This is a robotic arm with 6 axis build up with smart serial servo motors. It also has a neopixel head and there is a simple mechanism to exchange different toolheads on it.
Mostly small printed 3D parts and allmost without support material so they can be printed with alot of 3D printers.
The movements will be done with serial instructions from the hardware controller (arduino due) and pc to exchange data with the pc graphical robo GUI software controler. It runs on PC,MAC and Linux machines, for any progress look at project logs to see the Graphical GUI controler in progress. It will run inverse kinematic at full speed! There will be a editor to record / play senarios. There will be a new pendant controller to work without a pc in development.
Started my 6DOF smartrobot project! beginning with the 'base unit'
As you already know or for the one they didn't know I started from scratch with this project.
I redrawed everything because I wasn't happy with the result of controlling and moving parts. This robot will consist of 9 smart serial servo motors with feedback. You even can put the torck as low to move the robot by hand and record the movements. All feedback parameters as positioning,temperature,torck,load are available. Every motor will be commanded by serial communication, You can add up to 253 servos in one communication line.
I printed all base (axis 1) parts with my brand new leapfrog Bolt pro 3D printer and assembled it.
This is the first part and will be part of my graphical GUI controller software.
Another leap forward in designing the GUI controller, this time with sychronized servos! All is working with ethernet UDP communication to become the fastest communication. Next part will be moving automatically with the robot, swinging servos...
