Picture of multi-bot Basis
In this Instructable we will show you how to build our multibot basis to build our other multibot based robots. It is very simle. It is great because you are not limited to our projects, but you can make your own. (Note the picture above is just an example of using the parts, not what will be accomplished in this project)

Step 1: Materials/Tools

Materials:
screw driver
plexiglass
2.5 cm X 20 cm of aluminum
Arduino

Tools
ruler
drill
grinder
band saw

Step 2: Cut the Metal

Cut the metal to (2.5 cm X 20 cm ) with the band saw. So that you get a medium sized piece to drill holes into.

Step 3: Drill mounting holes

Drill holes 0.3625 inches apart so that you get the correct size for a servo to be mounted on. 

Step 4: Drill Holes into the PlexiGlass

First mark with a pen or sharpie the location on the holes of the Arduino are to mount it. Then use the Drill press/drill to drill holes into the plexiglass where you indicated to mount the Arduino.

Step 5: Arduino to Plexiglass

Now you put screws in and screw it into the plexiglass.

Step 6: DONE!

Your basis is done and is now ready to be used for multiple projects that involve fun and games. It is very helpful , yet is very simple to craft. Thanks, Newton Labs team! (Credit to Starbot for use of their facilities)
Can't figure out what you ARE doing here, mounting an Arduino on plexi ???

Yes, we are mounting the Arduino to the plexi glass After we drilled the holes to mount it with. (In step 2 it is only the materials, dont worry too much about the pictures. Regards, Newton Labs Team
But WHY? What is the point of the instructable ??
simonfrfr (author)  Lectric Wizard2 years ago
Its to have the parts to build robots based off of this later. Example Waveinator. We have built multiple others its just we have alot on our hands at the moment to do.
