6 axis CNC / robot prototype

Testing some rc servos

Posted by | 6 axis CNC / robot prototype | 2 Comments

Just as a quick update to the last post, here are my servos for the prototype… basically dancing at the whim of my computer!

For those interested, I’m running a Mini Maestro servo controller (by Pololu), using the supplied sequencing software. This took about 5 min to program.

Enjoy!

Another project begins…

This one has been in the “still dreaming” phase for about a year, but a few parts are finally starting to arrive, so I thought I’d share a photo.
These parts are going to become a prototype of a 6 axis milling machine/general manufacturing robot which I intend to launch one day as a low cost/open source alternative to the current expensive commercial offerings.
Up next, a video of these being tested – Keep your eyes open!
