Marginally Clever has made a lot of different robots, including the Arm3 palletizing robot. Robot arms hold great fascination here. We’d love to build a really great low cost robot arm. One of our early prototypes was even available online for sale, and as an open source model. Here now are the assembly instructions for that arm prototype. You can still get all the Arm3 parts on Thingiverse. Please give back by sharing your creation, mods, etc in the forums. Continue reading Assembling the Arm3 palletizing robot
The ROBO-0031 Makelangelo Five begins shipping November 16, 2016.
In this demo video from Energid, their Actin software is dynamically controlling two robot arms to actively avoiding a human operator interfering with their personal space.
From the Reddit post, “The reflective target is not needed, but it’s a good way to introduce random motion and prove that collision avoidance is working in real-time. The software takes care of motion planning and dynamic collision avoidance.”
I would love to have this in Robot Overlord. The robot on the right is a UR10. Does anyone know the model o the robot on the left?
For your convenience, you can get all Marginally Clever Instructables in one link.
Please favorite and comment on them so that we can make them super awesome!
Kelly Key sent in this gorgeous 18″x18″ Makelangelo drawing done with inverted color – a silver Sharpie on black artist paper.
Kelly says, “I have sent these around the world to friends. One is in Japan….This particular print I sent to the Church of Satan….I haven’t heard back…but I am sure it is hanging in somewhere.”
Thank you, Kelly! Everyone else, please keep for posting in the forums and sending in your awesome pictures. We love to share what you do!
Edit: The next version of Makelangelo software (v7.8.2) now has an option to set the paper and pen color. Preview your drawing as it is meant to be seen!
