This is a simple robot design that has been developed to work with and the Shrimp (http://shrimping.it) Arduino and Raspberry Pi.

The aim of the project is to create a cheap robot that can be built in schools and can easily be customised by students. For this reason we have tried to design a simple chassis that can be build entirely from a single piece of wood/perspex.

Follow the development of the ShrimpBot at http://geekmoore.wordpress.com/ & http://www.youtube.com/geekmoore226


Changes from V1.5 to V1.6

1) Larger wheels, if they are turned 360° in opposite directions bot will turn 360°
2) Option to mount motors on outside
3) 2 internal supports added

This design is for 3.5mm materials.

An assembly guide is included in the files section.

Contact me on twitter @GeekMoore if you have any questions or want details on the components we have used in the finished bots.

I believe I've found a mistake in the layout. One of the cutouts for the small risers is narrower than the rest. The difference is small enough that it should still work fine, 3.2 vs 3.5 mm though. I'm in the process of converting the plans to use 6mm acrylic (what I've currently got access to) and was confused when one of the holes was sized differently. I'll post my 6mm version when I've got one built and am sure everything works.

What motors are you using? Love the design, would like to use these to replace my boebots.
