XY(Z)Arm

#
# 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...
