Creating your own GoPiGo Parts

In lesson 3 of the Engineering Design Process unit, students will learn how to take the concepts taught in lesson 2 and extend them into their own creations such as customized bumpers or a new way to mount a sensor.

4. Investigate: Attach items with nuts and bolts

The pegs are great because they don't require any extra Hardware. However, the pegs are also very fragile and can break easily. It can also be difficult to design a model that will print correctly without using supports. Nuts and bolts can give us some added strength and make designing a little easier as the bottom of your print can be flat. Using the attached .stl files, download an example that can be attached to the GoPiGo with nuts and bolts and test it out.

Example 3D print with a "nuts and bolts" mount.
