Why print and post robot arm
but unable to operate it
Also , someone else has printed the arm
But they to are un able to produce a sketch
sketchy to say the least.

All files are free of use, you don't have to use if you don't want to. Be nice to people who openly share their work with other people. If you don't like it why don't you make one yourself, and share it. Even better, why don't you change the files I've made available to the rest and improve the design and give back the improvements for others to use?

Also, please go and see the following video. It is awesome to see that someone (and there are more) took my files, changed & improved them, made it available to the rest of us and ended up with a working robotic arm. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QOcm2gTX_8U

It becomes much more challenging if all you do is complain, so please go ahead, improve and contribute.

Hey, nice gripper!. Can i find the CAD Data anywhere??? Thx

Nice robotic arm. I am trying to build similar one. do you have wiring diagram used for arduino and servo/stepper motor, LCD connections?

I can't find M3 x 63mm screws anywhere, is there a good substitute?

Comments deleted.

Very nice design , unfortunately some parts do not fit in my printer 200mm x 200mm x 180mm

Make sure you select "none" for platform adhesion (not even the single brim). That made the large arm to fit in my 20x20.

Thanks! It should work for your printer, because my printer has the same footprint dimensions. I had to place some parts in a diagonal direction though.

I have tried all possibilities but cannot fit in diagonal direction

BTW what you plan for servo drive you will use arduino ?

Okay... Well, I'm afraid I can't help you out then. To control the servos I plan using my custom smart servo PCB boards with a custom processor board. I will probably not use an arduino, as it might be a little bit underpowered.
