BCN3D Technologies develops open source 3D printed ‘Moveo’ robotic arm for schools

 

Designed from scratch and developed by BCN3D engineers in collaboration with the Generalitat de Catalunya’s Departament d’Ensenyament (Department of Education), the BCN3D Moveo is an Arduino Mega 2560-powered, 3D printed robotic arm which could enable schools and colleges in Spain and elsewhere to teach students the basics of robotics, mechanical design, and industrial programming. When the Departament d’Ensenyament approached BCN3D one year ago regarding the possibility of an educative robotics project, the tech organization jumped at the chance to get on board.

An important part of the BCN3D Moveo is its open-source nature. As with all of its previous projects, BCN3D has made the files for the arm available on Github, where users can obtain the information—bill of materials, STL files, CAD files, etc.— to build and customize their own Moveo, at home or in the classroom. Unlike other BCN3D products, however, the Moveo won’t be commercialized, with users encouraged to build their own, free of charge.
