Don't bother printing this, it wobbles too much! Print Lite Arm i2 instead it is more stable and requires less specialized components:
I will be uploading all add-on parts here:
If you want to make and sell these please send me a link to your ebay listing (or whatever) so I can point people in that direction I am not sure I can keep up with demand with only one printer, and I want people to have access to parts when they need them.

This is a fully 3D printable robotic arm modeled after the U Factory uArm,
which is modeled after the ABB Robotics IRB-660
and the Aliexpress MG995 Hobby Robot Kit.
This arm is fully compatible with the uArm software as long as you use their Arduino Shield. All of these parts were designed by me in Google Sketchup, which I have included both a copy of the software for Google Sketchup 8, along with the STL exporting plugin and the files that were used to produce the CAD images and parts list. You can use sketchup and modify any of the parts as you see fit, this Is my gift to the community, enjoy!
The goal is to make the "Lite Arm" a common open source robotic arm, and to proliferate it as widely as possible.
There are a lot of people working with robotic arms, and doing many interesting things. I think it would be great if we were able to directly benefit from the work others are doing, and share the software that enables a variety of tasks, first we need a common format for that sort of thing to work well.
I would love to see this hardware capable of self replication. Perhaps we can attach an extruder and have it 3D print it’s own parts and upgrades, as well as retaining the capacity to assemble itself at some point with future iterations.
This will require some hard work in developing the software.
Many hands make "Lite" work.
This project is carried over from:
My last project
Take a look at the uarm instructions, they are very similar, I will add a more detailed instruction later. for a parts list also look at the uarm instructions, I have provided an additional pdf from my ebay shopping cart.
