The data available for download from March 2:

  • Rapiro main board CAD data for schematic and layout
  • Rapiro LED board CAD data for schematic and layout
  • STL data of the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B Mounting Plate for Rapiro

Rapiro main board and Rapiro LED Board

The Rapiro main board controls 12 servo motors for the neck, arms, and legs of Rapiro. This board is compatible with Arduino and can be developed using Arduino IDE. The Rapiro LED board has LED which lights up Rapiro’s eyes brightly. Rapiro LED board can be controlled by Rapiro board.

Up to now, only schematics of two Rapiro boards have been available in PDF. The newly released data is created using the Eagle CAD software. This CAD data enables Rapiro users alter design of Rapiro boards and make the board.

Raspberry Pi 2 Model B Mounting Plate for Rapiro

The Raspberry Pi 2 Model B Mounting Plate for Rapiro is a plastic part that has been added to Rapiro kit since October 2015. Using this plate in the head of Rapiro will get users ready to install Raspberry Pi 2 Model B.
