    There may be some delays due to school graduation and military issues!

    (Korean men must serve in the military.)

    The design of the model has been changed due to the problem of the production method. Second feedbeck in progress.

    AC servo arrived!! it's sooooooo big! almost my arm!

    let's time to test!

    Rendered into plastic by mis-selecting the material..


    it's more SEXY

  • RV-50C buying

    Why hasn't it been uploaded? I pressed the upload button..


    I bought an RV gear that would fit the bottom of the robot at a local bearing store.

    at around 890$ (50%~ off) (because i m student)

    Normaly the color of the outer case is not black, but this is. because it's not a standard product. 

    As you can see from the drawing, the shape of the Center gear is different.

    Of course, i will planning to produce and upload hardware for the basic model later.

    So.. i have to do make another center gear fitted in this gear.

    this gears reduction ratio is 1:49.82(normaly. you can manage this ratio using custom gearbox)

    Hello guys! long time no see!

    First of all, the project is going on. Don't worry.

    I've been thinking a lot about how to make robotic joints for a month.

    My conclusion is as follows.

    : a reliable structure at a moderate price.

    In fact, the robot arm has a long history of being built. You can search it as an industrial robot on YouTube, and you can see it very simply from 10 years ago.

    For example, KUKA or ABB..

    So the various parts of the robot have already been refined, and we just have to buy and use them.

    While the way to buy and assemble the product may blur the density of the effort in the project, I thought it would be more appropriate to buy the reliable parts than to make all the parts themselves (2.5-5axis CNC machining) because this project would allow many people to create their own "trustworthy" Open Source Cinema robots.

    But because we have to make a firm compromise on the important part of economics, we have decided to move towards the minimum use of these 'well-made' parts.

    Although the price of materials is going up more compared to the price of parts originally planned, I am not going to compromise with the price barrier regarding the quality of finished products.

    So I decided to use the following parts.

    The RV Series reducer.

    For Joint 1. (BASE)

    RV50C (more than 1,000$)

    Because it is a gear that penetrates the main axis of the robot, it is where all the loads are concentrated, and for the robot's smooth rotation, it is decided to use a gear with a crooked hole in the easy-to-pass front, such as a motor cable.

    RV-C Series Gearbox | Hollow Shaft Speed Reducer

    For Joint2.

    RV40E (

    For Joint3.


    The gearbox of the RV series will only be used for these three joints. Of the total six joints, the remaining three will be either purchased from other parts or manufactured directly through CNC processing.

    We have not yet secured a place to purchase parts for the BASE axis, but we will update the information before the project is finished. In my case, I will purchase through a local supplier.

    Except for the three axes above, the other three axes will adopt a power transfer method through metal wire control for lightening.(see below video)

    This is to inform you that there may be some upward revision for the model number.

    Time to go to work!

    That's right. It's been a long time since I had my last log.

    truly, i have some problem now. ( not about the entire project )

    The motor I ordered for the test was broken by my mistake.

    So far, I've talked to the manufacturer for motor A/S and will send the motor back to the manufacturer tomorrow

    The project is going on, so don't worry!

Does this help to play white screen? I want to show up it for private cinema with some specific content.

"Cinema robot" as in robot to help make films, or robot to be in films?
