APPLICATIONS TO RAPID PROTOTYPING SCALE USING LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT EDUCATIONAL KIT
The paper is dedicated to the succinct presentation of the mechatronic concepts needed to promote innovation, creativity and interdisciplinarity. The main objectives of the paper aim to familiarize them with the concept of rapid prototyping scale and mechatronic modules, with components LEGO Mindstorms. The first application is made using the course-related instructions. In the second application, we performed a functional replica of a given structure (with a minimum of elements), without detailed installation instructions.
