What type of batteries are you using to power the bot? With the ones I got from the store the power constantly drops when servos are powered and rests the arduino. It works fine on USB power though.

Hollo. You can use 9Volts batteries like this: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/8/8d/Duracell_9_Volt_0849.jpg/200px-Duracell_9_Volt_0849.jpghttp://upload.wikimedia.org/wi...

With those it has been tested and works. You have the exact space to place them on the bottom, below the chassis.

I myself use a LiPo battery with 2 cells ans 1.2 AH. And I place it under the Arduino board.

Hi Alberto, We made one protobot!! it calls JuanPaBot and it is under development. We don't have US sonar pictures but let us some time more and it will become better than yours, you know it!!

You'll have to demonstrate that!

Wanted to add (even though it was mentioned in the objects you derived it from, but I somehow missed it) the step:

4) Hack the servos (so that they can turn 360 degrees)

One Google hit I found for that was here:

you may want to check the ProtoBot sensor plugin: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:19555http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...

Thanks jkeegan, you were right, I assumed that step, I update the instrucions. I Hope you enjoy the printbot. I am updating it with range sensors, I will upload it as soon as I check the parts fit well with the sensors.
