[TC6] Mech Mini

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow builders!

This is my entry for the 6th technic contest: a mini mech :tongue:

Mech-Mini07.jpg

It has a powerful claw to grab stuff and a boxing arm to defeat itself :laugh: By moving the arms you can switch the output of one M motor to the claw or the boxing arm.

Power Functions:

2 IR receiver

1 AAA battery box

2 L motors for the tracks

1 M motor for arm movement and operating the gearbox

1 M motor for the claw / boxing arm

Finally a very short video, so you can see this little guy in action :wink::thumbup:

Hope you like it!

Good work, I love the multitude of functions all crammed in that small body, and your overall design rocks!

Wall E has finally a friend in the contest! :)

I dunno, I think he might punch Wall-E with his boxing hand :cry2::wink:

Nice little Mech though, for sure.

Thank you guys! :blush:

When the voting is finished i will publish some improvements and a LDD-file, so we can build up a huge army :grin:

yes it was really challenging to cram the whole stuff in the small body. It took 3 rebuilds, but every time it became a bit smaller :thumbup:

of course he won't punch this sad little wall-e :grin: he's a friendly guy...

finally i managed to finish the .lxf . :tongue: I 've improved the switching mechanism so it's more reliable. Also the claw is revised what makes it easier to grab stuff :classic: while building the new claw i had the idea that it would be nice if you had different arms with different functions. e.g. a small claw, big claw, ball shooter, boxing-arm, etc. so you could easily exchange the arms depending on the mech's "mission". Any other ideas for nice arm-tools?

Very nicely done. Reminds me of the AstroMechs, described in link below.
