After doing Kawal's tutorial bot I decided to move onto something slightly different. This is my attempt at a robotic arm with 4 degrees of freedom (all servo rotation).
First thing I have done is plan the structure of the arm. It is going to be built from MDF (all I had, others with better tools would probably use plexiglass or something to effect). It has a base which turns and then will have a 3 other servos to control the other dimensions.
It is based on this arm being sold by lynxmotion for around $250
-plan and cut out main structure
-build the base
-code (inverse kinematics )
-maybe add sensors??
How I aim to fit it together. The pencils are used instead of long doweling
I will add some more photos as I go along. Wish me luck!
