Wire Bending Machine

From Open Source Ecology
Jump to: navigation, search


  • A device into which semi rigid wire is fed, and is bent using servo motors to make it into various shapes
  • Can be used to make springs, wire frames, hooks, and other simple componets
  • Would Probably cost ~$50 using OTS servo motors (2 Small Servo Motors, a control circuit (arduino and a shield), and some 3d prin ted parts + various bolts etc
  • More complex versions could be made to make more complex designs, or be faster (Some industrial machines have very high speeds such as this one )
  • Can have 2 axis or 3
