If so, what software are you using?
Would it be easy to reproduce your setup?
on reliability and turn around?
I'm past the prototyping phase of this project I'm rambling through with my
brother, and I need fabrics for the exterior of this...thing.

I met a nice young lady at the Devry Career Day (for high schoolers) last week and she wanted me to mention there are some LEGO Robotics instructor positions available through Galileo Learning this summer. The information is below if you are qualified, interested and would like to contact Aubrea.

have less backlash than gears I'd like to design an all belt and pulley
drive train. My only problem is finding a pinion pulley that fits that
shaft of small motors. The smallest pulley that I found has a bore of 3.2
We finally got accepted into Maker Faire [link] but they didn't give us the number of passes requested so here’s what we’re going to do… reply to this email IF you will be available both days of Maker Faire (May 18 & 19) AND have at least one HomeBrewed Robot AND will make yourself available for booth duty for at least 3 hours per day. If you are not interested in Maker Faire chatter please avoid the “Maker Faire” subject header. After gauging interest I will inquire about more passes (if necessary). I realize there are some family teams in which case the best thing to do is have more than one homebrewed robot but if that’s not an option perhaps we can get additional passes; again, I need to gauge interest before requesting more passes. Please reply quickly as this event is only a few short weeks away.

Thanks again for the opportunity to speak last night. I had one quick request: I noticed that some of the members were video taping the presentation. I don’t have a problem with the video taping but for those that did, can you ask that they refrain from posting it publically on the internet? I don’t mind if they share it among the club members….I just want to avoid it being totally accessible to the public. Even though the information I shared was public knowledge available on the robot maker’s web site, I’d like to avoid any potential bad guy from learning more about the robot or SWAT tactics. Thanks!

Techshop can't make the 0.5mm features. I thought I would try casting.
Before I do, does anyone know if it works for features that small, and is
it cost effective? The wheel is 11mm in diameter and 4.1mm deep.

If anyone took it, may you please somehow transfer it to me?
