Electronics / Use closed loop stepper motors instead of open loop stepper motors
« Last post by ben25 on April 07, 2024, 02:17:07 AM »
Hello everyone,
My 3D printer has a slow printing speed. Once the speed is increased, the motor will easily lose synchronization, and the accuracy and success rate will drop significantly. If I want to solve these problems, can I use a closed loop stepper motor instead of an open loop stepper motor? A motor similar to this:
Misc / Re: Articulated Robot Question

Does a cylindrical robot with 2 vertical rotary joints (one on base, one on arm) make it articulated?
If so, when I remove one rotary joint (base or arm), does that make it non articulated?
At the present time, this is completely possible. I believe that in the future robots will become even more flexible.
Mechanics and Construction / Re: Trumpet Playing Robot... how does it work?

All they have to do is vibrate the air entering the trumpet at the frequency they want to influence the pitch.  Lips do this for humans, but my guess is that they used some sort of flapper inside the mouth of the robot.

Here is a better view of a couple Aerophone playing robots.  Toyota's Robot Quartet Band.  You can see there is nothing protruding from the mouth, and the orifice is smooth.
I was truly enlightened with this new perspective.
Misc / American Robots 1978 robot build plans $200 reward

I had these plans from American Robots in 1979 that would still hold up today!  I lost them.  They were for a 5 foot robot that resembled Robby The Robot, with working claws motors etc.  I lost them when I moved once and have been hunting for them ever since.  Going to be hard to recover something that old but here is hoping!

Hello, I am working on constructing the B-Robot EVO 2, however, I can not find the control board they list: ... oard-v1-0/
