This is my first time to try Lego Digital Designer so i have tried my best to build instructions like the robot i built , i was inspired by the dancing robot in mission 2 and a YouTube video of a drummer robot but they didn't provide instructions to build it so i thought why not build it myself with a little bit of imaginations and creativity so here is the result
The video that i was inspired to build my own robot fromLego Digital Designer
i tried my best to make it look the same as the robot i build but i couldn't attach the 2 parts of the robot together so i am providing a picture of the link between them
Here i inserted the base of drums behind the robot's front leg and added the grey part in the picture as a link to attach both parts as one
also in the instructions this is not a big issue you will figure it out yourself the red part was not attached in the LDD but the real robot it should look like this
the code is based off from mission 2 but with some modifications as i needed it to work with 2 motors play at random time
