Makerarm based in Austin Texas has created a new robotic arm that is capable of helping make almost anything and uses custom heads to provide a huge variety of manufacturing processes.
Makerarm has been designed to provide users with a complete digital fabrication system that is capable of 3D printing, laser engraving, carving, plotting , assembling using pick/place and more.
Watch the video below to learn more about the features and functionality of the robotic arm that is taken to Kickstarter to raise just under $350,000 to make the jump into production. Makerarm’s creators and developers explain a little more about their robotic arm :
As makers, we have ideas all the time––to improve things, to make our lives better. But to make our ideas happen, we need access to tons of machines, materials, and tools that are too expensive.
That’s why we created Makerarm: a complete digital fabrication system packed into an affordable robotic arm––starting at $999!––that makes just about anything, anywhere. Makerarm includes high-speed desktop milling (light duty) and carving. You can mill on a variety of materials including plastics, wood, and soft metals right on your desktop. You can even hook up heavy duty flex shaft tools such as the Dremel Fortiflex to Makerarm for power-carving, grinding, or shaping applications (with speeds up to 23,000 RPM!).
