Visible Robot


The Visual Robot is a large working-envelope 3-axis robot, designed as the foundation of a desktop manufacturing workstation.



The Visual Robot is a large working-envelope—590x350x120mm (23”x13.5”x4.75”)—leadscrew-driven, gantry-style 3-axis robot, designed as a foundation of a desktop manufacturing workstation – 3D-printing, light-duty CNC, etc.


As heavier loads might be required of a workstation, either NEMA17 or beefier NEMA23 stepper motors can be mounted to drive the ‘X’ and ‘Y’ axes.


The Visible Robot comes as a set of 3D-printable .STL files and detailed post-processing, assembly, wiring and configuration documents. It also includes a bill-of-materials of all parts—with illustrations of the 3D-printable ones and suggestions as to suppliers for the purchased parts.


The controller, motors, leadscrews/leadnuts, couplers, shafts, switches, wiring and fasteners are to be bought separately and are not included.


Access to a 3D-printer is needed to print the plastic parts.
