We are making a robotic arm that can help you make just about anything, from prototype to production. We intend to democratize manufacturing, allowing anyone to make and bring their product to market.
This open source platform has unparalleled hackability. Our fertile tool post allows for almost unlimited tool head varieties. If we don’t have the tool head you need, you can make one. Do you think others will like your tool too? You can sell them also, no licenses or permission needed.
It will be a super fun project!
So far we have attached tools for:
- Pen Plotting
- Laser Engraving
- Laser Etching
- Glass Etching
- 2.5D Milling
- 3D Contour Milling
- Hot Wire Foam Cutting
- 3D Printing
- Plasma Cutting
- PCB Milling
- Pick and Place SMD components
We have also had some fun attaching a gripper and turning our arm into a Robotic Bartender
And much more!
