I am looking for a way to home the travel track. I have found that if you move the arm via the travel track and then shut down the robot, upon start up its "home" position is where it was last positioned. How could I wire in a limit switch and control the TT to find its home position when commanded or added into a program? Thank you.

I am at the stage now where I have verified encoders, limit switches, and displayed direction within the app are all good. So everything checks out as per the manual, however I’m still getting a collision error on J3. What am I missing that I should check? thanks in advance.

I am having a hard time trying to locate a correct diode for our pneumatic gripper some food valve. The valve is powered by 12Volts, but I just can’t seem to find anything that looks like Chris‘ picture. I have checked Digikey.ca but to no avail. can anyone point me in the right direction to acquiring a correct diode? thank you.

I am in the process of building the AR4 and noticed on page 176 of the manual that there is a J6 limit switch "tip". This is 3D printed and I can't seem to locate it within the zip file. Am I missing something? Thank you,

I have been designing a module gripper setup for a little while now. This is the prototype of the servo gripper. The mount and gripper have pogo connectors which allows for a quick swap if the user requires a different gripper. I hope to build 2 more consisting of a vacuum and pneumatic grippers. The vacuum gripper will hopefully accommodate dual suction pad grippers with dual mini vacuum pumps to operate each pad independently. I am currently sourcing parts for that one via AliExpress as it looks impossible to find suction grippers in Canada. if you have and criticism towards the build please let me know.
