Construction

Asssembly of Slambot.

rs1

These are the components for the chassis that you will find in your pack.

rs2

The first thing that you need to do is prepare to place the motors on the base plate. First, carefully place a motor so that it clears the two large holes on either side.

rs3

Mark the location of the axle.

rs4

Use a marker to mark the line of the axle across the base plate.

rs5

Place some double sided tape on top and bottom of both motors (with axle at side)

rs6

Remove the backing on the four pieces of tape.

rs7

Using the two really small nuts and bolts, fix the caster onto the front metal bracket.

rs8

Now assemble the motors and chassis frame – be sure to add the metal bracket before fixing the nuts!

rs9

With the bracket in place, fix the nuts.

rs10

The top pieces for motors will bend slightly.

rs11

Insert the spacer on to axle.

rs12

Next add the wheel plus a plastic “washer” on outside of wheel. This is fixed by carefully screwing in the self tapping screw through the washer and into the tiny hole provided in the axle.

rs13

That’s the basic chassis taken care of. Next up is fixing the breadboard, programming circuit and battery pack.

rs14

Cut out four small and one long piece of double-sided sticky tape.

rs15

Place the four small pieces on the circular pads on the underside of the programming board, peel the top layer and stick the programming board to the underside of the chassis.

rs16

Place the larger piece of double-sided on the underside of the white breadboard containing  your circuit and stick it on the top of the chassis between the wheels.

rs17

The holes in chassis on either side of the breadboard are primarily for passing cables through as needed.

rs18

Tie a white plastic cable tie through these holes and around both breadboard and programming board.
