Introduction: How to Use a Few Pieces of Wood to Assemble Into a Cute and Powerful Wood Robot Arm

About: LewanSoul specializes in product development and creation, especially in the field of bionic robots, we provide the majority of users with superior hardware and software products. We have manufactured robots...

  • The name of the robot arm is WoodenArm. It looks very cute!
  • If you want more detail about WoodenArm,please refer to www.lewansoul.com
  • Now we can make an introduction about the WoodenArm, let's move on it!

Step 1: Description

LewanSoul-WoodenArm is a wooden robotic arm with powerful performance based on Arduino Nano board. The mechanical structure of the entire robotic arm is made of pure wood. Its appearance is exquisite and compact, and its structural stability is strong. The main control chip it used is the Arduino Nano board. The output is the LFD-01 servo, which can connect multiple modules at the same time. A variety of interesting games can be created based on different sensor modules.

Step 2: Getting to Know the Parts

This cute WoodenArm has various electronic modules: Acceleration module ADXL-345, Color module APDS-9960, Rotary knob module, LED Display screen, LDF-01 servo.

Besides, based on the Arduino Nano control board, we have developed our own Arduino expansion board in order to have more functional modules, and then using WoodenArm to realize more creativity, better learning programming and experience in the process, bring us happiness. So intelligent WoodenArm has the ability to achieve different gameplay.

Step 3: Body Assembly_1

Required materials:

  • Robotic arm body bracket*1
  • LDF-01 servo*1
  • Screwdriver*1
  • Screws* several

You need to install a part of the body as shown in the picture. It is only necessary to fix the small blocks with screws, and then use screws and servos to fix them together. During this process, pay attention to adjusting the tightness of the screws. Pay attention to adjust the tightness. This process tests the hands' ability of 3 stars.

Step 4: Body Assembly_2

Required materials:

  • Robotic arm body bracket*1

  • LDF-01 servo*1

  • Screwdriver*1

  • Screws* several

You need to install a part of the body as shown in the picture.
Only need to fix the small block with the corresponding screw, and then Use a screw to connect the servo and the block and fix it, and then fix the servo and the block together. Pay attention to adjust the tightness. This process tests the hands' ability of 2 stars.

Step 5: Body Assembly_3

Required materials:

  • Robotic arm body bracket*1
  • LDF-01 servo*1
  • Screwdriver*1
  • Screws* several

You need to install a part of the body as shown in the picture. This part is a bit simpler than the previous part. It is only necessary to fix the small blocks with the corresponding screws, and then install them together with the servos assembled in the previous step. Pay attention to adjust the tightness. This process tests the hands ability of 3 stars.

Step 6: Claw Assembly

Required materials:

  • Robotic arm body bracket*1
  • LDF-01 servo*1
  • Screwdriver*1
  • Screws* several

You need to install the claws as shown in the picture. Only need to fix the small wooden block with the corresponding screw, and then use the screw to connect the servo and the wooden block and fix it, and then fix the servo and the small block together.

Pay attention to adjust the tightness. This process tests the hands' ability of 4 stars.

Step 7: Chassis Assembly

Required materials:

  • Robotic arm body bracket*1
  • Dupont line*4
  • Screws* several
  • Nylon*4
  • Rotary knob module*4
  • Arduino Nano control board*1
  • Expansion board*1

You need to install the chassis as shown in the picture. This part is to fix the rotary knob module to the base with screws. At the same time, it needs to insert the Dupont line on the rotary knob module. Finally, the Arduino Nano control board and Arduino expansion board are screwed in the middle of the four rotary knob modules. This process tests the hands' ability of 4 stars.

Step 8: Integral Assembly

Required materials:

  • 30cm Winding pipe*1
  • Screws* several
  • Sucker, washers, gaskets, nuts*1
  • Rolling belt*4

Congratulations, you finally arrived at the final step of the installation. You need to install the rest as shown in the picture. In this step, you need to fix the previously installed base and arm sections together so that you can become a complete WoodeArm. This process tests the hands' ability of 3 stars.

Step 9: Design Considerations

There are many metal cars on the market, including our own products. However, with the changes of the times, we have been thinking about how to integrate with the times and echo the themes advocated by the contemporary era. Driven by this idea, we designed the WoodenArm, a wooden car. The car's shell is made of wood, so this shows the theme of environmental protection. In our installation package, the wood used on the base and arm of the trolley is a set, and after perfect cutting, all the components can come in handy thanks to the zero waste after installation. The Arduino Nano control board on the car and our own Arduino expansion board have also made the car more powerful in terms of functionality and more inspiring user creativity. We support all creative ideas. In addition, the appearance of the retro, lightweight, the material does not hurt the hand, easy installation, powerful features make this product unique.

Step 10: Gameplay & Final Remarks

You can use the computer or infrared remote controller to control the Wooden Arm.

You can insert the program into the Arduino Nano control board to control the WoodenArm. You can also modify the program or even create a new one by yourself. In fact, in order to help users better learn about WoodenArm development kit, we have prepared several interesting gameplay for users, helping them to quickly get started with WoodenArm learning(You can refer to our LewanSoul website ).

The next game is waiting for you to create~

    Very nice, I love that it's made out of wood (I'm not a big plastic fan... Lol now I have the image of myself as a big plastic rotating air blowing device... Sorry I'm weird lol)

    Very cool!

    If you have files or printable templates for the wooden pieces, that would be excellent to include in one of the steps.
