Here at mimicEducationalRobots we farm out most of our production circuit board assembly, but we still assemble all prototypes in house. Most people are surprised to learn how relatively simple the process really is. This blog assumes that a unique PCB of your own design has come out of your wonderful brain, or at least that you’re interested in how we do things here.
Bradley Ramsey writes on the Tindie blog about this robotics kit from The Maker’s Box:
The Open Source Turtle Robot (OSTR) was created as the basis for a two-day workshop where high school students could gain hands-on experience with engineering concepts. The finished robot even creates interesting pieces of art via pen plotting with Turtle graphics.
The project is Arduino compatible for ease of programming and powered by 4 AA batteries to make it cost effective. Stepper motors were chosen for accurate motion, and the parts were 3D printed for easy customization.
We are proud to be a sponsor of Chicago Northside Mini Maker Faire 2018 this Saturday, May 5th, at Carl Schurz High School:
the first and largest officially licensed Maker Faire in the Chicagoland area. We are a local, grassroots celebration of the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) spirit in Chicago, focusing on education across all ages and social groups. Our makers represent a mix of beginners and experts, hobbyists and professionals, groups and individuals, and all ages, backgrounds, and interests. With a shoestring budget and only a dream, our inaugural Mini Maker Faire in April, 2012 was a smashing success thanks to the 50+ makers who shared their talents in 3D printing, robotics, jewelry making, and urban farming, just to name a few. Now with close to 100 makers, we’re still growing. Comeexperience it for yourself!
Learn how to design boards in KiCad this Saturday, April 28th, with Michael Welling:
We’ve asked Michael Welling of Qwerty Embedded Design to come to Reno to drop some knowledge on KiCad, an open source and multi-platform schematic capture and PCB layout tool. Michael uses KiCad for some of his famous designs such as LoFive, PocketBone, and BaconBits. Space is limited and you should have some basic electronics and CAD skills under your belt already to make the most of this unique opportunity.
This event will be recorded and live-streamed to the GroupGets YouTube channel
9:30am – 12:30pm
2:00pm – 5:00pm
What to Bring:
If you would like to follow along bring a Laptop with KiCad installed
