ServoBlaster and “The Arm”

The next challenge was to try to create a simple robot arm that could be easily cut out on a CAM router and assembled with a glue gun, and yet be sufficient to demonstrate some programming techniques. It actually works rather well although it is a bit lightweight and has a tendency to skip across the table. It also misses the target pieces if someone fiddles with them, but that’s not the fault of the robot…

This robot is made of foamed PVC board, cut on a CAM router and assembled with hot glue.

I’ve uploaded a few files for “The arm” in PDF format but I also have them in wmf and dxf so maybe others can make use of them. However, I can’t upload them here as they’re not supported without me having to pay…
