So in this part I will make a concept of a leveling system for the cutting blades. My idea is that the cutting blades can be leveled with the help of two actuators. Why? First, the idea is that it will be able to know when the motors are running too heavy. If they are, the blades will gradually increase until they rotate easy. if thats not possible, they will shut down and the mower will try to find another way. Second they will also be controlled from the setting, making it possible to set in what region the grass should be lower etc. Please note that the cutting blades are only for demo purpose.

So I made a small test drive to confirm that the motors and the roboclaw st 2x45a are working as they suppose to. The speed of the robot is quite slow now and running with 125mm wheels. On the Valify V2 robot 230mm wheels are going to be used. Hardware that was used in this […]
5 minutes ago my printer (Raise3D N2+) finished part 6 for the Valify Robot Lawnmower, the lid for the back region. The print was running smooth and I am happy with the end result. It is a quite tall object with minimal bed surface. I got nice BED adhesion anyways and it printed fine without […]
Yesterday I did a quick and dirty assembly of the right wheel with shaft, bearings, motor and motor bracket. The motor bracket is a 3D printed prototype before doing the acutal CNC milling manufacturing. The bracket today is printed with PETG from PrimaSelect. PETG is a great filament, very solid and hard, but yet flexible. […]
