Hanging Liminality - Final Prototype

The final prototype titled Hanging Liminality by James Ye-Won Lee and Jonathan Fernandes, two masters students at the University of Sydney.  The installation uses 28 servo motors and an Arduino Mega.  In addition, they used a PS Eye webcam to control the servos so they react in response to video movement.  Nice job guys!

Delta Bot Print Head Test



The Delta Bot Print Head Test by Brian Harms

A quick glimpse of the definition behind the mechanics, a preview of the digital delta bot, and finally the physical delta bot working in unison with it's digital counterpart.

First Delta Bot Test

The First Delta Bot Test by Brian Harms

Fairly successful first Delta Bot run. No smoothing yet, and the servo mounts are all but stable, so I have high hopes for the robot-mounted version.

A_FAB Robot in Action

The A_FAB Robot in Action by Brian Harms

First documented operation of the A_FAB robot. It sits idle, stands, walks, changes the position of its end effector, and extrudes a material in specific patterns.  A prototype for a robot capable of creating brand new built environments for itself on a print bed potentially unlimited in size.
