Robot Arm Adapter Dimension Diagram
We’re using a normal camera quick release for this robot arm because we want to follow the KISS principle. With these diagrams in millimeters [and inches] you should be able to model the adapter and then 3D print it, mill it, add it to a tool design, or more. The only rule to remember with the adapter is this: your tool should never go “below” the top edge of the adapter, or the arm might not be able to grab the adapter.
So what kind of tools could you make for your robot arm? Here are a few suggestions:
A Dremel mount:
A 3D printer nozzle:
A vacuum nozzle with a suction cup:
A vacuum nozzle with a balloon full of coffee grouns:
I’ve already made a bottle opener.
If you can make a tool, share it in our Evil Minion forum or bring it to the World Maker Fair 2015. I’d love to see what you can do.
