I have wanted to build a small robotic arm for a little while and so I decided to get it started. I have pretty good progress on the gripper and expect I should have it in the rest of the arm fabricated by the end of this month. I will likely have to send out to some firm to have a rapid prototype in order to save me some time.

The width of the gripper fully opened is 50 mm, or roughly 2 inches.

More designs, sketches, and 3-D models to follow!
