diabetemonster shared a balancing robot design on Thingiverse.
Eddie is back and he’s excited to show off his improvements.
This is EddiePlus and he has a much cleaner look, new accessories, and vastly improved performance.
All the great features of the original Eddie still exist:
New features with EddiePlus:
Dual PID control on each wheel
Anti-drift when traveling in a straight line
No exposed screws
Backpack to keep electronics safe
Build Guide to assist in assembly
iOS application (can accept a limited number of beta testers)
Eddie’s source code is available on github
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
