In a way. There’s a chain bolted to the 1x1 moving stage and a sprocket that rolls the chain back and forth like a rack and pinion.

How much compression do you guys run on the innermost part of the intake (for cones)?

What is that strut on the arm, is it a gas strut or a damper?

if a gas strut is it pulling or pushing

It’s a gas spring from McMaster (push style). It has some damping capabilities but it’s mostly just a spring.

I don’t think the document was made public. Could you double check that it was actually released? When i click on the link it just brings me to the documents page, and saying that I do not have access to that document.

Love this robot. Thanks for releasing the CAD!

They are sanded polycarbonate tubes with 3D printed endcaps and addressable LEDs taped inside. First time trying this method but we were inspired by Spectrum’s sanded polycarb as a diffuser.
