New Website

Hey All,

Well the LittleArm is being formalized a little bit. That means improvements. One of those improvements is a new website.

Here is the new LittleArm Website. On it you will find all the same resources as on this blog, but they will be better organized. Check out the new site and let us now what you think.

Design: New Wrist

We have designed a new wrist for the LittleArm. This can only be used in place of the actuated gripper. Therefore the end effectors that can be used are currently the hook and clamp for markers.

This wrist does allow for better implementation of drawing programs since it is now possible to keep the pen vertical.

STL files for the wrist can be downloaded here.

Design: Gripper Attachment Dimensions

For all of those out there that are making their own LittleArm and want to create a custom gripper, here are the dimensions of the adapter slot and gripper fitting.

Tutorial: Build the LittleArm

Here is a tutorial outlining the different steps taken to assembly the LittleArm robot kit.

Testing Teaching Pendant - Dancing Robot

We are working to create a teaching pendant for the LittleArm 3D printed robot. While we were doing some tests music was playing so we rolled with it. Enjoy

We Just Launched on Kickstarter

We have been working to turn the 3D printed robot into a kit. We are almost there.

We have launched a Kickstarter to get the funds needed to start producing the LittleArm in greater quantity. Please check out the LittleArm Campaign and be one of the first to get the kit.

But of course always feel free to download the parts and code to make your own.
