Arms & End Effectors

3D Printed Star Wars R2-D2 R6 Droid

This page is about the 3D Arms, check out the main project index for the rest.

There is a YouTube video about this section

I decided that I should add some more useful arms with end effectors to the droid. These are a circular saw and a computer interface arm. There’s not too much space in the body due to the centre foot retraction mechanism, so they have to fold up into a smaller space:

Each arm is 3D printed – they are similar apart from the front section. Each has two servos controlled by my existing Arduino based multi-tasking framework:

A few pictures of the arms mounted – check out the video above for the action:
