Rapid prototyping of Cartesian robots
Contraptor is a DIY open source construction set for experimental personal fabrication, desktop manufacturing, prototyping and bootstrapping. Fully reusable set of parts enables quick assembly of functioning linear stages actuated by leadscrews or belts without the need for custom fabrication. Various Cartesian robots can be rapidly and inexpensively built from Contraptor and used as a prototyping platform for projects such as lab robot, novel 3D printer, XY plotter or mini CNC machine.
