Does anyone know if the SDK of the Oculus Rift package would work with EZB if there was a plug in developed for it? It doesn't really need to be something as big and bulky as that. Very unfortunate that Vuzix is no longer offering support with EZB. That would work great.
Like the Vuzix, I'd like to pull from the IMU data to move servos and transfer the camera feed from the EZ camera to the goggles over two complete separate computers in different places.
Any ideas or suggestions on how to POC this, would be grateful.
Upgrade to ARC Pro
Synthiam ARC Pro is a cool new tool that will help unleash your creativity with programming robots in just seconds!
Great model! I cannot wait to see it in action!
Is there an enclosure for the EZ-B in the back of its body?
Are you developing new servo brackets ?
I'm thinking that a simple plug in that records the animation data and plays it back seems like the most likely (easier?) way to demonstrate Unity and ARC working together-ish. I don't think for this demonstration that it is important to have a "live" connection. But this could be a great demonstration for recording and playback.
@ptp, is this something that is possible? Does anyone know if a CSV file is the best way to go? Then create a plug in in ARC that reads the recorded data?
I started printing my robot parts in PLA and experienced, that during time the shoulders started deforming from the weight...so I switched to ABS. Which in turn is not the most forgiving material to print, warping is a big issue. The Prusa Printer has no enclosure, which does not make life easier!
I heart that Polymaker PC-Max should be one of the strongest filaments out there, but it is quiet pricey!
Getting the rotational values formatted into XML or CSV should not be a problem!
Once you get it all set up, a test to check if live playback out of Unity works would be fun too!
If you ever have any time to do a tutorial, you workflow from Zbrush to printing would still interest me a lot...how do you get the exact measures for your servo brackets in Zbrush...it is so hard to do correctly scaled geometric things build within Zbrush...and then having them printed out correctly!
I could never figure out how to do this!
Yes, I'm up for any test once it gets finished. And XML/CSV outta Unity/ez builde will be much appreciated!
@nallycat Yes I've use PETG for the past two years and it is very strong. But I've not tried MG Chemicals...now I gotta look! I've used eSun and it has not jammed on me or delaminated etc. Stuff is super strong and affordable. Only problems might arise would be from poor design work or servos not being able to handle the weight. LOL.
Here are a couple progress shots unsanded right off the machines.
Btw...what are those metal things near the servos, bearings?
I will check those parts, they look strong and helpfull for building!
