In this tutorial I will show you how I built an Arduino based 3D wire bending machine. This is actually a typical mechatronic system because it involves mechanical, electrical and computer engineering.

So therefore I believe many engineering students or anyone who is new into mechatronics found this project interesting.Watch the video by How To Mechatronics for more info:
Using a stepper motor the wire is precisely fed to the wire bending mechanism which also uses a stepper motor as well as a small servo for the bending process.
There’s also another stepper motor, called the Z-axis, which actually enables the machine to create three dimensional forms. Of course, the brain of the machine is an Arduino board which along with the other electronics components is attached on a custom designed PCB.read more(howtomechatronics)
