Ev3 Turtle Profile



In addition details, in the step talking about legs, I could not make the full description because of some bug in project uploading. Sorry!

is it writtin in lua?

cool! i like ev3!!

to simbox2340: im sorry but i didnt understand what you meant?

if this was built with just one ev3 set, you should enter it into the outofthebox contest!

very cool where did you get a ev3 ultrasonic sensor i dont see one it the set, and sorry for my delayed project my baby brother went into the er on friday and just got back at noon

awesome head and leg arrangements!you rock "dood"

Dude, I love this!!!

amazing with EV3. and can you check out my baryonyx upgrades ?

do u like the ev3 better?

Nice job! Awesome! You did it! Hooray! Those are the four things I have to say about this project, both because of its coolness and uniqueness, and because you already have the EV3! Please post an LDD as soon as Lego Digital Designer updates and follow me back! :D

Cool.. I'm jealous of people who have EV3

It's kinda adorable, really.

I have a turtle :D BTW great project, Its very realistic. 5 stars.

Oh my gosh, dude! This is awesome! I love how small it is, but it still looks great! 5 Stars all the way! P.S. Is it all right if I borrow the design for the legs? I may not use it in a project but if I do, Ill give you full credit.

If you have an NXT, do you think it is better to use the EV3 program or NXT on the NXT?

Awesome! Could you show me how to build it? Rating: *****

really very very cool i love ev3

I'll answer some questions people asked me in comments: first, is Ev3 better than NXT? Answer is that Ev3 is a lot better. Second, where did you get the ultrasonic sensor? Answer is that it is from Ev3 education set. Third, will I make building instructions? Answer is that I will, but I don't know exactly when. And of course, you could use mechanics from this robot on your own creations!

@Karl4123 but how do you get that ultrasonic sencor because it don't looks like a NXT Ultrasonic...

They Are Really Nice :)

@vincent: I made it say that I used NXT ultrasonic sensor because I didn't find Ev3 ultrasonic from the selection box... It should be added tough.


That's really cool! The walking system is very clever!!!

This is a small and simple turtle I made from Ev3. It was one of the first projects I made from Ev3 and which I have uploaded here. In the section below where you can see which brick/motors/sensors I used, I said it used NXT ultrasonic sensor, which is not true, but I didn't find the Ev3 ultrasonic sensor. I will explain the robot further in the next steps, but right now I would like to talk about another thing: I noticed that I will get 50 uploaded projects soon and since you are all awesome, as my 50th project, you will receive a gift. I wont say what it is because then it wont be a suprise anymore!
