WE MADE A DEMO: MODIFYING uArm INTO A MINI REMOVABLE TANK


Benefiting from the extendility of uArm’s base structure, we designed roller wheels which looks like tank tracks, and made it attached to the bottom of uArm. Equipped with these, uArm can move not only on the smooth floor but also on rough surface. With this equipment, uArm can be used in many dangerous conditions in place of human, or evan…

这个夹笔治具,你喜欢吗?


对于uArm这款开源机械臂来说,有很多可以应用的场景,比如最近公司的小伙伴就有了这样的想法,用uArm 来写字或者画图。这样不仅丰富了这款机械臂的应用场景,也使我们的机械臂更加的有趣味性和实用性。 其实最原始的想法萌生在tony的大脑里,于是我们就在第一时间用自家的3D打印机设计了一个简易款的夹笔治具: 这个模型是将笔放入圆筒状的半开结构中,然后通过锁紧侧面的螺丝使半开圆环收紧来固定铅笔。原理很简单,做出来以后我们将它的放在了我们的论坛上,没想到的是,在很短的时间里我们收到了众多uArm爱好者的留言和来信。这就使我们进一步了看到了这款夹笔治具的需求性。于是我们就有了将它做的更加完美的想法。 经过一系列的调整,最终我们做成了以下方案: 外观上巧妙的隐藏在了uArm的机械臂下方,使之与机械臂有种天然结合之感,浑然一体。这款夹笔治具可以夹持直径在7~15mm的笔,几乎涵盖了大部分日常用笔。 操作上又非常简单,只要按压红色的滑动按钮,就可以放入各式各样的笔,松手后就可以很轻松的夹紧笔。实际效果呢也是完全达到了我们的设计要求,外观上我们采用了铝合金“喷砂+氧化+钻切”的效果,使其外观看起来低调,但是细节上却又展现出稳重大气的感觉。 总体效果还不错吧!后续夹笔的装置上还会丝印上logo 更会显得低调、大气!
