2015 FIRST World Championship Creo Modeling Challenge #4 - Robot Gripper Mechanism
Creo Parametric CAD Modeling Challenge
For this fourth Creo Parametric CAD modeling challenge, you will be creating a full assembly of the robot gripper shown below. You need to know basic Creo Parametric assembly constraints, Kinematic constraints and assembly structure to complete the design. It is a complex model to create, but you will need to master Creo Parametric Pin constraints to make it work correctly.
Assemble the gripper plate first and make sure it is grounded
Add all the hardware at the end
Create one side first to make sure it works as desired
After placing the gear, add a second constraint (Slot) using the curve (blanked on layer) to control the range of motion
Use a Parallel constraint for the gripper_tips to make sure it does not ground (fix) the whole model
