Hi All Thor Robot Builders,
My name is Martin Barr I am from the UK and saw Angel’s thor robot while looking for something to 3D print an make.
I have now done this an managed to get my ARM working.
I bought the Electronic board from Angel and assembled it myself, that was fun and a good way to learn. Would recommend it to anyone interested. SMD’s are cool.
I was in Engineering for 14 years, have an HND in Production Engineering. Decided IT was the way to go after that so got a Post Grad diploma in Computer Science.
I went into IT “UNIX” Linux when Slackware was around. 🙂 showing my age with all this 🙂
I am just a very keen hobbist that likes to know about everything. Build this robot arm is a great way to learn.
@Angel, thank you for all you patience with me and my emails with issues.
I attach my Thor. Still working on the control box. Also working out or trying why the sensors are not working. I cannot home Thor. I just zero it with power off and power on. Then move it okay. Just watching limits.
Made it pick up the tube and move it so well happy 🙂
Will post more when I get time.
Hi Angel, I sent you an email about the sensors.
Did you have time to look at them?
Homing is still not working although I can move the robot arm without that by just setting it in the home position manually and running some gcode to the grbl interface on the Arduino board.
I have a video but it seems too big to send via email I tried also on here but it’s too big (190MB MP4)
