FEZ Robot Arm


#1

A few weeks back i ordered all the parts for a robot arm. I had the arm cut at http://www.ponoko.com. I ordered the nuts and bolts from http://www.mcmaster.com. I ordered the servos from hobby king. Today Finally every thing arrived. So I thought i would share some pictures of what came in. Nothing is put together yet. So first off the laser cut acrylic. the picture is dark because the flash was adding to much reflection and i did not feel like setting up my deffused light setup for one picture.

Now a picture of the cheap high torque servos from hobbyking.

So far so good ;D
I love the plexi. It is very well cut. 8)

I have found similar servos in the euro warehouse:
http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbycity/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=10748
Which have a power of 17.0kg/cm at 6V.

Please please please keep us posted, if you need help, ask ;D

Great, just what we need - invisible robots. :think:

Must - stop - reading - robotics - posts: the temptation to invest time and money into another black hole is strong!

That they have used clear plexi does not mean he will leave it that way?
Plexi can be easily painted by using regular paint spray cans like you can get at almost every car shop.

I have done it several times and the paint does not get ripped of. :slight_smile:

I am interesting in doing some casing with my other project,
(Robot is still not in my consideration yet!)

But I have a few questions for you…

Are you happy with the result from ponoko.com?
What is the size of plexi shown in the picture?
And can you tell how much you pay for it?
Last Q, How long does it take from submit the design until you receive your final product?

I am wondering… on the hobbyking website the servos are declared as “digital”. Is this true?
By the way, for 6 dollars more, you can get a 17kg one ;D
