The reason I have been investigating Inverse Kinematics, is that I am thinking about building a Backgammon playing robot. My idea is to use a SCARA type robot to move each of the pieces with a suction cup.
So taking the lessons I learnt with the previous post, I wrote a tool to determine the mechanics of such an arrangements. Given two arms, the actuator must move at least to each location on the board. This following utility allows me to input the sizes of a backgammon board and experiment with various sizes of the arms.
Click on the canvas to position the end point of the arm.
Adjust the parameters, then click the update button to set them.
All values in mm
