3D-printed delta bot

3D Printing & Imaging Robotics

So sweet. I’d love to see a video of it in action.

After many little pieces, I am finally able to construct a delta robot that is mostly made of printed parts.

This thing is a delta robot frame. There is the basic frame, mounted motors, arms, tool holder, and the like. The arms closest to the motors are printed plastic notched spans. The longer arms are wood dowels, with tape on their ends to enhance the friction fit into their fittings.

    Hey! Whoa. Those connectors are cool. It would be great if someone sold those by the pound or something. Just have boxes and boxes of various ones lying around the shop to build whatever I want with cheaply purchased threaded rods. Like, an erector set on steroids.

      They do have that. It’s called Lego ;)

        These connectors look more professional than Legos.

    Next step is a delta-robot 3d printer. Has anyone seen this?
