If you are a fan of cosplay, props and hand built creations you can’t miss the work of James Bruton. Based in Uk he’s got a personal project YouTube channel with a new video every week describing his work in details. At the end of June he posted the 34th “episode” of the project started nearly a year ago about building an Iron Man Hulkbuster giant suit you can actually wear!
In the video below you can follow how he’s sorting out the arm mechatronics for the elbow, hand and cuff weapon with some 3D printing with Lulzbot and controlling the interaction with Arduino Uno (electronic part starting around minute 10):

OpenSAM by OHM – a 3D Printed Camera Stabilizer:
Welcome to OpenSAM, our 3Dprinted self-built three Axis stabilizer. It is handheld and the entire mechanical construct is built using 3D printed parts. Brushless motors ensure the camera is stable and they can be controlled using a joystick. The design is developed by three engineering students at the Technical University of Denmark.
Now gimbals like this may exist in plenty, but we think ours is unique because of its use of additive manufacturing. That makes the system very cheap to build and easy to reconstruct. All the files are open source and you can download them here.
Check out our manual: OpenSAM Manual (PDF)
All the files are available on GitHub.

Take any 3D printer, throw on this modular head, and use it as an EDM machine to do precise metal carving. Exciting stuff! What’s EDM? Electro-Discharge Machining or “spark erosion” is a fairly specialized field that not many hobbyists are familiar with. The technique flips traditional electrical design upside down […]
