But... the next few weeks around here are going to be nuts and we still have some holiday related hacking to accomplish. This project is going to have to wait.
Alexander and I did have some interesting conversations about how the C1 might perform as a Pick and Place machine though..
- The entire assembled end effector, minus the 3D printing related cruft, weighs in at just 28 grams
- XY resolution is 0.02 to 0.07mm for the build plate area
- >3000mm/sec2 acceleration
- >300mm/sec top speed
That would be a pretty kick butt PNP machine.
We still have yet to see how some of that plays out in the real world of course, but plans for automatic luer lock tip changers and lightweight 9g hobby servo part rotators are already dancing in my head.
