Not So Droopy SCARA (Robot Arm)

Prompted by an email from JJRobots, here’s a single-arm SCARA design that I’ve been working on that could be suitable for drilling, 3D printing, etc.

A Bigger Delta

Learning a little about Delta 3D printers gave me enough confidence to design my own and I’m very happy to say that the genesis has been a lot of fun.
