Title: Robotic Arm Base(ics)
Post by: iamsore on April 11, 2011, 07:44:49 PM
I'm (noob) in the process of building a robotic arm.  Something like this 7 servo arm on thingverse would be great. (

I'm hoping to beef up the thingverse design of this arm a little bit - starting with the base.  Here is what I have so far:

1.  Access to heavy duty RC servos - 360 degree rotation - metal gears
2.  I have a cnc mill - so making as many parts as possible would be great.  ( (
3.  I have easy access to aluminum (arm frame will be constructed from aluminum)

If anybody has links or helpful comments - please reply - I'm just getting started - except for the super armitron I had as a kid.
