Bigger Buttons for the Pololu Zumo!

Pololu Zumo with Bigger Buttons!

The Pololu Zumo 32u4 is an excellent educational robotics platform, but its buttons proved difficult to manipulate for some of the students in my classes. I designed these bigger buttons as an add-on for the Zumo. My hope is that students will find these buttons easier to access.

I want bigger buttons!

.stl files for printing out your own button adapters are available at the project GitHub repository. In addition to the five printed parts, you will also need some #2-56 hardware to attach the add-on to the robot.

How can I contribute?

If you have ideas for how to improve these designs, please download the Fusion 360 files available in the project repository. If you make something you like, let us know so we can improve our design.

    The models worked very well on my Prusa i3MK3;-) I let many kids play with my Zumo rover and that part will make it a bit easy;-)
