Servo Motor Mounts

In Lesson 4 students will continue to enrich their understanding of the Engineering Design Process as they add mounts to hold servo motors to their GoPiGo Robots. This is a great lesson in measuring, planning, and rethinking how systems work.

1. Investigate: Introduction

3D printing new parts for your GoPiGo is a lot of fun and it's a great exercise to improve your 3D modeling skills and understanding. However, to make the GoPiGo more functional, we will explore how to attach customized mounts for sensors and actuators. Although a large focus of this lesson will be focused around the use of servo motors, don't overlook the idea that 3d printing allows us to place mounts for anything, in any position, anywhere on the GoPiGo that we would like.
