16. Friends

In the video, watch how TurtleBot3 can be assembled and reassembled with a few additional parts. The waffle plate which is the biggest part among TurtleBot3 components can be assembled in various sizes and shapes, thanks to its diverse holes for bolts and nuts.


With this extendible component, handful of TurtleBot3 friends with various characteristics could be built. You can create a totally new robot that is never seen before.
