Arduino-Controlled Servo Arm by d_goodman Jan 18, 2013

Description

I wanted to create a robotic arm using servos, so I printed some linkages and did up some code in Arduino and MATLAB to run the arm using the Joystick shield for Arduino.

The design can be applied to different servo sizes by changing the CAD but this particular model was made for the above servos.

Good luck!

Instructions

Things should be self explanatory:

Base is anchored and has a servo pointing upward. The Rotating Base holds a servo perpendicular to the lower one. The Middle Link connects the second servo to the third servo and the End Link is attached to the third servo.

I would be happy to explain rigging up the servo electronics and sharing the arduino code, just send me a message.

I printed this, and everything works/fits well with the exception of the rotating platform. It doesn't seem to render correctly, even when run through netfab. Any ideas?

I just uploaded a new version of the rotating platform, I was able to put it in Makerware and slice it successfully. Let me know if this works.
