New Robot: Triant

After my youngest came to me with some sketches of a new robot, I had to have a go at designing them.

He came up with this idea for a triangle with wheels, that could drive in any orientation, so I designed this:

Unfortunately, after some disasters of 3D printing (mostly down to dodgy filament)

Anyway, after upping the temperature, clearing an blocked nozzle, and some overnight prints, it exists:

And hopefully will appear tomorrow at AWS51

Has anyone successfully changed the pinion on these?

I have attempted this before, but damaged the motor (I presumably bent the rotor shaft slightly, pushing it on)

If you have, how did you do it?

Looking forward to coming on the 1st July!

I've been working on this. A lot!

I still need to wire it up and test the weapon. Might be good to have some armour :roll: , but I need to lose 9g from somewhere!
