When Using Dynamixels, Ez-builder Has A Tendency To Move Servos In The Wrong Ord

Sudo claims to have checked these sources:

whenever I try to move my (upcoming) humanoid, sometimes EZ-Builder will move completely different servos or not finish the movement before continuing on. I don't know if this is because of the dynamixel speed bug or something else, but it happens more often when the EZ-B has to move a larger amount of servos (about 6 or so seems to really screw up stuff) whatever is happening seems to happen even worse when running off of a slower computer (like my surface).

just to let you know, my humanoid IS running off of a 12v battery pack and has newly replaced servos. I don't this is a problem on the robot's end.

I have found a few conversations, tutorials and activities that may help with your question. Take a look at these links. I've sorted them by what I believe to be most relevant but that is not always the case as I'm still learning.

Also, consider reviewing the Learn section for informative lessons and activities. Check it out!


It's been a problem with the dynamixel itself - not ezbuilder. Something I have been wrestling with for a while. It has to do with their communication protocol attempting to write a response while other commands are being written to other servo addresses - I beleive. I have included a "disable response messages" in a few ezbuilder releases ago, but that hasn't seem to have an effect.

This upcoming week I will be releasing a newer version with another change that hopefully overcomes this issue


thanks DJ, i didn't know that it was a known issue Grin


Also DJ- my dynamixels are having trouble pushing up the robot, but I know for a fact that these servos are more than powerful enough to complete a pushup for half of a robot. Does this have to do with that communication problem or could it be i have another faulty servo?


It would not be from the bug. Its less of a bug and more of a design flaw overlooked in the servos. Do not consider it a bug Smile it's how their communication protocol works. I'll over come it soon Grin
