Robot Ideas

hi all, i have a few upcoming ideas for the revolution (2 new robots to make), but there are a few problems: what are the measurements of the ez-bit connectors, also my google sketchup skills are next to nothing..

but i want to share my designs here~

note that these need to have quite some code to let it move (all the 8 legs, can be even hard with relaive servo)

they are both based on a 8-legged body,
and 'scorpio' uses all the 20 digital ports in order to function properly (20 servos)
while 'spidey' only uses 17 digital ports (17 servos, leaving room for some sensors on one ez-b)

adviceable is to use a servo i2c for both projects and 2-3 lipo battery packs for power (because power consumption), and maybe even a seperate power supply (like a 1083-5 (7,5A 5V) regulator)

so i hand you all the skp file in the zip, and hopefully someone manages to design it like it should:)

The new ez-b v4 has 24 ports that run on the same voltage as the battery so using a 7.4v battery out of the shop, you can plug all the servos right onto the ez-b, if there heavy duty.

I really like scorpio. Plus because there's 4 unused ports people could expand on this.
Try building this in the design control in ARC.

i totally forgot the ezb V4 had more digital portsXD

also: i can't make this in the design control because of the base for 8 legs isn't in it and i don't know how to export it to a stl file... :c

Clip and play servo-

.Width: 2cm
.Length: 6 cm
.Height: 5 cm
.Weight: 0.066 kg

If you mean the ez-male and female connectors I'm not sure.

Very cool , I'm sure lots of kids out there would love to have a robo Scorpio !

yeah, i mean the clip connectors, i ouldn't find it on this site or anywhere else~

@cosplaybunny , download a couple ezbit servo examples from the library then import them into your 3d designer. You should be able to reference those by measuring them to make sure your clips are exactly the same.:)

Ah , try Autodesks 123d , it's descent and free and see if can load a outside object from ezbit

never worked with any autodesk software before.. if it's like blender or so, then i need someone else to do it for me, since i can't use stuff that advanced~ ^^;

I'm a complete newbie with 3d design but I was able to make some basic things following their video tutorials.
