3D Print EOAT for SCARA SR-3ia

  • Hello FANUC Forum, I'm here again with another new person question. I am interested in 3D printing End-of-Arm Tooling (EOAT) for the SCARA SR-3iA robot I have. Are there recommended sites or repositories of drawings I could use to 3D print parts?


    I want to setup a simulated dispensary operation. Here is a video link of inspiration:

    Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you to others who have helped along the way, especially to provide inspiration on the simulated dispensary demonstration.

  • Measure the diameter of the ball screw on J4, then revolve a profile around an axis with that as the size for a hole in the middle, save as .3mf or .stl, and print it.

    Check out the Fanuc position converter I wrote here! Now open source!

    If I used the attached specs I got from FANUC. You're saying create a removable clamp into the 18mm diameter that can fit around the 20mm diameter. A hole in the middle can then be used to put a vial (separate attachment) to what is 3D printed.


    Sorry, I want to make sure I go through this process correctly.

  • Since it is for demonstration, I probably wouldn't bother with a clamp. Just size the J4 hole so that it is a very light press fit. Friction would keep it in place.


    If you wanted to be fancy, you could do a clearance hole for J4, and then a hole from the side, and clamp to the flat on J4 with a cap screw.

    Thank you! When you say "size the j4 hole" do you mean the 20 mm diameter hold (referencing the attachment in my previous post). I understand conceptually what you're saying but trying visualize it all together. Thank you so much for the patience!
