I like that new way of driving the arms. Very clean and simple
It's surprisingly smooth for a 3D printed gear too. I was worried the gears would be too small for my machine, but it's working great:

What will drive the arm movement? I’m guessing adafruit or arduino, which controls the up and down motion?

Also, would there be thoughts to getting these pieces made in aluminum? Or maybe resin cast?

The plan is to use a 9g servo with a slot on the arm to convert the rotary motion to linear. It's cheap, it's strong, and it's easier than the other options I've tried!

My plan for this project is to have everything 3D printable. I don't have access to an end mill or CNC so I wanted to keep it simple.

Dude that's awesome!

I can access cad files at work when a drawing doesn't give me a measurement I need but 3D printing hurts my brain lol!

onshape is completely browser-based and can be accessed from just about any device. you can open the file and measure any part or export components

Sorry everyone, I had my first child last March and this past year has flown by. I do have this project sitting on my workbench and I have a bit more free time now that he's getting a bit older, but it's still hard to find enough time to keep prototyping and printing. I also recently switched over to Fusion 360 which means I'm using OnShape less and will probably want to translate the project over. Either way, I do plan to keep working on it and hope to have some more progress in the coming months!
