    Re: Robotic Marionette

    Thanks for the comments, and I am glad you are enjoying my streams of thought!

    I consider documentation as important as the project itself. Among other things, sometimes the documentation is the only thing that survives at the end of the day! No to mention the fact that you can go back and see what have you learned,( if you learned), from your mistakes and it helps others avoid obvious pitfalls...although it is fun (sometimes) to see what is at the bottom of the pit, heheh.

    Happy Holidays to all

    something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.

    Red face Re: Robotic Marionette

    I was reviewing this post and realized I had missed posting a picture of the "elevator" that takes the place of the puppeteer's arm going up and down. I probably blocked it out of my head because in fact it was the hardest problem to solve and I am still not happy with it by any means. The funny thing is that it was the hardest problem because it was so obvious that you take it for granted, since it is so natural for a human to do such movement without thinking.

    I explained all that in post#16 but forgot to upload the pictures, so I just did. Did not want to repeat them here.

    If a robot has a screw it must be removed and then mods must be made to it.
