Protoarm

This is protoarm (short for prototype arm), a 5-DOF robot arm adapted slightly from HowToMechatronics’ model that we built first to understand ROS, MoveIt, and the software stack for robot arms.

BCN3D Moveo Arm

This is the BCN3D Moveo arm that is fully open-source, built with steppers rather than cheap servos which have feedback control (a step up from the Protoarm), and is actually big enough to reach a full size chessboard. It also is much better designed and assembled than the Protoarm.
