Thor - Open Source, 3D printable robotic arm

Postby f3nix » Sun Jan 08, 2017 9:05 pm

Hi.
This is not my project but I think it is way cool and made using FreeCAD. So I think it deserves mentioning here.

From project summary:

--- CUT ---
Thor is an Open Source and printable robotic arm with six degrees of freedom, designed using FreeCAD.

Its configuration (yaw­-roll­-roll­-yaw­-roll­-yaw) is the same one that is used on most manipulator robots that currently exist in the market.
In its upright position, Thor is about 625mm and it can lift objects up to 750 grams.
