Do you offer the CAD file of all the robots you designed? I only saw a 2020 extrusion profile.
Looks like sketchup CAD model. I would really appreciate a link to download all these components and designs from.

I will continue to make works using this.

Thank you, but I meant the cad models of the... N20 motors, greared motors, Hbridge chips, 9g servos, arduinos, pulleys, etc... to design different bots around those components.
It took about a week, but I already cad modeled everything i needed.

Impressive, looks like a lot of work went into that! My complements.
