We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
NEW VERSION http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:254244
This is Beta.
Beta is a robot controled by Arduino and a L298N. The communication is via Bluetooth as you can see in the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WrFWBjptyvQ&feature=g-upl
It has 8 servos: 4 to move the legs, and the other 4 to move the wheels; and 4 motors. To power the robot I have used 4 LiPos I had in my house, they are connected in series so I had to use 3 7805 to regulate voltage.
The servos I used for wheels are microservos, NO CONTINOUS ROTATION, imposible to control...
And for the legs, I used a few I already had. This ones I recommend to be more powerful than others.
The motors are geared and are this: http://dx.com/p/high-torque-80rpm-12v-dc-geared-motor-91628?item=6
The Bluetooth module: http://dx.com/p/bluetooth-board-module-4-pin-121326?item=2
And the L298N to control the dc motors: http://dx.com/p/l298n-stepper-motor-driver-controller-board-for-arduino-120542?item=4
The code for Arduino is the file "Codigo.ino"
I'm sorry for the lack of documentation I promise it will be more complete in the next version, Gamma Project.
You need 4 wheels, 4 bobys, 4 legs and 2 bases. You can paste them with so much love and a few of cyanoacrylate (super glue).
I repeat: "I'm sorry for the lack of documentation I promise it will be more complete in the next version, Gamma Project."
The code's anotations are in spanish but I think it is understable. It is in progress too.

So what's this mean?
We're sure VeimoX would love to see what you've printed - take a photo and share it on Thingiverse as a Make.
To post a Make simply visit this Thing again and click I Made One to start uploading your photo. You can also download the Thingiverse Mobile app (available via Google Play and Apple App Store) to take a photo and upload your Make right from the app!
