Link to the BOM for building the robot just goes to the construct home page

The “shop” link Learn Robotics from Zero - Robotics & ROS Online Courses does not appear to go anywhere other than redirecting to the home page.

The links to the rosbot site now redirect to, but I’m not sure if the kit there is the same as the one used in this class.

If there is an updated BOM / files for machining the body parts myself that would be greatly appreciated. With out these I don’t think the course is able to be followed.

Thank you for pointing out this glitch. We’ll review it and get back to you ASAP.

any update on this? @bayodesegun

I tried to do a bit of internet archeology using the Internet Wayback Machine but it doesn’t look like the relevant pages were indexed. If it would help, I can try to walk through the course and reverse engineer a BOM.

I apologize the delay. We are still working on reviewing these courses based on some changes in the associated links. Please bear with us.

In the meantime, if you happen to come up with any ‘reverse BOM’, please let us know about it. We might learn a few things from it! Thanks in advance.

There was a list on one of the videos, but most items are discontinued or unavailable. Based on what I’ve seen so far in the course, this is the list I am working with. I’ll post an update once I get the parts and assemble them to ensure they match the functionality needed in the course. I can’t post the links to all of them because it will only let me post two links per message.
