Mindstorms robot arm instructions
However I also wanted to be able to build models produced by the previous Nxt 1 set, so I decided to purchase in addition the Education Resource Set Version1 Colour Ball Sorting Robot Arm, using parts from and sets, togeher with a turntable part cx1. I liked Philo's gate mechanism of two oscillating rods used to release the balls, and started by modifying this so that the colour sensor was placed between the two rods, rather than after the mindstorms robot arm instructions rod.
The gate assembly itself was mindstorms robot arm instructions simple. The turntable base assembly was also fairly straightforward. It is suggested that you download the programs and load them into Mindstorms editor to follow the ensuing discussion. More interesting was how to attach a touch sensor to it to stop the gate in exactly the right position.
Also it performed so rapidly that each "run" mindstorms robot arm instructions soon over. More interesting was how to attach a touch sensor to it to stop the gate in exactly the right position. However supporting the ball track and gate assembly at a suitable angle was more demanding, and took some time to work out.
However I also wanted to be able to build models produced by the previous Nxt 1 set, so I decided to purchase mindstorms robot arm instructions addition the Education Resource Set Perpetual Ball Mover Robot Arm, using parts from NXT 2 set, and set together with a turntable part cx1, and an extra 15 beam, two extra 24 tooth gearwheels, a 52mm Lego Ball, the whole mounted on a 32 x 32 stud green Lego base mindstorms robot arm instructions. A full parts list is included in the build instructions.
The model was constructed using components from both the and sets and also requires the turntable which is included in the nxt 1. I decided to build my own colour sorter, and spent a couple of days designing the hardware and then some time on programming it. I also tried all the bonus models from the and sets together with Hans Andersson's sudoku solver tiltedtwister. With these parts, I spent the last two months working through most of the models on the excellent nxtprograms.
