Using a Worm Gear Box
Using a Worm Gear Box
In this RoboByte, we're talking about the TETRIX® MAX Worm Gear Box. The Worm Gear Box brings durability and power through specialization to your robot. Utilizing a 4:1 gear ratio for slow and smooth rotational motion, this gear box minimizes backlash and greatly reduces the chance of a back-driving gear motor. It's an efficient way to protect the motor and hold a position can be held even when power is not applied. All-metal construction for durability and power.

#ThisIsSTEM
#ThisIsSTEM
We believe STEM is more than academic knowledge; it’s what happens during a project, a group discussion, a presentation, or an activity. It’s the challenges, failures, and a-ha moments. It’s the place where and the activity through which today’s students can develop and practice skills that will prepare them for success in a world they’ll live in that we can’t yet describe. Student success . . . #ThisIsSTEM

TETRIX PRIME with EV3 Module
TETRIX PRIME with EV3 Module
Tim Lankford gives you all the details about our new EV3 Module. Yes, we’ve made our TETRIX® PRIME system completely compatible with EV3. This pairing means you can create robots that are bigger, stronger, more complex, and more real world. Simply use your EV3 Brick, sensors, motors, and LEGO® elements and combine them with the PRIME metal system and watch your students accomplish feats that cannot be done with plastic alone. Plus be on the lookout for the next RoboBench video where we'll discuss the all new TETRIX PRIME and EV3 Curriculum Pack with 30+ hours of content that delivers the tools you need for more building, more coding, and more learning.

Sorter Build | PRIME with EV3
Sorter Build | PRIME with EV3
Students will expand on their experience from the Getting Started Activities. Combine TETRIX PRIME and EV3 to build a sorting robot with an articulated arm and gripper that can rotate 360 degrees. Then they can advance to program it to move the gripper to a known position to pick up and grasp an object and, ultimately, complete a program that performs a sorting action to a different location, based on information obtained from a color sensor. Students will find all the details the curriculum’s first Complete Activity.

Security Door | PRIME with EV3
Security Door | PRIME with EV3
With TETRIX PRIME and EV3 components, students will build a unique stationary robot that acts as a security door with a two-phase access procedure. The objective is to complete a program that will wait for access to be demanded through the interaction or sensors and then to wait and respond based on sensor data by activating one or both phases of the procedure. Details found in the curriculum’s final Complete Activity.
