    seems like you're missing an axis of articulation in the wrist...shouldn't be lifting the object towards you...should be able to lift parallel to the plain from which it was lifted from....surely?
    Either that or the wrist articulation is in the incorrect plain

    Build Question:
    How do you plan to counter balance the machine? You can lift 7,000lbs (roughly) but the vehicle will be very front heavy and likely to fall face first.
    Are you adding a weighted backpack to the robot? It’s common in heavy equipment but this will affect the robots ability to walk.

    It would have been so much easier to put it together if they only had a power loader... you know, like the one from Aliens!

    So FYI, in your calc, it should be pi*D^2/4. You show 2, but the conclusion is still correct. :-)

      Hi Brandon, I show D^2/4, but thanks for the love

  • Paul Byrne
    Paul Byrne 3 months ago

    Your math is wrong. The area of a circle is Pi.R^2 as the radius (R) is D/2 then R^2 is (D/2)^2=D^2/4. You had D^2/2 which means that your force is only 50% of what you calculated...BIG error guys.

  • Bradley Weingartner

    Okay, from here that looks more like 3/8" plate. That's insane. Going to need an super heavy base for this thing not to fall over when it's all put together! Haven't done the math, but my intuition tells me 1/8"-3/16" plate boxed like that and reinforced in a few key areas would be more than adequate for those forces.
