This planetary gearbox has been designed to reduce the backlash and hysteresis but at the same time to be easily printed and assemble. Three “planets” and the “sun” are contained inside a 60 teeth corona providing a 1:5 reduction. It has been proved that the 1:5 ratio has a very … Read More
We always though that a powerful, reliable, precise and fast laser pointer would be a cool gadget to have. And when I say “laser”, I mean any object you may want to attach to X-Y mount (nerf gun? Torch? Camera? … Read More
The original Camera Slider kit became quite popular since the very beginning. It was easy to set up, used regular NEMA17 stepper motors and it was reliable. But lacked of some important features: I was heavy, bulky and not as … Read More
From time to time, we see cool modifications and add-ons for the B-robot EVO 2: custom arms, new uses for a second servo output, new Arduino codes…etc. These two, listed below, add something new to the B-robot “World”: Led eyes! … Read More
We are declared fans the MAKE: magazine since its very beginning. The quality of their issues and attention to details explaining projects make them affordable to everyone interested in the MAKER World / Robotics + Electronics The review of the … Read More
This is a side project, a rotating display created from the CAMERA SLIDER WITH OBJECT TRACKING project. It is a quite straightforward “robot” to do, as every element has been used with the CAMERA SLIDER. But they are some minor … Read More
We are currently working (while we finish the control APPs of the blimpduino) in the SCARA robotic arm. The point of posting this on the web is to ask you for comments/ideas and any feedback. As we are still at this developing stage, we have time to re-think some aspects/features of this robot. A powerful, fast and reliable arm is the basic of modern robotics so… we wanted to “create” one but using regular “MAKER´s World” elements like NEMA17 motors, affordable electronics and common ancillary elements (GT2 timing belt, steel rod, aluminium tubes).
