We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
Firstly, thanks to Gyrobot for designing and printing these out.
Heath Company began the HERO 1 project in October 1979. The first units were available in 1982. This is a real blast from the past and a credit to the technology available at the time. The R2D2 of its day.
This is an stl for a replacement gripper jaw on the end of the robotic arm. This gripper was printed off for the Heathkit at the Museum of Computing in Swindon.

So what's this mean?
We're sure Swindon-Makerspace would love to see what you've printed - take a photo and share it on Thingiverse as a Make.
