Step 9: Assembly

Can Harvey be scaled?
<p>Hi there, how many straws do you use for a single robot?</p><p>I'm sneaking one by one from mc donald's xD</p>
<p>(=D..</p><p> (Drooling In amazement)</p>
<p>My version. Followed the instructions most of the way, but deviated to add some character. Also didn't have the correct elastics which I found out was pretty important.</p><p>Great instructable by the way.<br></p>
<p>Thanks for sharing! I was hoping that more people would show me their work. I had a lot of fun with this. Send me your address and I'll send you some of the elastics and some Harvey's straws on the house. Will you be attempting Harvey 2.0?</p>
<p>I'll definitely attempt Harvey 2.0 and the mods that go with these. It was a great little fun Sunday afternoon project and even if the builds might look a bit complex, once you get the gist of it, it flows quite easily.</p><p>I did a quick write up here, but not much more than the photo I've already posted: <br></p><p>http://thegeekbiker.wordpress.com/2014/01/19/a-robot-of-foam-and-straws-strawbots/</p>
<p>Upgraded! </p><p>Added some fancy rubber bands and....</p><p>Designed and printed straw-stoppers with me old 3D printed.</p>
awesome, but even more if I can make these!!!!!!
awesome, but even more if I can make these!!!!!!
is there an easy way to change the scale of the PDF. I'm trouble making it larger even if it means 2 sheets of paper
how many Harvey's straws do you need
Excellent work for an excellent teacher congratulations awesome robot. <br>
These are very cool. <br> <br>So, whats magic about the Harvey's straws? <br>Can you suggest a more generic alternative for those of us unlucky enough to live on a planet with no Harvey's nearby?
The harvey's straw is slightly larger in diameter than a standard 1/4&quot; drinking straw. This allows it to slide over top of the other straw, specifically for knee joints. Find this combination of straws and you're in business. If you're still coming up empty tell me what planet you're from and I'll mail you some of the magical straws.
Where do you teach? <br>Hi I am mr.cardboard and I forgot to introduce my self. I would like to know if ou want to see some of my mod ideas. Also do you need a partner for some of your STRAWBOTS projects because I can make some and send them to you for free.
McDonald's Straws work well!
