#Antdroid Hardware Components Antdroid is a robot designed to be 3D printed.
It is designed in CATIA V5r21 with a full parametric design, witch allows you to easily resize and adapt the model to your own servos or hardware requirements.
Unfortunately, CATIA is not a free opensource program, so if you want to modify it, you will need a license. We would like to port it to a free software solution but, at the moment, it is not posible.
3D printable parts
All the parts have been exported to stl format, so you can easily print them.

WARN: To date, Raspberry Pi(RPi) B+ and RPi 2 have been released. Due to design specifications, the ***AntDroid frame can ONLY hold RPi B (NOT model B+)***. This is due to the place of the holes that the RPi board have. In fact, RPi B+ and RPi 2 have more holes (4 instead 2). In future upgrades we are going to fix this problem releasing a base to hold the new RPi. Meanwhile, RPi B+ is not supported. NOTE: Now we added a new base to support RPi 2.
|LiPo low voltage alarm||1|
|PS3 Dualshock controller||1|
|USB hub external power supply||1|
WARN: The SBEC doesn't alert of a low battery charge. It is highly recommendable to add a voltage alarm to the LiPo battery in order to not damage it.
The Raspberry Pi B has only two USB ports. One of them is going to be used by the serial connection with the Arduino MEGA. This fact leaves us two connectivity options:
If you want to use them at the same time you will have to buy a USB hub with external power supply because the RPi can not power several devices with a high power consumption.
