The AR2 6-axis robot is an open source robot platform powered by an Arduino microcontroller. It can currently be 3D printed and build from low cost off the shelf components from online stores such as Amazon, McMaster Carr and Stepperonline. However if you are looking for a more robust version then the aluminium version is definitely worth considering.

The project includes a complete list of all materials and full instructions together with CAD files to 3D print components to build the robot, Arduino sketch for stepper driver control and software to program and operate robot as well as kinematic model.

All the 3D printing files and schematics can be found at the project’s GitHub repository.

The aluminum parts kit  is available to backers for $1,195. Check the Kickstarter page for more information.
