  1. I used  Move face features to get the sheet metal part to have nice round numbers.

  2. I used standard(ANSI) fasteners. Feel free to use the metric equivalent.

  3. Equivalent chassis can be 3D printed instead.

  4. Imported parts that you will probably need to replace with your own:

    1. Wheel

    2. Servo motor

    3. Arduino uno

    4. Low profile castor

  5. You will need either a motor shield or replace the servos with 5v DC motors to make the project move.

  6. Project can have an Ultrasonic rangefinder or a Joystick for more learning opportunities.
