So you have new Lynxmotion robots for your classroom, so now you have to build and wire them. I’ve put together 4 videos to help you assemble and wire them. This is not meant to replace the manual, but rather to supplement it. You can find the manual here: PLTW-AL5D-Guide-11. Lots of new stuff in the manual too, especially about how servos work.
Here’s a few short videos to get you going!
How do you wire the AL5D Lynxmotion robot arm for power?
You really have to make sure that you do this right, or you will damage the SSC-32U and/or the power supply, and it will not work. So, start by reading the manual; you can find it Here: PLTW-AL5D-Guide-11. Also, see the video below.
What’s the container project you ask? It’s a project done in CIM class that teaches many different facets of CIM including:
G & M Code, 3D Modelling, Manual machine operations, CNC machining, Secondary processing, Tolerances, Documentation, Mass Production techniques, Assembly operations, Order of operations, Costs of materials, Speeds & feeds….
Just to name a few… Here’s a short video done by one of my participants at the University of Kentucky Core Training Institute that gives a great visual representation of the steps required to go from start to finish. Thanks to Christopher Townsend,@BCHSEngrTechContinue Reading
