Post NXT + VEX = REALY LARGE ROBOT!!!
I just bult a robot with both VEX and NXT parts. It's controled by an NXT Brick, uses NXT motors, has a VEX frame with Lego mounts, and has a catapult built with Legos. I will post a pitcure of it when make one.

Does the warboss go *into* the catapult? :) You could fit an army of Orcs in "Da Robopult". WAAAGH!!

holy bible what a size! :shock:
and those wheels really attract me. esp. the ones in front!
am I right, you can attache them to nxt motors?
They look as if you can easily build an omnidirectional drive with them...?

Ford,

Check these out: http://www.holonomicwheel.com/template. ... nomic.html

You'll like these and they're NXT compatible.

Regards,
Xander

:eek: wow, those VEX and "School of Robotics" stuffs are really amazing!
I guess I need to make new plans considering my 6-axis robo arm Image

especially those 2 kits really look fine:

http://www.vexrobotics.com/vex-robotics ... -kit.shtml

I'm curious if they fit to Lego NXT or TETRIX parts and motors ?
Or can the VEX motors be plugged to NXT ports or the HiTechnic motor mux?
How strong are the VEX motors compared to the Lego motors?

The VEX shafts fit losely in the NXT motors, but still catch the shaft key. Btw, an FTC kit is coming for my team, and I will be testing code with that robot. Eventualy, the robot will compete in the FTC, but I have to make it a little smaller. Good thing Tectrix has the parts to make it smaller, and a drive system to replace the NXT motors so that they can power the puck retrieval system.

I don't know. Btw, I'm going to use a modified version of the arm.

The one on the robot. I rebuilt it to use forks instead of a catapult. I also added a shaft with wheels to collect pucks. Still waiting for that kit though...

Edit: Here are the pictures of the arm:
