These plastic chains come in 1ft lengths preassembled with 48 individual and snapable bits, they have a tensile strength of 55 lbs, and 0.25” tooth spacing.
Actobotics is a robotics building system based around extruded aluminum channels, gears, precision shafts, and ball bearings. Thanks to the two standardized hole patterns, nearly all Actobotics components can be intuitively connected together. The wide range of components makes building complex electromechanical prototypes or finished projects a reality.
This skill concerns mechanical and robotics knowledge. You may need to know how mechanical parts interact, how motors work, or how to use motor drivers and controllers.
Skill Level: Noob - You will be required to put together a robotics kit. Necessary parts are included and steps will be easy to follow. You also might encounter basic robotics components like bearings, mounts, or other hardware and need a general idea of how it goes together.

This is a low-quality product that has proven unusable for my project. The connections rarely pivot freely, and in many cases are extremely stiff. I find that a loop will only hold the correct shape as it moves if you hold it very taut with a strong (metal) structural brace. That, in turn, requires a relatively powerful motor to drive just the chain, regardless of the load being moved. I wouldn’t recommend this product to anyone.
Have used in multiple projects that have been used over the past couple of years, once assembled and adjusted have functioned flawlessly.
