Introduction: How to Make a Robot Gripper!

About: I'm a student of mechanical engineering at Aalborg university in Denmark. I absolutely love to tinker with electronics and mechanics, and thus much of my spare time is spent on hobby robotics and 3D printers...

To make this project you will need:

* A small blow torch or lighter
* A glue gun
* A Dremel or rotary tool
* A few rotary tool bits(drill, sanding wheels and a cutting wheel)
* A permanent marker
* The Cutting pattern(can be found here http://kattejuice.deviantart.com/gall... )

* A micro servo
* 4 small nails or pins
* A piece of Plexiglas (acrylic, 2x2 inches or 10x10cm)
* A large paperclip
* And some sealing tape

If you don't have a rotary tool use a drill, some sanding paper and a fine saw.



This project is very cheap too! it only costs about $10!! :D

Heres the prize list:

A micro servo                   -$5 to $10 (mine was $6!)
4 small nails or pins      -FREE
A piece of Plexiglas        -$1
A large paper clip           -FREE
Some sealing tape        -$1




If you are new to robotics the you might wanna start with something simple and fun!

    Where did you get the servos from? Just wondering.

    what is this like for picking up ball's eg. ping pong ball

    The protective layer should be peeled off after you cut your pieces. It's there to protect the surface from scratches when you work on your piece.

    its great

    this would work perfect for the delta robot im making for a final project at school.
