Hi @billygo,

Your project sounds very nice!

However, what you’re trying to do is so far away from Niryo One, it’s a total different robot. I’d advise you to start either from scratch, or from another type of robot.

A few tips:

– Maybe what you need is a simple cartesian robot, with 3 translation axis, and no rotation.

– With a gantry robot the gravity is upside down, so it changes many parameters for your design (for example, Niryo One doesn’t work upside down)

– Check out Grbl and Marlin firmware. Those can help you see how to actuate your robot.

– Use simple aluminum profiles for the main structure of your robot, instead of 3D printed parts. You’ll gain precision and will be able to increase the reach limit easily
