PCBWAY make high quality prototyping PCBs for people all over the world. Try it for your self and get 10 PCBs for just $5 at PCBWAY with very great quality, Thanks PCBWAY. The Robadge#1 that I developed for use in this project uses PCBWAY PCB services. In this instructables, I will show you how to build Robadge#1 LED Blinking Robot Badge. Let's get started!



?The leg hole for the resistor on the PCB is designed for a size 1/6w resistor, but you can also use a size 1/4w resistor by bending the leg on one side then insert to PCB board as shown in the picture.

You can insert other components such as Transistors, Capacitors and Switch following the sign on the PCB board.

Insert the LEDs, ensuring the short legs are towards the centre of the board. 



Turn the board over and solder all legs components.?


Using your cutters it’s time to snip the legs from the components. You should wear eye protection as the legs can fly off!


Place the battery holder into the provided holes from back of PCB.


Turn the board over again then solder the legs in place.


Using your pliers hold the pin back onto the centre of the pad. Tin your soldering iron then hold the tip down with the pliers heat the pin back and hold the iron in place until you notice the solder flow to the edge.


?Insert the battery writing side facing out.


Write the name you want, using permanent marker on the white area below the PCB.


Slide the switch lever to the right ON position.


?Hopefully you enjoy your Robadge#1. If you do, please share your makes, share the link, like and subscribe Instructables & Youtube. As always, if you have any questions please let me know!
