Dust off your 3D Printer because now it has a purpose. The time to change the world of robotics has begun... With EZ-Robot Revolution!

Revolution is not just a new product. It is a community of sharing, growing and learning. Most importantly, creating really awesome robotics, easily! Revolution provides an online library of 3D Printable parts (EZ-Bits), 3D EZ-Robot Designer, online storage of apps (EZ-Cloud) and brings it all together with our amazing robot control software (EZ-Builder).

Until now, the challenge with robotics has been a segmentation of hardware, software and components. EZ-Robot is the first company to successfully unite advanced robotic features, easy graphical design interface, video tutorials, reliable robot controller hardware, and now a modular platform.

Revolution is the unification of robotics!

Revolution introduces a new flexible modular platform while maintaining and supporting community creativity. This is done through a new EZ-Cloud library of 3D printable robot parts called EZ-Bits. EZ-Robot is committed to continue designing modular EZ-Bits for you to assemble beautiful and functional robotics. To support the community's creative engagement, we have integrated a 3D design feature which enables you to submit your own EZ-Bit creations.

With the support of our strong community, we will grow our library of 3D printable EZ-Bits for the world to share! Imagine the impact this moderated collection of compatible 3D printable robot parts will have on education, industry prototyping, and hobbyists.

The world is ready...

Let me be the first to introduce to you, EZ-Robot Revolution!




Project Menu
The project menu provides you with the tools to create an EZ-Robot. Add controls for custom behaviors, 3D design and 3D print your EZ-Robot parts.

Examples
Projects can be opened with the File Open menu option. Here you are presented with Revolution example robots (Hexapod codenamed Six and a Biped codenamed JD). You may also browse the subfolders to load projects which provide examples of EZ-Script syntax and functions. Many more Revolution EZ-Robot examples to come!

Revolution Projects
A robot designed with Revolution EZ-Bits will require the files to be cached on your computer. If the files are missing from your local library, you will be prompted to start the sync utility to download the missing files. The project will not open unless the EZ-Bit cache files have been downloaded.

Downloading EZ-Bit Library
The EZ-Bit Library Sync utility will synchronize your local library with files from the server. Pressing the Sync Now button will begin the process. EZ-Bit cache files range in size from 200K to 3MB, which means the process time depends on your internet connection speed.

Assembly Tutorial Prompt
When opening a Revolution EZ-Robot, an instructional tutorial prompt is presented to you. By selecting to view the assembly instructions, you will be presented with a 3D step-by-step animation of assembling your robot. You can follow along with each step while you are presented with details, such as EZ-B connections. You can view the assembly instructions at anytime by selecting Instructions from the Project section of the EZ-Builder menu.

3D Animated Assembly Instructions
By choosing to view the assembly instructions, you will be presented with a new window. In this window, you are given control to browse through steps of the EZ-Bits with detailed instructions. The instructions tell and show you where to connect the EZ-Bit and what ports to use on the EZ-B.

EZ-Robot 3D View
Once in the project, the EZ-Robot control gives you a 3D view of your robot. In this example, the AutoPosition control comes in handy to create GAITs and movements for your robot.

EZ-Robot 3D Design
When it's time to create your first EZ-Robot, the 3D Design mode makes it easy! Use EZ-Bits from the library to build your robot. Each EZ-Bit will have a property tab which allows you to specify a friendly name and EZ-B connections. This information will be used throughout your robot configuration and to generate the auto assembly instructions.

EZ-Bit Designer
Adventurous robot designers can create custom EZ-Bits. By importing the STL files generated in your favorite 3D design software, you can assemble all the parts into one EZ-Bit. Each STL file is saved within the EZ-Bit and can be used for 3D printing.

EZ-Bit Profile
Before saving your EZ-Bit, you are prompted to complete a simple form. Give your EZ-Bit a title, detailed description, and 3D printer settings. This information will help you and others around the world 3D print and use your contribution with their EZ-Robot!

3D Printing and Community 3D Printing
The information button on each EZ-Bit will provide you with access to the raw printing files. From here, you can launch your favorite 3D printing software to bring the EZ-Bit into physical reality. For those without a 3D Printer, the Community Print option will come in handy! Coming soon, the EZ-Robot Community Print Network will help you locate someone to 3D print the parts for you. Additionally, a selection of EZ-Bits will be available for purchase in the store.

It's far from the finished piece, it's for Jarvis' chest, see my Jarvis showcase:) It doesn't really work... And since it's not got, nor will have the correct clip I wont be able to share it... but considering it was just a quick mess around to get me back in to 3D I'm sure I will be knocking out more and more cool little EZ-Bits:D
