This is Gareth and myselfs Bev, made for the BBB 5th Birthday party Bevs event just gone. this was a super fun little project that we started working on back in December 22. the robot (if you have an eager eye) looks a lot like gareths beetle Gear Down For What. But for the sweet topping (the Bevs Fun status/spirit of Bevs) was a 5 axes multipurpose Robotic arm. this is a break down of the Build of the Chassis and drive. keep an eye for the iminent post of the arm assembly from Dr Brushless.
The drive sides are 20mm HDPE spaced with 20mm aluminium Bar. the drive is a set of 6384s paired wit some VESC’s running 2 T10 timing belts and a set of 3D printed wheels.
The robot haf a plethera of little 3D printed brackets and covers but i wond bore you with too many details the main chassis was (like the drive sides) spaced with More aluminium bar, staying true to the Gear down style of build.
Forks were 20mm HDPE also and then a lil 5mm HDPE wedge accompanied them on thear adventures. all the other Totally finctional bits of the robot were also 5mm HDPE. the robot also had a couple different attachments. my attempt at a set of wire cutters were… frankly wonderful i mean whofull, but they had the spirit i could tell.
