I'm a natural born nerd from Ohio. My love for Transformers led me to robotics and EZ-Robot. I enjoy problem solving, learning new things, and trying to help others by sharing those experiences. My core skills include programming and an aptitude toward learning. I also seem to have a hobby of collecting hobbies. A man of many talents. Master of few. ;)

Store Credit

All of the EZ-Robot purchases made for my were by my GF who set up an account to order my Roli kit last Christmas. So, I've had no transactions with this account. I was on the shop page the other day and notice I have some store credit. :) I'm just wondering how and how long I have to use it? Thanks :)

Micro Servo

Hey guys, Does anyone know what brand the new Micro Servo that comes with the grippers is? I seized one up (or burnt it out) and need to get another one. I'm just assuming the international shipping would be pricey so I'd like to find a substitute with the same dimmentions. I did some looking on ebay and couldn't find one that matched the...

Possible Feature Request

Hi EZ-Robot, I was wondering if you've plans to add an SayEZB control similar to the current Speech Synthesis control? I know you can make the V4 speak using the SayEZB command but it would be nice to be able to just type messages on the fly in the simple interface. I know you did something similar with the Sound Board control. I was just wondering...

Balance Charger Question

Hey all. The green light on my balance charger is always on. I thought that it should be off when not connected to a battery. It seems to charge my battery but I unplug it after a few hours because I'm not positive the green light will go off when it should. Anyone have any info on this? Is my charger possibly bad or is it not really a big deal?...

Hey guys, I haven't been super active in the forums lately so I wanted to say hello to the fantastic EZ community. There have been a lot of good threads with tons of information.

Ez-Bit Connector Stl Not Printable?

Hi EZ-Robot. I'm not sure if this is a bug or not but, I'm milking all of the STL files from EZ Builder and I notice the EZ-Bit connector for the Rotational Servo is marked not printable. It is also not available to download from the website either. This used to be and, I feel, should be a printable part. Was this intentional or just a woopsie ;)...
question

Ez-Bit Feature Requests.

Hey EZ-Robot. It would be great if we could edit the EZ-Bits we create. Example, I didn't proof read my description so I had to re-create the EZ-Bit. So now I have 2 uploaded to my library and one I no longer need. And while I can delete it from my local library, it's still in my "on-line" library. Which brings me to request #2. It would be nice if...

the new video wont play on you tube due to copyrighted music by an emi artist :( Moby's album "Play" was released under public domain so if you're ever in need of some decent free music you can always use one of those songs. Not to plug Moby but it is just something I know from my advertising days.

Mobile App Connection-Project Storage Question

Once a project has been downloaded to your device, do you need the internet connection anymore?

Ez-Bit, Stl Question(S)

Hey guys, This may be a dumb question but, I just discovered that there are 2, 3d printing companies in my town. One is a solidworks that is 10-15 minutes from my house. I may pop by there and get some pricing info. So my question is, If I save the ez-bit stls from ez-builder, are those files "good to go"? Would I be able to take the servo and...

Ir Question

In the Robosapien video. Starting at 4:12, DJ says he records the commands from the remote and reproduces them. Are those simply PMW patterns? And if they are how would one reproduce them?

Question On Weight Distribution.

Is it better to put the weight on top of the servos or for the servos to pull the weight? I found a good size piece of Styrofoam I'm going to use to make a new bot.

Importing Stl Question(S)

Hey guys, I made a version of the zune box I'm using for my robot in sketup and exported it to stl. When I import it it seems super small or incredibly zoomed away. It twice as wide and about 2.5 times as long as a servo so why does it seem small? Is it just the default camera angel. I designed it by measurements. Sketchup is pretty cool btw, once...

A Couple Of Things.

Not major things. One's more of a question. On the JD project, the info for 0 degree heavy servo (0dhs), it says "positioned 'for' 0 degrees for display." Is that termed properly?
