Re: Project robot lawnmower

The URDF is very time consuming but its coming along nicely. I have added all joints and are now working on to make them work as in reality. The wheels are working great and the visualization in RVIZ presents the reality very well. I have also started to work with the IMU joint and the ability to vi...

Re: Project robot lawnmower

So today the rear wheel arch part 2 finished. 37 hours print that consumed around 450grams filament. I have to say that I was a bit nervous when printing this. 5mm thickness and around 250mm heigh, not much bed surface, but the raise managed to print it with success! 52EBB69D-4F2F-4486-880A-52E521FB...

I have tried rafts and they usually create more problems rather then helping me :)

Re: Project robot lawnmower

Here is some pictures printing part 1/2 of the wheel arch. Sometimes the support structures fails to stick enough to the bed and to save the print and a bunch of filament, duck tape saves the day :-) IMG_3057.jpg Have you tried Solid Base Layers under the Support settings? It creates a sturdy base ...

Re: Project robot lawnmower

Today I finished with the design of the new nose. new design nose.png Before printing the new nose I decided to print only the housing for the ZR300 camera. The partly printed part came out great. The main modification from the original housing is that the housing is made deeper so the PCB can be mo...

Always happy to share Timber Haint. :-)

Update:
The robot got eyes! Before mowing along with the design of the nose I needed to confirm the field of view. Running Intel® RealSense™ ZR300 over ROS.

Re: Project robot lawnmower

Testing the 3D printed front nose. Looks quite good. Minor adjustments needs to be done. Printed with PrimaSelect PETG @240C, 85C bed, 3shells and 15% infill (Very solid outcome). Countersink need to be adjusted to cut the body. The Integrated ZR300 camera need some cover on the back. Check if one c...

Re: Project robot lawnmower

@zemlin I am sure you are right. This was the first time for me printing Carbon. But my conclusions are that is not worth spending these extras bucks because the overall strength is not as good as one should expect. :/

But I am not sure it´s worth the extra bucks compered to PETG. a whopping 95USD/kg VS 35USD/kg This was my first print running almost same settings as the Normal PETG, I ...
