TurtleBot3 is a small, affordable, programmable, ROS-based mobile robot for use in education, research, hobby, and product prototyping. The goal of TurtleBot3 is to dramatically reduce the size of the platform and lower the price without having to sacrifice its functionality and quality, while at the same time offering expandability.
Well, as I'm much more interested in enlarging the size and therefore went for bigger parts like Dynamixel MX-64 and bigger wheels. This is my plan!

It's interesting to see different approaches to robot building! While TurtleBot3 focuses on affordability and compactness, it's great to see someone experimenting with larger parts and wheels to create a different type of robot. Good luck with your plan and I hope it turns out well!
