Update: I have published instruction on Instructables: http://www.instructables.com/id/Tertiarm-3d-Printed-Robot-Arm/ and add new parts!

This is a 3D printed robot arm based on Ikea Tertial lamp.
I use lamp because it has very good kinematic with using springs to unload servos.
I cut all beam, but you can use any length.
It has 5 DOF and use 5 standart size servo.
You can find list of all components and printing part in BOM.
I haven't done any instruction yet, but I will be happy to answer all your question.
