    Thanks for posting/sharing this project. I was checking out the Parts list and was wondering what size servo is utilized (small, medium, large)? I was not able to find the servo part spec in the list.

    Regards,

    -Will

    Excellent, I have those laying around. Kind of bummed that I could have purchased the Sparkfun EiBotBoard for 50% off on CyberMonday but at the time didn't see how that fit into the grand scheme of things. Now that this resource is around, I'm seriously considering picking up the board just to have my own V-Slot EggBot.

    me too now that I know, dang it! I use that board for lots of cool projects.
    So having one one hand may be a good idea for the future ;)

    Laser V Bot sounds good to me :)
    little pin mod to add servo control to the driverboard should work nice :D

    Well since I'm locked up due to weather, I figured I would slap together the prototype of you guessed it "Laser Bot" :D

    TY!

    I'm wiring it now for a test run.
    Waiting on other items for Laser V before I can complete it.
    I designed the parts 2 days ago and then spent 2 days milling and test fitting everything.
    This is a gift for my 6 year old, she can't wait :)

    There should be no problem using the eggbot board and this would make a great OpenBuild project! :D

    Hello @Espey sorry did not have time to finish this build log yet but you could download the SketchUp model files (Files tab) and get a good idea of how it goes together there until the instructions are posted.

    Hi.... not sure if its just my browser (latest Chrome) but trying to d/l files instead its trying to open the file on a new page. Rather than starting the download choose a folder on my hard drive routine....it started after getting a browser warning about opening the software zip file which I thought I had cancelled....also started getting a waiting for port alert..FYI....Rgds...Laurie

    Edit... rebooted my PC as it appears to have been the browser being the problem... downloaded the files ok now....Rgds...Laurie

    Easter is closing in, and I plan to start building my own v-slot eggbot this weekend.
    Do someone have the rough length of all v-slot parts used? I need to cut my extrusions, and it would help to have the lengths needed instead of me figuring it out as I go :)

    Thanks,
    Håkan

    Hello @Heffa man it comes around quick!
    You can download the model and get the measurements using the SketchUp dimensions tool.
    Edit: Its been a while since I have looked but after looking it seems I already did a layout of all the V-Slot™ needed for the build.
    Here is picture of the model with the V-Slot laid out.
    Hope this helps
