3dprinted Robot Mower – part 1

 

3dprinted Autonomous Robot Mower – part 1

Welcome to part one of me trying everything I can to not have to mow…. After avoiding mowing for a bit I needed to find a better solution.

In my slightly concussed state I came up with it. A 3dprinted robot mower!!

Using printed and electrical parts from http://www.reprap-windturbine.com/index.php?id=20&L=1 I am building my mower.

My firmware will tie in to my home automation system so the system will control mowing times based on times/weather conditions ect.

 

 

My first 3d Printer (part 1)

I have been looking for a 3d printer for a long time.  Finally had a chance to get one so I did some looking around and found a great price for a prusa i3 kit.

The kit I got was folgertech.

The price has dropped from $299 to $289 just since I got my kit.  So the price is insanely cheap.  Especially for a US based company.

So I order said printer along with a display.

The kit shows up after almost 2 excruciating weeks.  I knew I had to build it so this wasn’t a surprise.
