The interesting thing about this project is the disclaimer:. In a nutshell, the Killough Platform is based the lego mindstorms ev3 laboratory pdf download 3 holonomic pairs of wheels, which by combining rotations, create vectors of movement. Here are the first castings of the moulds using Pinkysil: The left hand side wheel is the latest from my 3D printer.

Busby Berkeley style, just waiting to be assembled into complete omni-wheels: They are really cool people. Renders of less hex arm more technic bricks here. This is so thin it can be pulled off by hand.

After leaving the project to work on other things, I had a think and came back to it a few days later. Here are the first run of hex thin plate prints: Pretty good but still not up to SLS standard:. Part of the benefit of laboraatory flat plate hex arm design is that existing LEGO elements such as The mould shape means the lego mindstorms ev3 laboratory pdf download silicone is too thin to be able to cope with being pulled out from the undercut without tearing.

I used a magnifying glass while creating the parts so that they would appear just like those in the film. The LEGO wikipedia page http: This enhancement allows for smoother rotation at low speed and better position control. The clearance filleting is obvious: The speed of printing has a great input into the final quality, but also the support material is greatly improved and is the lego mindstorms ev3 laboratory pdf download easy to remove, without leaving marks lfgo everything.

In order to create those holes in an injection mould, an insert the shape of the hole would need to be able to be inserted and removed, in this case from both sides. I came up with this solution, which worked pretty well.

After a part search I found this set from Retrieved from ” https: Apart from the matt finish and the texture when you pick them up, they almost could pass for actual LEGO. The pieces did show some of the tolerance issues with this 3D printing.

This was a pretty good system overall, no mess and accurate. An axle assembly with two complete wheels and hubs. Notify me of new comments via email.

I fixed this is the short term by printing my own rims see previously the 19mm rims above but I want the wheels to be downlkad with existing LEGO. Here is how it works: The overflow was how I could tell the mould was full, with hopefully no trapped air bubbles. The EV3 brick cannot be programmed with the standard NXT software, but some third party software supports both systems.

The LEGO Group is not liable for any loss, injury or damage arising from the use or misuse of LifeLites downloqd which contain these repackaged elements. Air the lego mindstorms ev3 laboratory pdf download can be seen on the upper surface of the wheel.

Here laboartory the two halves of the mould, with one the lego mindstorms ev3 laboratory pdf download on the perf. The current design calls for 3 hex arms, each with 3 pairs of wheels.

It also means that each 6 FLU arm mindstorrms only 4 Technic holes rather than 5, the hole closest to the middle is filled in, which solves the problem of creating a part that would be impossible to injection mould see above: Researching how to remove bubbles from the mixed silicone led me to look at vacuum chambers, but these are really for making moulds out of silicone.

The cast was hard to de-mould at first, but with practice it got easier. After lots of swearing, when I discovered that it is possible to run Mindstorms software on Windows 7 64 bit, but the infrared tower that sends the code to the RCX unit is 32 the lego mindstorms ev3 laboratory pdf download, I got it all to work using an old XP netbook. The lego mindstorms ev3 laboratory pdf download arms on the white version ABS plastic on an Up!

And for comparison, a VEX mecanum wheel, where the added complexity and strength requirements are reflected in their higher cost. Again you can see the resolution issues. Another future learning is to design with the silicone tolerances in mind.

Some more work is required to better attach the new style EV3 motors to the wheel cages, under load they tend to pull away from the chassis, but overall this design works a lot better: It worked really well, apart from having a different surface finish it is very shinyso I fixed up a lot of cosmetic holes on other wheels: All of this needs to be removed with pliers and scalpel:. I have the option of making each wheel diameter 5.
