New VEX Robot Building Instructions Available!

with one comment

Tired of the same old robot models? Look no further! We’re proud to present a new set of classroom-ready robot building instructions.

First up, we have the new and improved Squarebot 4.0:

Squarebot 4.0 features:

  • 1 VEX Cortex
  • 2 Shaft Encoders
  • 1 Limit Switch
  • 1 Bumper Switch
  • 1 Ambient Light Sensor
  • 1 Ultrasonic Rangefinder
  • 1 Potentiometer
  • 1 VEX LCD Screen
  • 2 Driving Motors
  • 1 Arm Motor

And second, we’ve augmented our popular Swervebot model with an arm!

The Swervebot has a more slender wheelbase and rear caster, making it more suitable for line tracking and fitting in small spaces. It also features:

  • 1 VEX Cortex
  • 2 Shaft Encoders
  • 2 Bumper Switches
  • 3 Line Tracking Sensors
  • 1 Ultrasonic Rangefinder
  • 1 Potentiometer
  • 1 VEX LCD Screen
  • 2 Driving Motors
  • 1 Arm Motor

Note that having all of the sensors isn’t required to take advantage of these great robot models. Build them using the parts that you have – or just use the instructions for your own inspiration.

These models along with many others can always be found at the Robotics Academy site.
