Jeremy Fielding Builds a 7-Axis Industrial Robotic Arm @roboweek #NationalRoboticsWeek
Jeremy Fielding is not only a talented engineer, he’s also a talented educator. In this video, he introduces the 7-axis robot arm that he’s been building from scratch in his home shop.
Jeremy breaks down what an axial-arm industrial robot is, how he went about building his own, what some of the design challenges were, and what he plans to do to bring the project to completion.
You don’t see too many people building industrial robots in their home shops.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
