Can you shrink this down to be a desktop vacuum? I would use it instead of the Anki Vector or https://www.amazon.com/Hog-Wild-Robo-Vacuum-Colors/dp/B000GYUXWK

Hi, awesome work. Can you share the solidworks file for all of the components in the model including the motors, wheels and vacuum pump?

Hi, really good job !!
Can you share your SolidWorks files please ?

Guys, heads up the code is very well commented and easy to reverse engineer and extend on - so far I have managed to work out how to control the motor speeds to ensure it track straight in forward mode, activate the second push button and adjust the move algorithms from only turning right when using avoidance function to turning left or right depending on the sensors .

Great project not only for the printing but an introduction into the Ardunio and the code.

Has anyone been able to split this yet?

I split it so could build it on JGaurora A3S

sweet, can I download your STL files?

What Printer are you using? bed size etc? I hot glued mine together and so far has been just fine

flashforge creator pro print size 8.8 x 5.7 x 5.9 inches

NM I used Slic3r to cut the deal.

has anyone done any customization to this so it could be printed on smaller printers?

I am currently working on a remix for a smaller printer.

You will be my wife’s hero!! Lol

Very nice project!
How many grams of material ( PETG in my case ) are needed to print all models?

Hi, Thanks.
I don't have the exact number now, but less than a kg.
You can use Cura to upload the model and it will give you an approximate material weight and distance.

Great project. Love to make one but I just got the quotes to have it printed. $1200.00 ouch.

Ouch yes, 3d printing is kind of expensive in some countries, but you can try to order from another country or buy a 3d printer, mine cost 699 dlls, half your quote. But yes, it would be much better if you have your own 3d printer.

Hello nice project!!! Where to download the code for arduino?

Hi, please refer to the instructable, it is on the step 18. Cheers!

Hey, so sorry. On my phone I can't see the arduino code. I have to use the desktop version and it's OK. Thanks a lot for your robot

how much for this project?

I have just sent you a message.

Looks amazing! Do you have a video of it working?
