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.

Acquire a small breadboard.
print one end effector, four bicep, and four mounting brackets.
CAUTION! Mounting brackets in the pictures are flipped on the X axis. The uploaded model has been corrected. Your robot should look like a mirror image of this one.
Assemble as in the photographs. Hot glue the servo horns onto the biceps.
Upload the code from the github project @ https://github.com/i-make-robots/Delta-Robot
after you change NUM_ARMS to 4.
