Hey guys,

so i need another time your help to translate into word what i want. :)

i want my robot to have a concrete head dispenser so i can print let say a tiny house for the dog or a wall.

i would need a pump i guess - a tank for the concrete - a thermal something and mixer to keep it liquid - and then a concrete head dispenser to dispense my concrete and 3d print the dog house !? does that make sense ?

I've look all over the grabcad (dot) com to something like that but didn't find any STL.

robot had a payload of about 10 kg  lets say  the dispenser should have and output diameter of about 1 inch shouldn't be to heavy on robot payload the pump and all that should be outside of the robot cell.

also if one puts the bot on a rails maybe you can have even more working place

what do you guys think stupid idea  !?

Hi
In my opinion a really cool idea, but pretty expensive and time consuming for just a dog house ;)

I found this topic that could maybe lead you little bit to the right direction and help with the decision to even start the project:
https://www.robot-forum.com/robotforum/general-discussion/move-extrusion-head-with-robot/

As the first answer to the linked topic says it could be a really wide and complicated project where you need a lot of new programming and hacking of different parts, I would suggest you checking out ROS (http://www.ros.org/). As its all open source and running different languages it could maybe simplify your software package. There is a Fanuc driver for ROS (http://wiki.ros.org/fanuc_driver) and I also found this tool for generating the paths:

And here the video about it:

Be aware that these tools are in experimental status. Depending on your knowledge and how important it is that the project will be something productive, you should take this into account.

Let us know about the progress of your project.
