Did your gear train loose teeth during the battle? What did you print it out of? I u...

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...

Of all the ants I have made, only one had a weapon which lasted about 3 seconds thanks to a horizontal spinner. So I plan at this point to have 4 bots for those events.

servo gears

Another question. gear trains with servos. Im sure at AWS57 I saw someone using a servo with a custom head that was a cog driving a pincer. 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...
