Designing a Servo Motor Based Mallet System to Generate Musical Expression in Instrument Playing Robots

Plan

I will need to finish building the remaining 15 servo-mallet systems.

Procedures

I will attach the mallets onto all of the servos and use a 3D printer to print the stands to hold up the servo-mallet system.

Progress

I have finished printing the final 15 stands needed for my servo-mallet system. Using zip-ties and rubber bands, I also completed attaching the mallets to the servo horn.

In addition, as shown above, the new components I had ordered arrived. This includes the power supply, the power adapter, and the servo extension cables. 

Problems

For next week, I will need to continue building the final set of servo-mallet systems by attaching the servo to the stands I have finished 3D printing.
