Thread: 3D Printed Robotic Arm with 6 DOF Plus a Gripper

    That is too cool. What software are you using to control the arm ?

    I used the Dynamixel SDK from Robotis to create a C# WPF application that communicates over a USB2Dynamixel connector. My app constantly monitors and displays all the servo's temperature, torque and position. I can move the arm and "remember" the positions of all the joints, then save and playback lists of positions. It is a work in progress :-)

    I added interactive Kinect control and some gesture recognition for the Seattle Mini Maker Faire.

    Audio in this one is quite low, but audible if you crank it up.

    Well done! I'm working on gesture based control for my hex. Which is rather comical since when I motion for him to turn he looses sight and stops moving. :P Are you using OpenNI and their middleware as well?

    I'm using the Kinect for Windows SDK.

    When I have used Kinect with mobile robots I usually make the Kinect fixed and remote the commands to the robot.

    Well the primesense sensor is its vision for object collision and object recognition. I'm just adding a bit of flair to it by adding gestures. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9iE3Yv2s6n4

    Very well done! I like how the design encapsulates the servos. Looks great.

    Cool. If it will be possible to improve this robotic arm with help of new more powerfull dynamixel actuators, to increase it's strength, it may serve for example for remote-presence applications. Like telemedcine remote surgery operations, only for some mechanical/electronics stuff for people who will ask for help or for some service. They will need just to share via internet control over couple of these arms and webcam. Like it can be made now for desktop and mouse. I think control with kinect will be enougth for this task (it will be need just to think out how to change "mouse speed" of kinect no the fly, to perform different types of operations: quick+wide and slow+small, may be leap motion controller will be better suitable for this task, it tracks hand/thingers)
