I had a limited amount of money to buy a computer, and in the end I couldn’t get a case and all the other parts. So I made my own. This was really the first version, and I made a couple mistakes on it, but I will use it as is for now. I didn’t use the raster capability of the laser cutter, although I had planned on it. Overall this took about 8 hours, but it wasn’t a hard 8 hours. Most of that was getting the holes to line up, so I think a person familiar with Sketchup should be able to do this in 2 to 4 hours.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
