As far as I know this is the only ready-to-go Stewart Platform on the internet. It receives Gcode commands through a USB serial connection at 57600 baud to translate and/or rotate with 6 degrees of freedom.
RSP2 has six motors working together. That means any error is averaged between them. Compare that to a robot arm where the error of each motor is multiplied! This averaging can make them incredibly accurate.
Stewart Platforms are most commonly known for flight simulators. They’re also used to test car shock absorbers, simulate waves at sea, and in high-precision surgical robots.
The photos show wooden parts that, in some cases, are now 3D printed for greater accuracy and ease of assembly.
RSP2 uses Makelangelo Firmware to in the brain of the robot. It’s our Swiss Army Knife.
The metal arms are removed for shipping.
Because we ship internationally we do NOT include the 12v3a power supply.
