We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
What does a tank need ?
Ok so the armor is plastic and the guns are actually printable IR proximity sensors.
What? noooo....... you can do that?
Sort of..... they are actually just parts from crap shack assembled in a sexy new package that works like those expensive 14 dollar IR sensors found on most electronic sites. Mine are 3 dollars to build!
All together this mod will give you.
2 printable Infrared Proximity Sensors.
Armor side plates with new mounting holes.
A front bumper that can hold even more sensors.
Im leaveing this thing as a Work in progress just because I will have more sensors in the future.
For Robot in action without Sonar click here
You'll need to print this first
The tracks are located here

Also provided is this playlist that will walk you through the code and hardware setup.
