Ez-Bit Heavy Duty Servo Does Not Fit Kit Servo

Hello, I just printed the EZ-Bit Heavy Duty Servo 90degrees. Then I tried fitting it to the EZ-Robot servos that came with the kit and it does not fit. I was under the impression since there where no EZ-Bit brackets for the standard servo that this EZ-Bit would fit. Are the dimensions of the heavy duty servo different from the kit servo? If so then...

Does The Irobot Create Work As A Supported Platform?

Hello, I was wondering if it was possible to hook up the EZ-B to the iRobot Create? It is basically like the Roomba but without the Vacuum cleaner and it is cheaper, only $130, and it seems like a good wheeled base for a robot. It also has a bunch of sensors built in which would be cool to control from EZ-Builder. Would it hookup the same way as...

2D Environmental Array

Hello All I just saw this video of the autonomous wall-e robot. DJs Autonomous Wall-E In the video DJ specifies that he used a 2D environmental array so the robot would know of it's position. This video was done before EZ-Builder so I was wondering if there was such a feature in EZ-Builder? Is this 2D Array just the floor map feature?

Servo Sliders

Hello, I am having a very frustrating problem with the Horizontal and Vertical Sliders in EZ-Builder. I think the GUI update for the Servo control is a bad update, and the sliders that use to be there are much better. What is happening is when I click and drag to change the servo position value, when I let go the number in the box jumps to another...

Wireless Camera Not Working

Hello, My wireless camera was working for the past 2 days since I got the kit and now all that shows up is black. It says it is connected but no image shows on the screen.

Ez-Builder And Autonomous Robots

Hello All! I recently ordered my EZ-B Complete Kit and can't wait to receive it. One of my main interests is writing various programs for the robot so it can act on it's own (autonomous) without me having to control it's every move. I just want a clarification on how you do this with EZ-Builder? Is this done with scripts? Something like this:...

Camera Tracking Question

Hello, I am having an issue with the Camera tracking. The x axis tracking works correctly but the y axis is reversed. When tracking a color and the color moves down the camera head moves up. In the settings though when I click inverse direction for the y axis, it causes the servo to go haywire, literally just jumps all over the place. Any idea?
