Wondering whether there is a readymade component that could be used for the fluid delivery arm? It would need to be able to be moved vertically and horizontally to deliver the water. Looking for something small and light, maybe 10cm. Thanks!
Welcome to the forum!!
How much weight were you looking to move?
If it isnt too much a pan and tilt kit (usually used to move a camera around) might work!
I’d take a look at this one here: DF05BB Tilt/Pan Kit (5kg) | DFRobot FIT0045 | Core Electronics Australia
Let us know if thats what you’re looking for or if its something else!
What kinds of liquid volumes do you need to deliver (m^3/min)? This will greatly impact the design.
It’s a good idea though, has merit.
Looking at 1-2 litre / min. The tilt/pan kit Liam suggested looks ideal, though maybe a telescopic arm of come kind may work too.
Do you have some drawings of what you want to do?
Unfortunately, Core doesn’t stock any off the shelf telescopic arms If you have a 3D printer there are lots of designs floating around the internet!
