Build your own Arduino-based delta robot with Delta X
If you’ve ever seen a delta 3D printer work, you’ve certainly been amazed at the careful coordination of three motors to accurate position a carriage. While impressive in this role, delta robots can be used for much more, from laser engraving, to pick-and-place operations, to automated phone testing, or even playing the piano.
To make these systems a bit more accessible, Vietnamese startup IMWI has developed an open source delta robot — dubbed Delta X — based on an Arduino Mega and a RAMPS 1.4 board that can do all of these jobs and then some.
The Delta X has launched on Kickstarter, where you will also find additional information on the modular kit along with many more clips of it in action. Design files for the build will be released when successfully funded.
