Vibrobots – Milton Abbey School
These vibrobots were sent in by James Ratcliffe of Milton Abbey School following a recent year 8 taster activity. Rather than provide students with our complete vibrobug kit or fizzbit module, they got a coin cell power board kit and a vibrating motor, and got to work on their own designs.

Question:

How does the product come packaged?

Answers:

  • Posted by Michael Lockhart on Wednesday, 8 July 2015

    The product is supplied un-built, however we do have a product that comes supplied with a built PCB. The PCB and components are supplied in a grip seal bag, and the Perspex parts are supplied on a panel, these just need to be carefully removed from this. The items are then placed into a small cardboard box for protection.

Question:

Hi in the description of the bug it mentions a cutting data file for the acrylic body. Where/how do you download this. Thanks Phil

Answers:

  • Posted by Aaron Sturman on Friday, 16 May 2014
    In the product description where it says "The cutting data files can be downloaded here." click on the highlighted word "here" and it will download a .zip file with various formats of the drawings.
