A Sketchy Idea

IMG_1227

It’s time to start putting ideas to paper for my entry in the Servo City #AHA Challenge. Trying to emulate the grain harvesting functions of a combine harvester should be a snap with #Actobotics. Rather than reaping grain, however, this project will be grinding leaves.

A chassis built from 15-inch aluminum channel should be an ideal platform for holding a 12V sealed lead acid battery, various motors/servos, and an enclosed leaf grinding chamber. The exact placement for each component will be tested with Actobotics STEP files and a desktop CAD program.
