Robot Bootcamp Primer: Materials and Manufacturing

Robot Bootcamp is our newest series and a great place to get started in the world of robotics.
In this primer video Matt and Andrew talk about different materials and manufacturing methods associated with them. They mention different kinds of plastics, metals, and when to use them for different kinds of robots. If you’ve ever wondered about creating custom parts for your robots and projects, this video is a great place to start.

Future videos will cover basic robotic concepts, common pitfalls, general practices and more!

    Hi I am a amateur when it comes down to robotic engineering, however I love to use your lessons to help me learn more and further into the engineering and development of robotics. I was just wondering if you could start doing a small key concepts and words video as sometimes I find myself not understanding some of the words and units of measurements that you use, for example episode 3 you are talking about actuators and you start to talk about PWM signals, this throw me off for a while as I had to search Wikipedia for a long winded explanation. I was just hoping you might be able to create a database of key units of measurements and key words/concepts that would help amateurs like me. Thank you
