Application to Universal Axis
A simple method of mounting tools to the U-Axis carriage is needed that allows for quick changes by the user and eventually an automated tool changer system. A major question is can most parts be 3D Printed accurately enough and/or how many off the shelf parts are required. For a future automated tool dock and changer system, a method that does not require extra motors would be ideal. Perhaps activating latches and or gears by using the force of the insertion of a tool head into the dock.
