Linear Stewart Platform
All my projects & progress are available at marginallyclever.com.
I wrote the software first for a rotary hexapod that used hobby servos. I then rewrote the relevant sections for simpler linear action.
The u-joints are TRAXXAS half-shafts cut down with a Dremel. There are 12 flanged bearings that allow the actuators to turn smoothly for yaw.
- pitch/roll: 50 degrees (could go higher but u-joints won't allow)
- yaw: 45 degrees
- heave: 100mm
- Weight does not include PCBs.
This is part of a larger robot I am building. I challenge any of you to build an automatic tool changer for this machine.
