Engineer turns a robotic arm into a sculptor with a chainsaw

Engineer Shane Whiton figured out how to create a sculptor from a robotic arm. True, the view turned out to be somewhat frightening.

The author of the Stuff Made Here channel has connected the Tormach robotic arm (its estimated cost is $20,000) and a chainsaw. With such a dangerous tool, a sculptor’s hand can, for example, carve a dog out of Styrofoam. This was done using CNC software.

It goes without saying that such a difficult experience was not immediately crowned with success. At first, Shane tried to get his hand to dance to a YMCA song. The chainsaw screwed to the manipulator burned down several times. The engineer collected the results of his experiments in a video.

The inventor also installed several emergency switches and emergency lights to alert when the terrifying death robot is doing its job.

“Don’t come near, I’ll kill you,” the robot says in an imperturbable voice.
