Re: servo gears

What measures did you take to get the gear running concentric? I wasn’t that scientific – printed the cog to the same height as the horn, stuck some superglue inside and pushed the horn in, then used a flat bit of scrap to push it down to keep it level. Because it’s so small any variance is unnotic...

So a ramble post full of promises and ambition... So my plan for Ant freeze / AWS 57 is weapons.

I wondered how feesible it is to print such a thing? and if so how to simulate all the little grippy teath that the output of a servo has. or is there a far sim...

Antlog issue

Good afternoon.

I have set up AWS 57 on ant log, and I have seemed to have locked the database.

Is it broken, or have I broken it?

Could someone take a look who knows please?

Thanks
