Last weekend a good friend and me where asked to come to the “Mini Maker Faire” in the Netherlands.
We where there “as builders” to talk with people how like to build something like InMoov.
At our stand, we shared some more projects from https://www.wevolver.com/home/
During this weekend it was a good moment to test my finger “servo-safer” setup.
So I’ve programmed a simple ServoSlow sketch for the Arduino.
The finger was running about 8 ours non stop without any problems.
And the second day it was running for 7 ours non stop…
Here a video:
Because of these good test results, I’ve ordered some smaller servo’s !
If these new and smaller servo’s are strong enough, it saved a lot of weight.
I’ve ordered these: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewitem.asp?idproduct=47109
During this weekend, the finger was moving with a Towerpro MG996R servo (55 gr. each!)
5 new small servo’s are together 65 gr. (5×13 gr.) and 5 MG996R are 275 gr. together !
OK, the smaller servo’s can handle maximum 2,5Kg, so I hope this is enough 🙂
I think it’s enough, and I hope it is…
Later this week ,I hope to show and share some results.
Great pictures, I hope the mini makerfaire was a lot of fun!!
Thanks Gaël and yes it was “a lot of fun” 😉
