    Description

    #
    # Moved over from Takerbot's Thingiverse...
    #

    The "Z-mover" additionally can move the thing inside

    back and forth, which might be

    useful for a pen.

    Can also be used to move paddles for a rowing boat model ;-)

    Software from the YouTube video is availabe from here:
    http://www.askrprojects.net/additional/xyzarm.zip

    It additionally requires:
    - an Arduino or Chipkit-Max32 (or any compatible)
    - Processing (PC-control): http://processing.org/
    - G4P library for Processing: http://www.lagers.org.uk/g4p/index.html


    Notice that the fixture is only provided as an example and
    was constructed to hold an 11mm tube.
    You'll need to create your own, custom fixtures...

    WHAT TO DO:

    - Print the XYArm part.
    - Mount the 2 servos with small metal screws.
    - Create your own fixture:
       0° (servo, top)
       90° (servo, right)
       225° (rubber band, lower left)
    - Attach the fixture to the servos with sewing cotton.
    - Fix sewing cotton with super glue (knot or loop).
