This Arduino based delta robot cost about $70, and took approximately 10 hours to build. Love it! Unfortunately, no code as of yet, hopefully it will be posted soon.

About two week ago i saw a video of an industrial delta robot and i was intrigued by the simplicity of the principle but the complexity of the movements it could make. So i thought, I’m gonna make one.

Update: The code has been posted. Thanks ‘mjcbruin’, and thanks ‘waruta’ for letting us know in the comments!

    Waruta – I had to remove the code you pasted here, it was not displaying properly (certain tags just don’t show up, so the code had a few errors)

    Thank for the update!!!

    So simple yet so effective. This design could be used for great robotic movements.
