Please note these assembly instructions are for a 20 DOF robot. This kit includes the metal brackets for the normal robot with 16 DOF only.
To assemble this metal brackets kit (on a 16 DOF robot) follow the instructions on the manual above with the following considerations:
Skip steps 5 to 17 (there are two steps 17; skip the first and perform the second). Make sure you assemble servos 0 and 5 in the their normal position for 16 DOF (see the printed manual you received with your robot).
On steps 34 to 66 (arm assembly) make sure to adapt to your 16 DOF accordingly. You may need to consult the printed manual that came with your Robobuilder.
This kit is also compatible and can be assembled in conjunction
with the optional
Kit which adds 2 additional DOF to the Robot.
In case you use the Hip Pivot Kit then follow steps 5 to 17 as well.
