Let's Make Robots!

My first Delta Robot with hobby servos


I have just finished my first delta robot, and at the moment I'm trying to program it somehow. It is not easy, but fortunatelly I have found enough inspiring code and howtos on the net. The robot is made out of three standard cheap Hitach servos, alu bars, ordinary ball joints and cnc-cutted  laminated plastic pieces. The design of the milled parts is made in Rhinoceros (it is not a big deal).

As driver I'm trying to use an Arduino Leonardo board (I really hope, that I will be capable someday to implement proper G-code programming on it), or a Pololu Mini Maestro 12 for pick and place tasks.

That's all for now, I will return later with more details and video. Sorry for my poor english.

Looks promising.

If you need inspiration for the code part perhaps you can use some om my DeltaRobot library code over here:http://letsmakerobots.com/node/27921

Thank you, Morten!

Your machines are amazing.
