View Full Version : [Project] The TROBOT

Hi all, I’m new here and wanted to share a robot project I’ve been working on for a while. It’s called the TROBOT.
It’s a miniature six-axis articulated robot, modeled after large industrial & assembly line robots.


These versions (2.0 & 3.0) of the TROBOT were built on a very tight budget -- the entire project material costs were under $100. I’m currently raising funds to build a new more robust, more precise version (KickStarter Project: The TROBOT 4.0) (http://kck.st/mwxqyE), and plan to release them as robot kits. I just ordered some Dynamixel servos to start work on version 4.0. I also hope Trossen will be interested in reselling them here too.
