    Hello everyone,

    I’m an mechanical engineer from the Leibniz University Hannover in Germany. We
    are building the modified Thor robot from here:
    https://hackaday.io/project/16665-thor-robot-with-addons-and-gui to use it as
    in class demonstrator. This hands-on robot vastly helps us teaching our master
    students about kinematics, dynamics and control of robots. We appreciate this very

    So far, we printed all parts using an ultimaker 3 and ordered the electronics. We’re still waiting for a view
    parts to arrive, before we can start assembling the robot. Furthermore,
    we started simulating Thor in Matlab to give students the opportunity to get an
    better understandings about robotic basics in hands-on exercises. On tasks will
    be to determine the Denavite Hartenberg parameters for Thor. If the parameters
    are correct, the robot is displayed in green, otherwise all incorrect parts lay
    upon the ground and are displayed in red (see Image). Further tasks will be
    prepared. The final task probably will be to move an object with the robot.

      Hi Kathrin,

      First of all, welcome to the family! I added you to the List of Thor Builders

      As I said on previous occasions, I can’t be happier seeing that Thor is being used in schools and universities 🙂
      I hope that you and your students like the project as much as I like it!

      Do not hesitate on asking if you need some help!

      I’ll be looking forward to see updates of your project soon 😉

      Here is an update from our project. We just finished assembling the
      robot and need to work on the software next. We are looking forward to
      see it moving.

        It looks gorgeous! Congratulations 🙂
