SMARS V4

3D model description

Finally, the SMARS V4 is here!

The main features of this version, are the top closed batteries case, the RGB LED frame, the power switch and the new wheel’s design.

WARNING THIS DESIGN NEEDS WELDINGS!

V4 is assemblable in 2 different configurations:

-V4_a Arduino nano based, this version offer an embedded design with no exposed electronics parts. Personally I suggest this version if you want to use your SMARS in a single modality (rc car for example). This version is designed to host also a Bluetooth or Wi-Fi module in it, so it’s practical for remote applications.

-V4_b Arduino UNO based, this version is more practical for continuous changes of the robot purpose, connections are easier to modify and also uploading the sketches doesn’t need any disassembly.

In the “documentation” folder, you will find the assembly instructions and the connection diagrams for both the versions. To add Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, simply connect the module to pin 0, pin 1, 5V and GND, there are a lot of tutorials online, google the name of the module for more information.

Maybe you’re asking yourself why this version is not free, here there are the main motivations:
-This version is more an aesthetic upgrade then a functional upgrade, SMARS V1 can basically do the same things so not buying it, will not limit your possibilities in this project.
- I discovered that some people are selling my design and that is not really nice, I spent hours of my personal time to design this system and knowing that people are not respecting my licenses hurts me.
- Not enough people are using my affiliate links, so I don’t have the budget for make big improvement and design mods with new features.

Hope you will understand, I’ll continue to share my designs for free but sometimes I’ll release some paid design, just to keep my projects alive.

Thanks and I hope you will enjoy this new model!

What a great design. Could you show me the way you make the documentation of this design? (How to draw the images?) Thank you.

Paidfor this. This looks beautiful! Let us know how else we can support you. I am looking to build something to get my son interested in robotics, and this is perfect. Perhaps you could release an electronics kit and some scenario based guides (e.g. a guide for line following) that we can pay for?

If you make an educational kit, you could also try selling direct to schools and what not.
