Poppy Ergo Jr: Bill of material
First, open your box, take out all parts from their bag or cardboard, and prepare a clean workbench. Let's have a look at the content of your kit! If you are 3D-printing your own Ergo Jr this step will also allow you to check that you got all parts you need.
What is included...
- 1x Raspberry Pi board: this board is the mini-computer acting as the brain of your robot
- 1x microSD card with pre-loaded Poppy software: this one goes in the Raspberry Pi
- 1x Raspberry Pi camera: as you may expect it, this camera is made especiallly for the Raspberry Pi. It comes with its interface cable.
- 1x AC power 7.5V 2A with a 2.1 x 5.5 x 9.5 jack connector (usually this model)
- 1x short ethernet cable to communicate with your robot before you setup the wifi
- 6x XL-320 motors: these motors, coming with a cable each, are called servomotors: they're smarter than a regular motor because they are able to follow a setpoint position or speed
- 1x Pixl board: this tiny board goes on top of the Raspberry Pi and allows it to talk to the XL-320 motors
- 1x set of RS-10 rivets ; or mini rivet set (slightly stronger clear rivets)
1x rivet tool
3D-printed parts: either you printed them yourselves from STL files or they're included in your kit:
- 1x base.stl
- 3x horn2horn.stl
- 3x side2side.stl
- 1x long_U.stl
- 1x short_U.stl
- 1x support_camera.stl
- the tooltips (effectors):
- 1x disk_support.stl this is a laser-cut disk to host your robot (plans here).
- 4x M2.5x6mm screw to fix the Raspberry Pi to the base
- 4x M2x5mm screw to fix the camera
- 4x M2 nuts to fix the camera
- 1x Standoff Male/Female M2.5 10mm to prevent the Pixl board from moving
