Was shielding taken into consideration when designing this? Does this thing lose steps?


Awesome robot by the way! And everything else that you made with it, .pdfs etc, obviously very meticulously constructed!

I previously had in frequent issues when using the analog drivers. But now using the DM 542 digital drivers I have had zero problems with losing steps. The Arduino is mounted inside the enclosure in close proximity to the drivers And I haven’t had any problem.

  • 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!
