Hi, I'm struggling with programming this thing. Do you have some example how to make it work?

Try this, my last comment got flagged for moderation somehow. It needs wiring pins adjusted for the current diagram. I will post more in depth code soon as my students are done w/ this assignment.

Thanks a mill. I missed this post somehow. Anyway, from the other one I was able to manage it and now my rover is working like a charm. I didn't expect it will be so much fun. Now I ordered IR sensors to see how well it can follow the line.

Great! I can't wait to see photos and video if you can post a "make" of this Thing.

I have some code I can't post yet because of my students possibly stumbling across their homework assignment, but the basic should in theory be same as the other stepper variant code - https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2778904 has a link to https://github.com/wtlx/smars-28byj-48 although his wiring may be slightly different and would need to be accounted for depending on how you wired your robot https://quackerlatuet.wordpress.com/2018/02/21/selbstgedruckter-roboter/

I have this code also for the line follower but it would need to be rewritten a bit for the wiring diagram shown on this thing.

any specific issues or questions let me know how I can help.

Looking good! But how would I go printing just a single piece off that build plate?

Also see this openscad file I just posted for the wheel source file https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3208042

You can use 'split' to break the stl print bed layout into separate parts and just keep the parts you want. RepetierHost has that feature as well as most other programs I've used.
