Awesome work! Discovered it via the Superhouse video. I wrote a article about it which will go live on Hackaday tommorow, which should help to get the word out a bit. https://hackaday.com/blog/

Thank you Danie for your support, I really appreciate it.
Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any kind of extra info about this and other projects of mine.

This is an amazing project, thanks! I'm part way through making it now, and one thing I don't understand is the need for the 2.5x10mm countersunk screws in the internal holes in the base element. The notes say it's for reinforcement. Is it necessary? That seems like a strong part of the design, even though it's the point of maximum strain with the arm leaning off it.

Hi jonoxer, I recommend the use of the screw in the base piece as the underlying pin may come off when the crane is removed from the base. This could happen with some 3D printers when the crane base piece remains stuck in the base hole. However, you can try this tool without using the screws and maybe mount them only if the indicated problem occurs.

Thanks Giufini, I appreciate it. I'm going to make a video about it for my YouTube channel, SuperHouseTV.

You are welcome jonoxer and thank you for your interest in my products.
I'm looking forward to seeing your video ;-)

Your contribution to the electronics community is fantastic. Octo+ is on my todo list, and this will follow if the need for it comes up. Thanks for these two amazing 3D models.

Hi Gunnarx, thank you for your feedback, I really appreciate it! ;-)

Can these work with the Octo+ PCB worksation?

Yes! The crane arms with nano-probes can be mounted on the Octo+ PCB Workstation.
