Makerarm Robotic Arm

Makerarm a digital fabrication system that can 3D print, laser, carve, plot, assemble, pick/place and is small enough to fit on your desk.

Makerarm, which at press time had raised $346,355 on Kickstarter, uses changeable tool-heads for all of the aforementioned applications and many more. You can even attach your own tool heads for custom applications. Makerarm uses a robotic arm to print, cut, and engrave objects within a 30-inch reach.

Perhaps the best part is all of this can be done right on your desk. Makerarm sits on a round base 4.72 inches in diameter. It is 24 inches high and the dual arm assembly provides a total arm span of 15.7 inches. Makerarm can rotate 180 degrees around its base, which means it can actually span 31.4 inches.
