Re: AWS 60 - Headington, Oxford - 30th Nov 2019

hey Dave, i filled out 1 form for myself, my son and my mrs, is this ok or would you prefer a separate one for each? I'm sorting the form (it's for my work). I need to keep an eye on numbers, so ideally each person needs their own form / own entry on the form (if you tick yes to extra people, it le...

Re: servo gears

Files here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3200932 Crabulon was so cool to watch - I regret not coming to take a proper look, will make a point of it at the next event! Did your gear train loose teeth during the battle? What did you print it out of? I use Fusion360 for CAD - it's been a steep lea...

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...

Re: servo gears

The servo pincer was me - there's a cut down servo horn glued inside the cog to make it stay put! I started modelling the grippy teeth for inside but quickly got bored counting teeth and decided to take the easier route. It's not pretty but it works :). I've been having issues with the (ABS) teeth o...

Re: Newbie - DasMikro Burnout

This also just happened to me 2 days ago - scared the life out of me! I was pretty sure I hadn't shorted anything, so emailed Banggood a picture of the blackened chip and they're sending me a new one, no issues :). Just soldered up my second one but haven't tested it yet, keeping my fingers crossed...
