New joint assembled

A project log for Custom Articulated Joint

I'm building a robot which requires small, articulated joints. Unfortunately I couldn't buy any, so I made my own.

Printed out a new instance of the joint and added the electronics. Here's it running.

The five sensors allows five positions of the actuator (the original electronics just allowed two). Because they're much closer together, I will probably see if I can support some sort of "micro step" to position the actuator between sensors. But that's for later - for now I'm very happy it all works.
