Take a motorcycle and start removing parts. You get a chopper. Like this one. It is built with LEGO Mindstorms EV3. It has one large and one medium motor. It could kind of turn, but moving forward with it is very funny. There is a "more sports like version" available at Ninja - Sports Motorcycle built with LEGO Mindstorms EV3
Currently, the motorcycle has no sensors. It's more of an exercise in construction, but if you attach sensors and think of a way to attach them send us a picture.
Join the course A robot a "day" keeps the questions awake where we will further discuss the motorcycles, how to build them and what tasks to accomplish with them.

The goal of these building instructions is to build a simple LEGO Mindstorms EV3 robot without wheels. You should then think of yourself how exactly to add the wheel. Which wheels would you use on the front? How are you going to build the third wheel? Here are for example a few recommendations on building the third wheel - 1, 2, 3, 4
Later on you can expland this construction with a grabber as demosntrated here.

Building instructions for a LEGO Mindstorms Robot that cleans the landing site when landing on a different planet. Built from an EV3 set it is a perfect simple tank robot with continuous tracks for lifting and moving things. Basically cleaning.

Building instructions for the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 Catapult. The robot has a motor, a clutch to control it for manual shooting and a touch sensor for automatic loading. The bottom base is removed which means the Catapult could not be turned around. Nevertheless, the baseless robot is small enough to be built in class.

Instructions for a simple Crane construction built from LEGO Mindstorms EV3 set. In order to operate properly, you need to add weight at the back of the jib. The most interesting part of the robot is the design of its hand, so examine it closely.

Building instructions for this LEGO Mindstorms EV3 robot base that could be used in FIRST LEGO League, World Robotics Olympiad and other robotics competitions

There is a lot of physics and math involved when learning with LEGO Mindstorms EV3 robots. It is generally "difficult" to include them directly during classes because students are coming for "something funnier" and at the same time, they could be of different ages. But Inertia is a pretty common topic that is quite easy to introduce to students, especially with a robot.
The robot moves and stops. What will happen with the cargo when the robot stops? Naturally, the cargo will continue moving and this is dangerous. For how long, what would be the energy? All these are things that could be discussed with this robot.
The robot is not completely finished because you have to finish it and decide on the wheels to be used.

It sparks. It's sparkling. Well, the goal of this LEGO Mindstorms building instruction is to spark the imagination when the base of the construction is very simple. Just two motors with the brick above them and one of the most classic ways to attach them together - with angled beams.
The construction could use EV3 or NXT wheels, so chose wisely. As a robot chassis base, it is suitable for all kinds of extensions. An interesting thing is the motors are attached to each other with a frame which is getting very popular in the EV3 world.

The first thing every student wants to build is a LEGO Mindstorms EV3 robot with treads. Well, we have one. Take a look. It's really funny.
Can you make it move? Send us a video or picture in the comment section below.

The central axle of the robot is most of the time the most important. The robot moves forward and does things with this axle. It is important to learn to you could extend such axles, and change the level and position of the extensions.
This is a LEGO Mindstorms EV3/NXT robot attachment.

FLL 2017: Attachment To Accomplish The Hydrodynamics Fountain (07) And Faucet (18) Robot Game Missions
Two missions in one. This attachment accomplishes the Hydrodynamics Fountain and Faucet missions from the FIRST LEGO League Hydrodynamics 2017-2018 competitions. The attachment shows a really interesting and widely used approach of a single attachment that is used for two, three and even more missions. This is a standard practice for many of the advanced teams, especially those that reach the finals. The based of the robot is the LEGO Box Robot Three With Large Wheels and Thee light sensors and one Gyro

We have to admit. This is quite an interesting missions. There is a Manhole cover and it must be turned upside down. Well, the robot must turn it. Again LEGO Box Robot Three With Large Wheels and Thee light sensors and one Gyro is used as a base for the Robot.

Building instructions for a LEGO EV3 steering car. We use two large motors, so that the rear wheels will be driven independently by a separate motor. For your convinience, you can use the EV3-G MyBlock for moving the Boomer.

Following the Spy Bot, we have this new Spy Vehicle. Yes, yes it is using an ultrasonic sensor.
The building instructions are for a robot base that looks like a car but is not exactly a car and has a strange shape. Just like spy vehicles - a car, but not only a car and not just a car.

Here is another great example of a large multi-purpose attachment used in FIRST LEGO League competitions. This one is specifically for the 2017-2018 Hydrodynamics competitions and is doing a number of missions. (01) Pipe removal, (06) Water Treatment and (08) Manhole cover.
The attachment consists of two parts. The first part is placed on the robot while the second part is in front of the robot and the robot pushes it. While working on the field the robot leaves the second part on the Water Treatment plant and when returning back collects it back and returns to base.
The goal of the attachment is for you to build it and experiment with it with the existing field. Use Box Robot 2 as a robot base on which to add the attachments.

This is a LEGO Mindstorms EV3 competition robot used in FIRST LEGO League Season 2018-2019 Into Orbit following a Box Robot principle. The robot has passed through the following competitions in Brazil:
Local competition in scho
National: Rio de Janeiro
The robot is an modular construction that you could easily build upon. It is not entirely "clean" as it has parts of it not optimezed as in the other box robots, but it is a nice example and a great work from the FLL team.
