roppie11 posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingHello people, I'm joining another contest. The idea seemed really nice to me, and it was doable with my skills. My robot is called IRON-SLAMMER-ALPHA!. Iron sounds cool, slammer because i have a hammer and alpha because im the alpha(= first, dominant) I should also mention that i'm in the PF-category and not in the S-brick category progress: IRON SLAMMER ALPHA V1 1. This is the hammer, it will become longer and i put a weight at the end for more impact. 2nd picture is bottom. I have a clutch so the hammer can fall under gravity. That gives bigger impact than the slow moving XL-motor. I geared it ofcourse down otherwise it cant lift the hammer. (I leave a lot of stuff out because it is not relevant anymore) This is the finished model: but it was wayy too big so i teared it down until i had only the hammer left and the gearbox. I then built the following model which i present with proud: IRON-SLAMMER-ALPHA V2.0!! in order to gain more length, i moved the gearbox+motors behind the hammer. The hammer is now 4 studs above the ground. I also put a battery box at the end. The impact is pretty serious right now. In the video i will show you how much. To visualise the impact i had to be quite creative. The tracks are redesigend. The old ones were 'modules' which i put on the side of the model. These tracks are part of the whole thing and can't be taken off. The tracks are not flat because i had to put them over a beam. I do like it so i did not take the effort to change anything. I put the motors, BB and IR-recievers at the back. This is a wheight which prevents the bot from falling foward. It works perfect because it does not tend to fall forward whatsoever. The BB is easy to remove. All it takes is to remove 2 red pins. I'm gonna show in the video how it works. After the tracks and the PF-stuff was done, i made some armor around the tracks. The end result is not very pretty.but it looks badass and works flawless. I am currenly working on a video so i won't show you how it works but you'll see in a few days. Here are the pics: this is the hammer. It is all i had left after tearing down v1. It is 42 studs here because it cannot be higher than 45 studs and i wanted to have some space left. This is the last picture in VVS mode (which is a relief for some people) but this one is VVS because it fit's better in the picture. Here you see the almost finished model. I forgot to take pictures between those moments. After this, i only put on the tracks armor. and This are pictures of the finished model. These are proofs that it fits in a 45x45x45. Here are some facts summed up for you: - weight: 1800 grams - dimensions: LxBxH = 44*35*45 PF components: - 2x L-motor for driving, I am amazed that the l-motors can power the bot because it is quite heavy. - 1x M-motor for clutch - 1x XL-motor for lifting the hammer. It can easily lift the hammer but i can not make it longer otherwise it will stick outside the imaginary box. - 2x Battery box, 1 to power it, and one as weight in the hammer. Thanks for reading this far. I hope you like it. feel free to critisise it because it is far from perfect and all moc's, no matter how good, have flaws.
