Hi all, here are my first steps to the robot costruction. I am also a mechanical hobbyst so I will realize all the alluminium parts. Thank you Chris for your great job.
Great build - thanks for sharing, I too am building the robot in aluminum and my setups and fixture are very different - I learned a lot from your experience.
Thank you for sharing your excellent work!
Thank you for your replay. I will try ...
During these days i completethe robot and driver cabling and test, so it is finish. Somethis is to do but robot works fine.
I also install the Raspberry software so i will move soon the control to this platform.
Is it possible to use the Xbox controller with Rasperry and AR2?
And, is there a way to change the usage of button and control of the Xbox controller to use, for example, the joypads for moving different axis of robot without change the axis selection?
Wow, very impressive. thank you for sharing.
Chris, i will send to you by mail the cover 3d model so you can share it for other users.
Rear cover during printing ...
Soon the software on Arduino, raspberry and the final test.
I am also thinking to put the raspberry and display in the cover of the driver box.
As you see, i used a IP67 explorer cases from italian SOCEPI.
This are very similar to PELI waterproof case but the cost is very lower and quality is very good.
It is possible i will also do a carrying case for the robot with this type of case.
Also the driver box is to the final stage ...
It use two aviation connector for steppers and one keystone cat6 jack for home switch
