Hi mach1

Once retired, you will soon enter a very busy time, trust me on this one   ;)

I don't own a CNC machine anymore
This project is a nice opportunity for you get into the 3d printing Universe
Files are on Thingiverse

A good printer can now be had for less than $200


My advice: get familiar with servo motors first and spend time on the test bench before building the final prototype

Hi Kas

I am slowly assembling what is needed for this project. What do you think about this as a power supply:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Waterproof-18650-Battery-Pack-8-4V-Case-House-Cover-for-Bike-Light-Lamp-UK-stock/282920287390?hash=item41df5cfc9e%3Am%3Am5OE9_yJ4FOGiJXL5Qt36zw&var=582770477611&_pgn=2&_sacat=7294&_nkw=bike+light+battery+pack&_from=R40&rt=nc

8.4 V to power the Arduino, 5 V to power the servos.


By the way I am heading for the Android route. Any chance that I can have the app now in readiness?

Thanks.

Hi Mach1
This device with 6 X 18650 batteries will be OK, but is pretty much overkill for the job
Same with two batteries only will be 100% acceptable

I power my own bot with 2 X LiFePO4 batteries
6.6V is slightly out of spec for both Arduino and servo's, but it works pretty well

End of technical support


I have been supporting this project for nearly four years, this was an exciting experience
I have since moved to other projects and it's now time for me to retire

All possible questions have been answered in this thread, just read it  ;)
The Android App is here

Nice implementation
Thanks for sharing   ;)

I made a robot for the Rubik's Cube.
On Python works.
ON THE ANDROID no
I read both forums completely.
The problem in the phone and arduino connection.
The phone passes the test -  AndroTest_V20_POSTED_DEBUG,AndroTest_V20_POSTED- OK.
BUT - CubeMover13_posted NO, Will help?

Based on this long and fruitful discussion I decided to make my own robot. It is running stand-alone without any external Computer or smart-phone. I'm using a Raspberry pi - therefore most SW discussion cannot be applied.

Hai Kas,

Fantastic project, in a week I saw YOUR project on the internet and was sold, I immediately started building with my Prusa i3 printer
I want to build the smartfpone version as you can see, I have already installed the app and arduino code
Now adjust and try, I hope it works

Thanks for sharing it with us

Because nobody reacts,i think this project is closed
A test setup with discarded 3D printer parts
I think my standard servos are too weak
A fantastic project and well explained

I cannot comment to your smart phone SW. But if you are interested in an Raspberry pi implementation you can use HW and SW as described above.
