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
