Good day to everyone. I am new to this site with just having heard about Ez-Robots from my wife who saw it on a TV show.
I am 45 years old, and do electronics, Repair/Restore/Make Parts for Classic Arcade Games and always wanted to explore more into robotics. Having made my own really basic and kinda crappy RC ones from old RC Vehicles I salvaged, when I was younger.
What I really liked about the JD was its simple to assemble, easy to program and get up and going. I just have no time to learn programing languages etc right now, other then basic stuff, so these robots look amazing to me.
I do have a few questions I hope I can have some help with, sorry for the newbie questions..
1) I plan to get the JD Humanoid robot with the 4n1 Orientation sensor soon. But was thinking having a different colored robot would be even more awesome. So do you think that buying something like Developer kit and anything else needed and having 3d printed parts made in the color/colors I would like? Or would it be better in the end to just buy the complete kit and play with it, with later on printing different colored/Modified parts?
That question being both $$$ wise and just easier in General to get the kit or parts and 3d print what I want in the colors I want.
2) Something I was wondering is if I say had the head printed in Black, would the lights in the eyes still work? I am thinking not because it would be a dark plastic. Any way around that, that anyone has tried?
3) I saw in the CAD files there was servo case files but they were not linked. Does this mean you can print new cases for the servos?
I thank you in advance for any advice, ideas, suggestions.
Thank you Kindly
Upgrade to ARC Pro
Synthiam ARC Pro is a cool new tool that will help unleash your creativity with programming robots in just seconds!
You can paint your robot, I guess - if you want a different color
Maybe use a Plastidip - because it can be peeled away and change the robot color daily or weekly lol
I really like the plastic dipped idea, I will have to try that maybe.
Looks like its the complete kit after all.
Thanks so much.
Here's photos of the quality difference between injection molded and 3d printed...
Just will concentrate on getting my JD and having fun. LOL
Thanks so much for all the help.
here a tip ,order your jd separt from the sensor cause they are pre-order.
and here a nice video for you to injoy.
Nomad, thank you for that tip. I just noticed that it was pre-order after you mentioned that. That sure is a must get item I am thinking.
Awesome video, thank you! The tracking of that duck is amazing. These units are simply amazing! I love all that you can do without being a programmer, and if your a programmer you can even go farther.
Super Excited, just have to finish putting together the $$
Thanks so much guys,
That sensor looks like a pretty awesome add on. Nice how simple changes are with these guys. I downloaded the software and was playing a little. I like how everything works so well together and how newbie like me can get using it right away.
here's the video off the sensor.
Thanks so much for sharing that.
