While building new copies of Upkie, we wrote full Build instructions for future travelers. These instructions cover all the steps from ordering to running a first balancing experiment:

  1. Getting started
  2. 3D printing
  3. Raspberry Pi setup
  4. Electronics testing
  5. Motion control software
  6. Assembly

They go through intermediate stages like electronics assembly:

With figures, so that new comers know (and old timers remember 😉) the orientation of each part:

In the hope these instructions help spawn and maintain many Upkie's!
