#3DxMechanicals – Tri_Max_Gripper (Conforming Robotic gripper) by Chiprobot #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Guest Curator Emmett Lalish has this to say about this 3DxMechanicals project: “I love this because it’s so simple, yet so effective and shows off how to design with flexibility in mind. This is such a perfect application of 3D printing. And don’t be afraid to use non-printed parts; this uses printing only where it actually helps the design.”

Tri_Max_Gripper ( Conforming Robotic gripper ) by Chiprobot:

This is a Robotic gripper that adjusts its grip to conform to the shape and form of the object picked up.

Its printed with normal PLA (ie does not have to be flexi pla). More details of build can be found on my robot page here.

The drive mechanism is a simple standard servo modified with a linear actuator made from a “Glue stick” and linear feedback potentiometer. Details on servo conversion can be found here.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
