I apologize for my inactivity over the past year. I have been very busy and haven’t had a chance to post anything here or to my youtube. I am currently working on a number of projects that I hope to post videos about sometime soon.
The MiniZip shop is still open and orders are being shipped out quickly.
Thanks for your understanding!
Hi everyone! I haven’t been posting many projects lately, so here are a few updates.
The MiniZip shop is still open and orders will be shipped out within 1-2 business days*
You can find my designs for 3D printing on Thingiverse here: http://www.thingiverse.com/1nxtmonster/designs
I will try to be posting more projects and videos soon.
*Generally within 1-2, it may take slightly longer for very large orders.
You can now purchase MiniZip cables on my online store. Visit it here:
A very compact lego automatic transmission. A pneumatic cylinder provides reliable shifting. The gearing is very strong and I plan to use it in a trial truck soon.
Hi guys, I’m thrilled to present MiniZip – the 9v battery adapter for your lego creations! I am releasing it on kickstarter, you can see it here:
And of course the project video:
Thank you for your support!
A small compilation of some cool footage or projects that didn’t get posted yet. Video:
A concept that I built. Basically, it is a clutch that has less little friction (e.g. can be spun more easily) than a normal clutch because it only engages when there is a load on the output. The heavier the load, the more it engages. This system works very well, and could be modified to have different ‘slipping points’ as in it’s current demonstrative form it can stall any motor connected. Video:
Controlling 4 continuous rotation servos with a PS3 controller. The buttons are pressure sensitive, so the harder you press the faster they spin. Uses the Adafruit 16 Servo Driver for control and a 4X AA battery pack for power. Very fun, has lots of applications. Video:
My robocross built out of lego technic for science olympiad. RC with power functions, two M motors for driving and two L motors for arm operation. Claw opens and closes, arm goes up and down. Does well, placed 4th at regionals. Video:
Almost done! Some test-shooting:
