The video Pi-Bot 6: (https://youtu.be/lbehNURwNcw?list=PL1-sfirZuJ5JP40dsdfjbtM5lDY8i5Vwi) says to put the breadboard on the lower right of the top of the chassis. It has a note that says V1.5 goes on the lower Left. The Version 2.0 Users Manual on page 43 says "Mount the breadboard to the lower left section of the body, as shown in Figure 5.2." So Left or Right or is it not important?
Hi jhomeyer, Welcome to the Pi-Bot forum. Looking at the downloads page www.stemcenterusa.com/pi-bot/downloads-/ it says that the 1.5 documentation is for Pi-bot Kits purchased during and prior to August 2015, and the Version 2 documentation was released in September 2015, and is therefore to be used for purchased after this date. I do see from the picture on the front of the version 2 documentation, which has the breadboard on the lower left, that most of the connecting wires do not pass over the STEM Board as is the case if the bread board is put on the lower right side. So it is upto you.
Hi there, One decisive point is the length of the wire that connects between the power switch and the breadboard. In the 1.5 version of the documentation in the section "Wiring and Programming Your Basic Pi-Bot" look at figure 2.30 where it shows the breadboard fitted to the bottom right of the chasis. You will also see that the power lead for the breadboard is connected to the power switch terminal. this lead is fairly short, about 2 inches, 5 CM. In the version 2 of the documentation go to page 58 and look at figures 6.1 and 6.2, here you will see the version 2 power lead, to me it looks about 15 CM or 6 inches long. So first you need to look for this lead, and if it the short one, then the breadboard must be fitted on the lower left, if it is the longer version then you can fit it on either side. As I said before the choice is yours.
