As we are supposed to learn from our mistakes I have written up one of my failures.

The project was to build a bot, as cat like as possible, to sit and wave a paw, stand up and walk around.

The activity started more than three years ago with an attempt to copy Boston Dynamics’ quadruped - Spot.  Believing the quoted torque values was the first mistake as the 55g servos could barely lift their own weight. The leg modules were later re-used for HybridTrotter and Scooter Boy where they provided the drive but the weight was carried on wheels.

Using a Picaxe micro, Hybrid Trotter was posted on their forum and the video shows a disinterested Meowth idly watching. A spirited Am...

Hello Rebels!

Intro aka The why

I've managed to get frustrated enough by recurring printing issues, cheap parts, experiments, experimental firmware and ended up having a semi functional Acryl which still need a lot of the aging parts replaced and probably a new hotend too.

So I gave in and ordered an "Original Prusa I3 Mk3" printer kit. It's somewhere in Budapest at this time on it's way to Romania where DHL estimates it will  be delivered by Wednesday.

Up till now I have been porting scans over the Serial wires and manually presenting the data.....

Now the Rig has its own Real-Time Debug TFT Display. (you might see it below the right wheel)

Above is just a 180° scan of this below :-

Wooden planks set at 90° and two DVD cases thrown in for measure.

I placed the Sensor rig into a cardboard box just to get a feeling for the data.

This is two passes of the probe, so you can see the slight variance in data.

Overlaying the raw data for 180°.... this was with GIMP so its just approximate

all looks kinda good except Hmmmm.... rounded corners cannot be explained...

another scan with DVD's :-
