Hexapod Robot CNC Router

at 6:02 am. Filed under Complex Hacks, Cool Gadgets, Electronic Hacks, Insane Equipment

 

We have seen this robot grow over the months, the first feature was face tracking, then it was drawing, now the Hexapod Robot will do CNC Routing! Using the router head shown above this Hexapod robot by Matt Denton is even more flexible. Still not perfect but how many CNC machines can walk over to their work and get started?

"The collet I have made currently takes 1/8" bits, but I need to finish the 3mm version as most of my small router bits are 3mm shank. The motor is a 14 turn 380 brush-less motor, which gives about 3600 rpm/volt, so plenty fast enough! It will run from 6 to 10 cells, I think I will add a heat sink, as it tends to get a little warm even under no load. The MUX servo moves the spindle 40/50mm up and down the guide rails to the work surface. DXF files are loaded in to artcam where G-code tool paths are created."

    Wow. I must say, that is strange and intriguing. For some really strange reason, this thing reminds me of that dog from Alice in wonderland who’s head is a broom. You know, the one who sweeps away Alice’s path, causing her to get lost in the forest?

    Better be sure to add a kill switch incase it decides it doesn’t want to take orders and CNC cut you.

    Wow, this is absolutely brilliant. Why are you not patenting and selling these? I’d love to just lay out an 8×10 sheet and tell that robot to go cut out what i need. don’t need a whole room to store it in or set it up like a shopbot, and you can just put it back in the closet when you’re done with it. I’ll take 2 please
