  • That sure looks neat. But, what would be the total cost of the “Actobotics Based Differential Platform.” as shown ?

    • The wishlist with all the parts can be found here. The wishlist tallies the cost of all the pieces used in the build including boards and batteries.

      • Looks like you’re missing some items on you’re wish list. For instance, the picture clearly shows there should be two 8-inch tubes, not one as currently shown in your wish list. Also missing from your list are the clamps for the Arduino, or whatever board you plan on using.

        • Sorry about that. The tubes appeared to be in the list when I checked. But you are right about the clips. They are not presently available on the storefront. However there is a link in the tutorial for the .dxf design file. I recommend laser-cutting them from 1/8" Delrin, but 1/8" ABS was used in these photos.

          • Sounds great Vosper. I've been wanting to start building a robot with differential platform using something like Actobotics and this just fell from the sky! I appreciate all the effort that you guys put into this. Cheers.
