wofür sind ganzen Rollen an dem Riemen ?
wie wird der Riemen angetrieben, also was nimmt den Riemen mit ?
warum ist der Riemen innen gerillt, ich sehe kein Gegenprofil?
The armour and weapon blades arrive from our team sponsor Fractory! This was a hefty pack of goodies for sure, including lots of 3mm, 15mm and 20mm thick hardened steel, all laser cut to a good quality finish meaning very little post process work was needed
Assembling the beefy drive gearboxes, designed by Cosmin at Bad Timing Robotics for the Jäger machines. In initial brief drive testing these appear to hold up perfectly fine!
The front rear support/guard for the weapon motors, made up of layered 25mm HDPE (again) and a carbon fibre reinforced "onxy" 3D printed top part, designed to be light and stiff. This housed some small bearings that span around centre hubs attached to the back of the motors, while the HDPE helped support a big shoulder bolt up front, which the robot would rest on while upside down
When everything was wired and mostly assembled, it was time for VESC setup and testing of the weapon. Ellis Ware offered to help with this out of kindness and for research purposes, which I very much appreciated to give me a head start into the world of VESCs as the deadline quickly approached. Here is a still from the first test video of the weapon running. This can be found here:
Overall I was pretty happy with how it worked, but some improvements could definitely be made to reduce the spin up time.
