This is a great robot kit. The Arduino libraries make it very easy to wite complex programs for it. My only complaint is the lack of free IO connections.
Does anyone who’s played with it think there’s a good way to attach a pen at the center of rotation to make a draw bot. It’s easy enough to add a sharpie to the back, but I want to have the corners on the drawing as sharp as possible. The robot is just so low profile there’s not really room to put anything underneath.
I was planning on taking the wheel off mine and making larger ones. It would increase speed…and it may allow you to get some kind of pen underneath it. However, this would lower the torque of the motors. I think you could modify the wheels to be 50% – 100% larger?
