[ 5/22/23 - 5/26/23 ] The Circuit Board is here.
On Tuesday, the circuit board for the robot arm arrived. I have spent the week so far soldering parts on and testing the board. It's been a long process but we're finally reaching the end.
The new design of the board was created to attach directly to the ATMega2560 we're using to communicate with the arm, almost like a makeshift shield.
The board is mostly soldered at this point in time, with the exception of the two buttons (seen right above this line) and their resistors.
The cat I made also came in handy for testing that all the motors worked with the new circuit board (mostly the detaching head.)
Oh right. Monday. Uh. I made a frog.
