Step One Of Assembly Instructions For Jd Robot

I have finished assembling my jd robot, but still am not sure where the two shoulder
servos listed in instruction number one are to be located or if they are even
needed. All pictures of jd that I have seen do not seem to show them.

I think you need to update your ARC software.

There is a long thread mentioning these two ports. let me see if I can dig it up.

Holz, download the latest ARC

There will be a JD assembly video released soon - that will assist with the building instructions:)

In the meantime, when you connect the two shoulder servos, the wires come out of the body. Turn on the EZ-B when you connect the servos to see which servo moves - that way you know what is LEFT or RIGHT.

Remember, it's his LEFT and his RIGHT when you see references to those directions.

Thanks to DJ Sures for resolving my problem. After I made the post I re-read
instruction number one and it did state that this box not only housed the battery
and microprocessor, etc. but also two INTERNAL SERVOS. Then this all made
sense.

Thanks also to D. Cochran for sending me a reply.

There are no pictures of the inside of the body. Please do not take the body apart.

When you connect a servo to the ezb, it will move briefly. That is how you can tell what servo the shoulder is.

If you need me to make a quick video, let me know.

Maybe you don't understand i did not take body appart. I 3d print it from thingiverse. and i bought your EZ-Robot developer kit and pay a lot of money for it in South Africa. So i must put it together. So how do i built it with no inside instrucktion. Must i cut servo hinge one side off to fit inside.

Ah you found it on thingiverse? That's great! I was wondering who would be the first to print a JD from there. That might have been you. Really nice work on your poppy mix - I recall replying to one of your messages online. The poppy with the skull is very terminator-like!

@AdolphSmith, I've been following your work on another forum. I think you're really going to like the EZ Robot system.

I believe you have the servos connected in reverse. Simply swap the two cables to the ez-b and you're good:)
