Tetrix Prime Project – Part I

TetrixPrimeFrom: Pitsco Education

This kit is one of the robot building platforms where few tools are needed. Aluminum construction beam components combined with composite joints and plastic rivets, brass axle bearing bushings, fully RC ready with a TETRIX 4-Channel transmitter and matching receiver and Servo Motors. The kit also comes complete with a builder’s guide which contains plans for building 3-4 basic robotic platforms. Each build teaches different construction facets and each successive platform builds on the previously learned facets. I am also looking forward to taking this kit to the next level.

Project Plan:

The addition of advanced mechanisms and a microcontroller to allow for sensors and autonomous controls.


Fully functional base platform complete and operational in RC mode.

Next Steps:

Microcontroller & Advanced Mechanisms

Reader Input:

I will do my utmost to make progress on this project by next issue and report on what’s going on with it… the successes and failures. I sometimes learn more from a failure than from a success so let’s see how much of each we find. If something strikes you about this project… please email me at with what you think. I look forward to hearing from you!
