Rhoby – open-source platform for creating a small social robots.
This robotics platform ideal for learning kids to programming and electronics. But most important what is it very useful for teaching “special” kids, with autism syndrome for example.
In one moment I realized that for my future projects I need new knowledge (obviously). And programming language was one of. Have spent some time by searching and reading numerous publications, I understood that programming language which I needed is a Python.
When we started this project with my friend, we have very ambitious ideas and we made a big mistake – began right off built a big CNC machine without any experience in these field.
One of the main problem is twisting of the gantry.
If you look at the picture, you can see white contour which shows the location of the gantry bulk, Z-axis moving along this beam. Violet arrow show the shoulder between bulk and weight(red contour around milling tool) on the Z-axis. Plus, Z-axis itself have a big height (green arrow). All this construction’s “features” giving a twisting gantry while X-axis or Z-axis moves.
Now I try to solve this problem using little changes in assembly of the Z-axis.
Work in progress. Our first CNC machine on the way to be working tool. Now our main aim is calibrating all axis mechanical and program.
Ever since my first digital watches were presented me on eighth birthday, I fallen in love with watches. I own various types – quartz, digital, mechanical.
Last few years wearable electronics has becoming more popular, especially «smartwatches». And I started to look at this kind of watches, but I, similar to some other people, do not like the far-fetched concept of this kind devices. Continue reading
