I will use these angular geared motors to propel the robot:
I designed according mounting plates to attach the motor to the 15 x 15 mm MakerBeam T-nut profiles and laser cut it from 3 mm stainless steel plates. The DFX file will be provided later in the file section.
Steel plates attached to the motors and tested by a Pololu Dual VNH5019 Motor Driver Shield.
Motors attached to base.
Wheels attached to the motors:
To assemble the caster wheels to the MakerBeam system I CNC'd two mounting brackets:
It is important that the caster wheels have a few millimeter ground clearance, otherwise the robot can not overcome smallest obstacles like a door sill.
