We have begun physical assembly of the robot.  The directions are VERY explicit on how fragile the reduction gear is.  “REDUCTION: insert the 6002 ball bearing as indicated above. NOTE: This piece is FRAGILE, very.”  They could not be more clear.  We still managed to break it on our first attempt! 🙂  Our parts are printed in PETG on a well calibrated printer.  We are printing 2 more now and should be ready to try again in an hour.

A pair of pliers or “channellocks” as we would call them in the US made this installation VERY easy.  2nd time went much better!
