My Big Robot Claw





Introduction: My Big Robot Claw

          Here's my big robot claw hand, which I designed in CAD software then hand made out of MDF, some clear polycarbonate sheeting and various hardware.  This project was more about form than about function.  That being said, it does function perfectly and smoothly, but gear teeth cut out of MDF are just not meant for heavy duty industrial applications so the claw is mainly a novelty.

          This one is about 2 feet tall standing on my desk.  It's a good size and a neat machine and decoration but I'm definitely feeling myself compelled to make myself another claw scaled up by about a factor of 4 or 5.  I'll be sure to post photos if and when I start the enormous robot claw project.

    Ok, but no files? No instructions? What are you doing here?


    Great project. How did you get it to look so much like metal?

    Awesome project! Any chance you'd put that file up (I know it's a bit cheeky but I'm thinking of doing the same thing and I don't know how to use the program) :P

    This thing looks really cool! I really like your design!

    When I first saw this I thought it was faked. With further looking at the picture I could tell it is in fact real.

    Good job on the claw! I would love to see your next one!

    That's a nice claw design.
