Does anyone have a complete parts list for all the DB1 episodes?

Thanks.

I don’t. I started creating a cart with the parts on Servo City’s website and I kinda stopped after hitting the $500 range and realizing that I probably need to talk to the boss (wife) before ordering anything. I’m estimating somewhere between $500-$1000 for the parts.

Do you have a parts list?  $500 - $1000 is a bit much for me.  I wonder how much is hardware, like the channeling, motors, plexiglass, etc.   And how much is boards and sensors?  And how much is in microcontrollers? 

I know there's an Arduino Mega on it along with two Atmega chips on a homemade board, along with two motor controller boards.  But what else is on the parts list?  So the price you quote include a Raspberry Pi 4 and a Jetson nano?   How about the LIDAR, and any cameras?

I haven't see a detailed itemized parts list yet.  Or even a rough 'ball-park'parts list for that matter.

@robo-pi, @moneer81, @eggers

Here is a list of items I sourced at ServoCity (although one item was at Amazon).  These prices were good in May of last year and have probably changed since.  I know for a fact the spur gear motors with encoders have nearly doubled in price since I bought them.  This is a PDF, but if you'd like the XLS spreadsheet or a CVS file I can accommodate.  This is only the frame with the exception of the gear motors and controllers, so a lot more goes into it and has been added to my DB1.  I just didn't keep the list going.  Maybe because I don't want to know in the end what I have invested! 🤣

I didn't take a calculator to it, but just glancing over the list it appears to be close to $250 already just for the base parts.   I guess this isn't a lot considering the convenience that all these parts offer.   Just bolt it all together and you're up and running.  That part is nice. 😊 

But for me, I'll need to make the bulk of it from plywood and wood screws.   And then see what I can scrounge up in terms of a couple motors salvaged from junk I can find on something from a thrift store.  🤣 

I need to get that $250 down to more like 25 bucks. 😎

There is a total at the top of the "Price" column, it's just not labeled as such.  I seem to remember $403.00 or something like that!  🙄

So much for just scanning over the list briefly. 😮 

That's way more that I can afford to put into a single robot.   But that's just me, and I confess to being in a financial category that is definitely less than "middle class". 😎 

I don't mean to be complaining here.  The good news is that I can up my costs from $25 t0 $40 in keeping with being ten times under cost. 😎 

Look out Thrift stores here I come!   Sometimes you can find some pretty interesting materials to salvage at a thrift store.   I bought some roller skates recently just for the wheels.   Nice bearings!
