Anyways, I was having some trouble determing what size actuator I should use for the shoulder pivot and rotate so I will start from the fingers and work backwards towards the shoulder. I'm also contemplating whether or not to include the arm extend and retract motion. It'll look nice but I'm not sure if it's worth the extra weight.
At the moment, I am planning on the following movements for the arms:
1. Upper finger open and close
2. Lower finger open and close
3. Wrist rotate
4. Arm extend and retract (Maybe)
5. Arm swing in and out
6. Shoulder rotate
Here's the Rev. 0 version of the arm...
... and here's what I have so far for the final revision
There will likely be major changes to what I currently have depending on how the fingers and the wrist turns out.
Alright, time for some breakfast and then I'll be back to do some work.
I had a pretty bad headache today so I didn't get a chance to work on WALL-E today.
