I thought I would start a new page. I would like to completely delete the old stuff. I will have pictures soon. They are already taken. I have had my struggles, so i named her Botchy instead of Sunshine.
Here are some pix:
Thanks for your support!
That is what I have so far.
Upgrade to ARC Pro
ARC Early Access will give you immediate updates and new features needed to unleash your robot's potential!
If you stop building I hope you don't stop visiting this forum. It's nice having you around.
On the arms (for the shoulders) would it be of help if I sent you some of the amazing Bosh servo motors with feedback potentiometer? These are very powerful motors and easy to fix, have a look at the latest pictures that I have put on the AIMEC thread. You would need an H bridge (I have a spare double H bridge) that are you are also welcomed to and you could control the shoulder position by monitoring the pot with an Analogue port on the EZ-B. I do not want any payment for these parts as I am happy to be able to help another serious long term robot builder.
If I had to do it over, I would have followed Matt's build. It was simple. Too late, because I have already broken the pieces inside to the arms for this build. I am NOT blaming Mr. A. he told us in the video not to get in a hurry.
This is the first time that I have built something that did not work. Thanks for Caring. I LOVE you guys!
Hang in there. There is nothing wrong with re-doing and making improvements.
Sometimes my efforts pay off, and sometimes not. Maybe there are things you can simplify on your robot?
Days when I don't feel liking building, I enjoy programming new routines, exploring different features on EZB, or just operating my robot.
Your improvements will eventually work out.
Right Now, botchy is completely and totally taken appart. The only thing that I have finished is the Eyes. I am going to totally rebuild her. But, I am not sure of the design because the other design did not work very well. But, I will continue to work on her as I can afford to buy new parts. Last night , the dumpster was looking Pretty Good, but it was closed and locked for the evening. So, botchy had her stay of execution. This morning, there was a lot of support coming in that boosted my spirits and I feel like it is going to be "ok".
Thanks for your support! When I start to feel bad and beatin, I will come back here and read these wonderful posts and it will encourage me to go forward.
Thats good, do a little @ a time.
Keep it basic, not too fancy.
You will make progress.
I have always liked your projects and respect you.
Wish me luck.
Nice progress! I'm glad things are going better for you and your little gal.
Thanks for your support!
sorry for lack of updates. . . . . . . . .
