Back to one of my modes of operation, the creation inspired by a piece, here the 25214 in Light Bluish Gray. For several months, the piece has been on my desk, I have made dozens of shapes without ever ending up with a finished creation. Now I have finally arrived at a result and I am waiting for your feedback. It is also a creation that is very much in evidence, it is the first time I have left so many. Well, there are eyes too, I like SF mocs with eyes :)
camellia posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingCamellia Café MCU (Micro Control Unit) gives children or students initial knowledge of Electronics. In Camellia Café MCU Laboratory, you will get basic knowledge of Electronics, Mechanisms and Software programming. Servo motor is widely used as an actuator of autonomous cars, robots and droids. A Servo Motor is a self-close loop. But only have a high performance motor is not enough. The motor-driven chips, encoder and algorithm play important roles. All keep servo motor with high accuracy in speed / torque, degree / position, time period feedback control. With Wifi Bluetooth/BLE and Cellular, it will be feasible to manipulate them from PCs, Pads and phones. What’s more, this make it easy to connect to Internet and Cloud Database. Mechanism is the body of Autonomous Cars, Robots and Droids. It is the mechanism that fulfills the movement. Gear, Belt or Chain and Linkage are three major transmission mechanisms. This is a simple gear transmission. Due to different teeth of these gears, the speed is reduced with torque increased. Chain or belt is another type movement transmission. It could transmit movement in a long distance. Worm gear is a special gear. It can only transmit from worm to spur. The reverse is infeasible. Linkage is a third type of movement transmission. Crosshead is another key element. However, we are familiar with numbers and letters. Only with Binary, it is hard for a robot to communication with us. It is the ASCII code that instructs a robot to recognize or display letters. Program, or called Code, is the body of the algorithm. It is the program and code that instruct Autonomous Cars, Robots and Droids to perform their action. No matter Assembly Language, or Objective Oriented / Procedure Oriented Language; no matter C, C++, Basic, Java, or Visual C++, C#, even Swift, Python… Don’t worry about so many types of platforms and codes. If you master one of them, you will be familiar with others. When working, you only need to decide which code language is asked as the hardware / platform requires and as your preference, even new type code is coming, after learning in a very short time, you will get that new and get done with your program. Different hardware and different platforms support different code languages. Some hardware such as the controller MCU in Camellia Café Model uses language which is very close to C. Windows support a lot of languages, C, C++, C# and Visual C++ are fittest. Visual Studio is their develop tool. Android (based on Linux) phones and pads use Java. And the develop tool is Android Studio. iOS or Mac OS (based on Unix) which is in your iPhones, iPads or Macs use Objective-C or Swift. Their develop tool is Xcode. Welcome to Camellia Café !
Red Moon posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingHello everyone, just joined not too long ago, I'm someone who always loved the mechanical ability of lego from an early age, and I think I've found the right place : ) Just recently, I took to spending far too long on Digital Designer, and here's one of the projects I want to share with you. It's a sci-fi-themed vertical sliding door that is different from most as it uses a 'worm' mechanism to push the door upwards and downwards. I do not have the facility right now in my life to start collecting all the pieces, so building this without tangible Lego was a bit challenging to say the least. Anyway I'd really like to hear your thoughts on this project, whether or not you think it could work etc, and I'm more than happy to share it with you. Thanks guys : )
