Partially Build Constructions
The Earl bot is an example of such a construction. It has an interesting mechanism for grabbing objects. But this is not the first thing you must do with this robot. First, you must finish the construction yourself.
Third, castor, wheel attachment
In the materials section of this video tutorial, we've added different examples of third wheels. You can always use the LEGO Steel Ball, but there are more ways to build castor wheel. Explorer them and decide and what to use.
Building a third wheel for a LEGO Mindstorms EV3 Robot is always an interesting and challenging task. These building instructions are for a third back wheel. You can even notice that there is no wheel involved. It is just LEGO parts but it is one of the most stable ways to build a third wheel. There is some friction, of course, but not that much.
Another building instruction for a third wheel suitable for a LEGO Mindstroms robot. This one is classical. Just a few parts but could be used on a lot of different robots. There is some friction when turning so this one is more suitable if you have to do more straight movements.
Classical third wheel for LEGO Mindstorms robots. This construction comes from the NXT world and the wheel is available in the NXT set.
Third version and a third way to build a third wheel for a LEGO Mindstorms EV3. The instructions are easy to follow and in the end you will be able to attach this wheel to your robot by yourselves.
