This Blue Octagon Chassis makes for an excellent robot body that’s easy to machine and modify. It’s a single piece of 4mm thick plastic, with a variety of holes, slots and cutouts for mounting boards, sensors, and servos. The sides are notched to fit two DC Gear ‘TT’ motors – you’ll want to get four M3 or 4-40 screws about 24mm/1.0″ long to mount the motors. At either end you can screw on a ball caster. You can build a very sturdy (and quite handsome!) medium-sized robot rover with this frame.
Can be used to build a 2-wheel robot
Tons of mounting holes & slots!
You can drill and cut plastic so it’s easy to modify
Top is nice and large, so it will fit a Crickit, Raspberry Pi, Jetson Nano…whatever you want!
Won’t crack or break if it falls down the stairs (alright, it happens)
Remember, this is just the plastic frame chassis!Motors, wheels, motor driver, microcontroller, etc are not included!
