Student Uses 3D Printed Parts to Create Robotic Arm
We’ve all heard Go Big or Go Home, right? Tyler Gragg, an honor student, needed a project (or presentation) to fulfill an Honors Learning Experience requirement. He elected to build a robotic arm using an Arduino nano! Talk about going BIG!
“The flex sensors will measure the degree your fingers are bent at, the Arduino nano will then take that degree bend in form of a voltage and that will output a value to the servomotor to spin to a specific degree that holds the positions,” Gragg said.
Gragg said the project took about 45 hours in total with most of the time being spent 3-D printing.
