Let's Make Robots!

First Working Robot Arm

Simple robot arm

Using steel strapping commonly found in the plumbing section of Home Depot, I constructed the support frame of the robot.

Everything is held together with machine screws and plastic ties.

As well I found that adding springs to the chasis helped the servos be more precise.

Nicely done! Very smooth motion, and surprising use of materials.

Thanks so much!
