so far my efforts have left me with more play than I was aiming for. I'm using an m3 bolt going into a 3x3x8mm ball bearing, and it can definately be improved upon.
I like the large surface area connecting the two pieces. It looks like yours would be a lot stiffer when side-to-side strain is on the joint.
Can't wait to see more!
Indeed a lot hangs on the orientation of the printed part....
The Mini skirt is 1cm thick and i have integrated the servo cradle with a 1cm X 2.5cm surface area, this appears to work well.
I will be making many tweaks to support the Servos structurally, after all they are only 9gramme servos so they cant really be pushed. One plan is to draw with a light weight UV_laser on a vertical plane (which is a change for me)
