Terminator arm control 3D print model
This is the control system for my working Terminator arm replica project. My original idea was a lot more complicated, but I decided to simplify the design to make it easier for everyone to build. Paired with the arm, it now looks great and works well as a functional display piece.
The design uses thin fishing gut and small pulleys to transfer each finger movement from the control unit to the Terminator arm. Small nuts and screws will need to be acquired and are needed to attach the gut as well as to attach the control unit to the Arm base. It is a challenging build, but satisfying if completed correctly. After a year on my shelf, it still stands proudly, works perfectly and I still occasionally use it to flip the bird. :)
Have fun & enjoy!
