J4 Timing Hub

I see this piece in the parts list, but I'm not sure if we are supposed to 3D print it or purchase it. It's hard to tell how many teeth it is from the picture. Can you share some more info on this part? The one I'm talking about is on page 9 of the Robot Arm assembly manual.

Your aluminum kit should have an aluminum version of this part. When I made the manual I didn’t have an aluminum version yet and was 3D printing the hub. Either should work fine though.

I see the part, thanks for clearing that up.

  • I read the build manual for the AR3 robot and found that during the build for the control box there is nowhere in the BOM does it mention the 5v PSU used in the build. Any specific PSU you'd recommend or any 5v PSU will work?
  • Hey Chris, is there a minimum screen resolution for ARCS? it wont dynamically adjust to my screen size that is 1366x768.
  • Hi Chris, I've purchased all the parts to upgrade my AR2 to AR3 but have run into a issue right at the start. Your AR3 Robot Manuel shows additional mounting holes for the encoders on the back of the steppers. My steppers do not have additional mounting holes in the back. I'm assuming that I need to drill/tap these myself? I don't see anywhere in the instructions where it directs me to do this... I'm also confused on the length of the shaft out the back... mine all seem short. The instructions included with the encoder are pretty basic and do not really help to solve this issue. Thanks!
