For PhieldBug and SheetCNC, please see their own websites. PhieldBug is being produced in-house (or at least in-shed 🙂 ) in small numbers, but SheetCNC has been licensed to another company who now build and sell the kit direct.
All the open-source antweight stuff is free to download and – if you have the necessary equipment to 3D print and solder the parts together yourself – then that’s the best way to proceed. Don’t buy it here unless you absolutely have no other way to obtain it. It’s far cheaper – and more fun – to make it yourself.
However, my human pet has had so many requests for antweight bits – especially the antweight electronics – that we’ve made them available to buy. My human is only doing this on a hobby basis, so there’s no proper shop here. Please just get in touch to enquire.
If you’re a hackspace/makerspace/club and you are going to build a complete play-all-day arena with lots of these robots then please just get in touch directly and my human will try to give you some more direct help. And – if you’re close enough – my human might be able to drop in and give you first-hand help to get started building the ‘bots and ‘tronics, if you need it. I don’t make a charge for the loan of my human – it’s purely for the fun of sharing antweights. Because I soooo like to chase them around the floor. Nearly as much fun as a ball of string.
The parts available – on a WIGIG basis – are:
- Partial kit for building the radio receiver and matching transmitter
£20 each (if you buy 6 or more)
£24 each (if you buy 4)
£29 each (if you buy 2)
£35 each (if you buy 1)
Prices include UK delivery.
- If you’re really desperate, my human might be able to offer a set of 3D printed parts for the robots:
Price: £TooMuch. Seriously… just get yourself along to a hackspace/makerspace/fablab and print them there. Where you can do it pretty much for free.
My human definitely won’t be listing anything that you can find elsewhere on ebay. Which means YOU will have to find for yourself all the things like:
- Electronic components for completing the partial Rx/Tx kit
All these parts are fully specified in the downloadable instructions and most of them are easily found from other sellers on ebay.
