How you can make your own cube solver-PT2

Now that we finished one part of the cube solver we move on to the second part where 75% of the project gets over. All of the popsicles together will form 6 pieces like this.

Then when we fit all of them together the cube looked like this.

Once that was over, we sanded all of the pieces.

Quick tip for the people who feel/ and really are “broke”and/or cannot afford or have a sander:

  • Take a simple 10000RPM geared motor.
  • Get a fitting wheel for the motor.
  • Then get a 10000 grit sand paper piece and then paste it on the wheel with super glue.
  • Your simple electrical sander is ready.

So once we finished sanding we painted the product so that it remained beautiful.

Now we tried fitting the pieces to the cube with the center pieces removed. We also tried solving it to make sure that the cube moved fluidly.

Then we made a simple output design so that we had a simple design of the output.

Then we attached wheels to the rods . Once we did that we attached the motors. Then we added geared motor wheels. Then we attached all of the motors to the wheels. Then we cut 3 pieces of cardboard with the following dimensions
39cm*1.5cm

In the next blog the circuit an the finishing will be covered along with the circuit diagram.
We are happy to say that pt3 will be the end of the making of the cube bot. Thank you for reading. Please keep checking this blog so that you know when pt3 is added.

How you can make your own cube solver-PT1

For more than 2 years I have been dreaming to make my own RUBIK’s cube solving bot. Now, I have the materials and the tools to make it possible. There are 2 methods to make the bot solve a cube:

  • Push and twist method
  • Rotate side method.

The 1st method uses the least number of components possible. BUT it takes more time to solve and is more time consuming to code.
So, I used the 2nd method instead where each side is moved individually. This is easier and any motor can be used.
So I joined with my friend and started the bot.
Incase you wish to buy these products, the links are given below.

  • Ice-cream sticks
  • Super Glue
  • Template: Link below!

We first took a bag of ice-cream sticks. Then we made a simple template and cut the pieces. If you wish to replicate the same, the file will be given below. Then we cut the necessary pieces out with the help of the template. Then we stuck them together (see fig:cb1).

Then we made it like a tube. See fig:cb2
 Sorry, Img not availableOnce we did the above step, we tried fitting it to the center piece and check if it was steady. See fig: cb3.

Then we the same few steps listed above and made 6 of those tubes mentioned above. We also kep’t testing to see if each tube fits. See fig:cb4,cb5

Once we finished all of these steps pt1 of our bot was ready.
You can move to to the next blog which will come soon so that you can complete making the cube solving robot. Please keep checking the main page so that you know when the next steps come.
