3D model description


This 3D printed laser/torch/camera pointer has been created using common and affordable elements from the 3D printed World (NEMA 17 motors, Linear bearings, timing belts...)

The idea was to create a reliable, fast, modifiable and accurate "pointer" robot. Fix to this robot a small camera, webcam, flashlight, sensor... and control it remotely. The Python code will let you move the robot, autonomously, following pre-set movement patterns with precision.
The control APP has been created with Python

Take a look at it: Laser pointer 3D interactive model
We have written a detailed assembly guide.
Arduino and Python code can be found on its projects webpage :
The control code has been written in PYTHON, and it has been thoroughly explained and commented for easy understanding. There are several control examples here
All the links to code, videos, specifications, assembly guide...etc can be found here:
NEW!: Added Xbox/PS4 controller. Now you can control the laser pointer robot using your PS4/Xbox controller
If you want to save the hassle of getting the different elements from different sources and want them all fast, create your own custom Robotic KIT here (and add what you really need)
This robot uses the same electronics and motors you would need to create the:

Air Hockey Robot
Sphere-O-Bot (eggbot MOD)
B-robot EVO 2 (and more to come...)
Camera Sllider Robot
Pybot Robotic Arm

Getting tired of one robot? Create another just printing the 3D parts!
