Lego Mindstorms: MindCub3r Robot Build 2019

The kids actually built this robot back in 2016, but Matthias asked a few days ago if he could build it again. It was an easier build for him this time around!

Some of the differences this time:

  • It took Matthias half a day to build the robot then he programmed it yesterday. Last time, it took us two days to build, and Corran was the one who programmed it.
  • He didn’t have to jimmy anything to get it working! Last time, we had to use a piece of cardboard to keep the cube from bouncing around too much. The robot worked properly right from the start.
  • There are still scanning errors here and there, but for the most part, it solves the Rubik’s cube correctly.
  • The type of Rubik’s cube matters! If you can get a decent one, that would work best in the robot. The smoother movement it has the better.

The instructions and programming are located at the same site as 3 years ago: MindCub3r for EV3

The instructions are listed very clearly there so I won’t repeat them here.

You can also learn to solve the Rubik’s cube yourself. You Can Do the Rubik’s Cube is a good place to start!
