Playing with 7bot robot arm

The 7bot is a recent kickstarter project https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1128055363/7bot-a-powerful-desktop-robot-arm-for-future-inven from 7bot. A metal robot arm based around Arduino Due (https://www.arduino.cc/en/Guide/ArduinoDue ). Development of the software, at the time of writing, is still ongoing but looks interesting and already on the comments page of the site, user's have started posted their code. 




Had to install the following software and put the un-zipped files in the library folder of the Arduino folder.

Some useful information of setting up using the Arduino Due is available at https://www.arduino.cc/en/Guide/ArduinoDue and is definitely worth a read - it helped me setting it up.


At the moment I have just used the examples from the GitHub site and example is shown in the video below. This looks like an exciting little arm and hopefully there will be more on this blog about it.




I would be interested in hearing from others who have been playing with this arm.
