the prototype of a 6 degree of freedom robotic arm. The prototype is made out of 6mm MDF and hot glue. The base joint is 3D printed PLA with two 608ZZ bearings, the servo couldn't handle the weight of the arm by itself.

The final version will be fully printable and i will upload those when they are done.

This project (this video, others to come and the full instructable) will be entered in the hurricane lasers contest. If you like this project I would greatly appreciate if you would vote.

More movies, pictures and an instructable will follow soon.
