I have also had this thought, I was even debating modding an ender 3 with a hobby mig
Finally i can mass produce metal buttplugs.
The future is looking bright, bros
You could just turn them on a CNC lathe for like $10k less than the robot arm
You also need to write a slicer that takes into account melt zone mechanics, understand how fast or slow you can go without inducing geometry errors, size the robot arm so it can move at the speeds you want, and design your parts around the limitations of the physical processes.
need someone to do what Naomi Wu did to crowdfund and build the CR30
Make sure to slap art of the cartoon big tiddy avatar on the boxes AND the robot, therefore making it impossible to recommend to employers.
It's funny how much bullshit jargon you said.
t.actual advanced robotic welding guru.
Ah yes the master of a real life skill who just so happens to browse the right win, weeaboo incel capital of the internet. Tell us more, oh wise retard.
Ask me anything about the cutting edge robotic welding technologies and I will answer.
I have to admit however---my knowledge in laser welding is limited (non-existent).
have you ever built a robotic dildo that attaches to your nerve cords on your tailbone to build a robotic limb dildo to fuck your own ass like the gay you are?
That sounds extremely erotic man
What would be the best way to diy something like this? CNC frame + mig? What about slicer-type software? Or should we stick to CNC plasma cutter if we are going to do a crazy project of this nature?

You'd be better off buying used robotic equipment--many of them are still compatible to use with offline simulation programming software---combined with thst and a little tinkering with weld parameters--you can make interesting shapes.
What's really fun is creating programs with commands that offset and timers and what not.

You're probably not going to get functional and accurate prints by just slapping a welder on a robot arm.
If you have good tooling, i.e. the way you attach the mig gun to the robot and how secure it is---you can program the tool centre point. If the robot is "mastered"---then it should print do a good job layer welds into a shape. Back in college it was a fun project that someone took on every year--trying to advance known knowledge or making more zany shapes.
Metal 3d printing takes software to "take the inverse" of the warping that will occur. Only then can you make stuff like this.
That's nice but it's far beyond DIY to fab the equipment unless you're already a skilled professional and have shitloads of money and have facilities like picrel. Otherwise it's just a tech fantasy and belongs on PrepHole not PrepHole.
just connect it to chatgpt and let it figure it all out.
Köningsegg made some motor by additive manufacturing I think, but in a home shop? Waste.
Buy a rotary head and various wood cutting tools like those stupid (when hand-held) angle grinder discs with chainsaw chain edges. Then robocarve whatever at leisure while you do something else.
You could CNC custom gun stocks, bowls, and especially wooden dildos (the fetish market has money) and sex toys you sell as art.
>stupid (when hand-held) angle grinder discs with chainsaw chain edges
What is wrong with these? Dangerous?
imagine the amount of gas
>Flood box with gas
>enclosed vacuum in metal
I took me quite a long time to work out why this wouldn't work. You wouldn't be able to strike an arc since there would be no gas to ionise.
Oh good point. Dang, you'd need magic lasers and throw powder at it out of a jet printer head and matte metals or something.
Could do it with plastic though,but getting airtight layers would be a nightmare
You could probably strike an arc with shielding gas injected through a cup like normal, then keep pumping vacuum so any cavity that's enclosed will still be at reduced pressure
And of course, it wouldn't be lighter than air, steel is still too heavy, but maybe very slightly lighter than you'd expect from.buoyancy

>dog gets sleepy
>panic because you used zyklon accidentally
>calm when realize you got wooden door
You could even seal it with wooden doors.
How could I possibly make 6 million prints in just 5 years when materials and time are so limited by other factors?
german engineering simple as
you could also print a model out of a meltable material and cast it, one step more but lots of issues to tackle less
^Most practical way.
An arm like in your picture starts at $50k. Would be better to install the welder on a cnc mill imo, unless you need really big parts
Would be better to spend on conventional CNC because metal additive manufacturing is simply outside current DIY capabilities.
The seeming desperation to avoid CNC machining I find odd. A versatile entry level would be an open CNC knee mill like a Bridgeport EZ-Trak (my rich machineshopownerbro makes a mint from his) which if we have another recession I'll hunt for my home shop.
>consists almost entirely of parts printed on the very same machine
Great, robot that can make more of itself
