CodeRover Install Guide

Updated: Jan 5

⚠️Important note for installing and testing the OFF-ROAD model⚠️


Remember to lubricate the planetary gear system thoroughly and ensure the belts run smoothly on OFF-ROAD BEFORE installing the core!

DO NOT try to push the OFF-ROAD model by hand or drag its tracks/belts by hand while CORE is installed. This may result in the MDF gear rotating on its own on the metal shaft. If the planetary gear systems are too tight or not well-greased, This may also result in the MDF gear rotating on its own on the metal shaft.


If this unfortunate situation happens, feel free to download this laser cut plan or STL model of the big gear for OFF-ROAD.


Remember, all pieces for CodeRover are designed to be replaceable using an SLA printer, a laser cutter, or a 3D printer. If you need a specific piece for CodeRover, please leave a comment for the part you need and we will post that part's 3D file and DWG file in our blog.


Here are B99-91 the OFF-ROAD Big gears and B130 which tend to wear out. So like we mentioned before, please grease them and do not try to spin the tracks by hand when the Core is installed.

⚠️Important note for installing and testing the SUMO model⚠️ When installing the distance sensor, bend the pins away from the ultrasound emitter slightly (away from the SUMO acrylic front cover. ) This will make it easier to connect the wires later.


Here are step-by-step 3D-rendered install guides for CodeRover Sumo, Off-Road, and all the add-ons.


We will update this blog to include a time-lapse video showing how we build it for more complicated builds such as Off-Road and BB-GUN.


Here are all the PDF files. If you find any build steps hard to understand or wish for a more precise build step, please leave a comment.

I have been able to build the Code Rover and the Offroad. Now I am trying to put togeather the other items. The provide info is not very clear. It does not identify what parts are needed and the parts list you do provide do not tie to the items you are building. Why can'y you have a single document that starts of with the parts list for one item and follow that with the steps to build that item.

How do I figure out where screws and other small hardware are in the pdf? There are serveral bags of parts but I can not find the screws that mount the ultrasonic sensor in the first steps of the SUmo! Is there a parts list that identifies what pieces I should have and ties them to the pictures in the assembly steps? This is like a 10,000 piece puzzle!!!

How do I connect the remote control to the sumo? I got 2 extra 2 pcb plates with the controller kit. Do I do anything with them? Thanks for your help in advance.

Hi, when you switch to Code:Bit, you do not need to plug in a Code:Bit for Controller. The controller will automatically pair to the paired Code:Bit that's on the Core.

Could I also get the 3D models for the pieces that make up the Core
