CAD Drawings of my B9

The CAD drawings that so many of you have asked me about are rolling in now. This should allow you to have them made at your local machine shop or allow you to make them yourself. There are over 100 drawings and at $25.00 a page you can figure out how much it costs me to have them drawn up.
As soon as I have all of them I will send out an alert to the group. I think this is the first step in getting standardized drawings that fit with established club produced parts. As I have mentioned in previous club posts, these plans are for club use only. If you use them then you are agreeing that you are using them for yourself and will not take these plans to form anycommerical or financial venture without my expressed written permission. I own these designs. They are copyrighted. I am spending a lot of money having these professionally drawn for the benefit of club members. Please do not abuse this gift! I will accept donations for them but I will not demand a charge unless you require them to be physically sent out or mailed.  Let me know what you think about them and if you require something that I may not have.

  1. Hi Jerry,

    I am new to your site and noticed that you have CAD drawings available and would be released soon, has this happened yet?

    I am a former member of Mike’s B9 robot builder’s club and have just rejoined since I now have time again to dedicate to my robot. I live not too far from you (Garland, Tx) and saw that I missed your robot build off. It looked like it was a blast and I will watch when you have the next one. I am an electrical engineer (recently layed off from Texas Instruments) but fortunately I recently found employment at Rockwell Collins so now I have some extra money to spend on my robot again.

  2. The plans I have designed and drawn up are available on an individual basis for non commercial single use only. I own the copyright on them so if they are for your use only and wont be used in any way for commerical money making use then you are most welcome to them. Lets discuss what you are wanting to do and I can forward what I have if it will suit your needs.

  3. Hi Jerry,

    I can assure you that the designs would be for myself only and really appreciate you making them available. I finished the brain section and used LEDs since my B9 will be battery operated. I am now looking at the bubble lifter and like what you implemented on yours. I also plan to have actuators for the arms believe that you had to redo a portion of your lifter in order to accomondate. As an engineer, I am getting this feeling that I am going to have to redesign because I am not thinking about how a subsystem that I am working on affects other subsystems. It is a very complicated design.

    I had mentioned now that I am employed again, I wanted to make a vendor purchase, it helps to motivate me when I see new parts for the B9. I have the body from Mike J and was looking to purchase the neon and backplate. I saw your info on powering the 12 row versus the 16 row but noticed that you only sell the 12 row. Is that the most common or accurate one to use?

    Thanks again Jerry.


  4. Sorry, I see that it is Craig that sells the 12 row neon (not you) and you mentioned that he only sells the 12 row neon now.


  5. Hi Jerry,

    The section that I could use drawings for is the radar and radar gear. I have already purchased the collar but wanted to do the radar myself. I havr a rotozip saw and a local source for the plexiglass, so thats a start. I will be implementing a bubble lifter and like what you designed so that may be a purchased rather than a make part.

  6. Hi Jerry, I am a B9 fan living in Scotland UK. A full size robot is beyond me financially but I wish very much to make a scale model. Please could you advise me wich out of all the blueprints I have seen are the most accurate?
