Delta Robot v1 with four arms by i-make-robots Feb 4, 2013


All my designs & progress available @ Marginally Clever
Scale model of a 4 armed delta robot used in automated manufacturing. I'm looking for better ball joints. A universal joint that mates to M3 would be fantastic.
If you use one of my designs, please let me know! I'd love to see what you make with it and share with others who are interested.

Hi, this delta robots looks great! Do you plan to release all the stl files?

This kit has had a major overhaul. The next edition is available through my website right now and will be released on thingiverse on or about october 18.

This is cool.

Why not flip the brackets and re-upload them?

it was very late and night and i was already in bed. I didn't think to use meshlab to flip it.
