Here are some shots of the robot simulators I made :
Five Axes[^]
Six Axes[^]
Seven Axes[^]
I went with a Fischer-Price coloring scheme with them. The six axes one was more of an experiment with a "knuckle"-style joint. It was amusing. I spent the most time on the seven axes one by far, including an experiment with inverse kinematics. My first, brute force, attempt was not successful. Either that, or I just haven't found the right parameters yet. I have the forward kinematics down pretty well but I want to have it make straight moves so it can move through the tray of cans.

These use the old-style, v1.2 OpenGL graphics calls. Everything is built as display lists of polygons so I should be able to adapt it to the new-style of Vulkan some day. That's a goal anyway.

BTW - these use higher order, hand-made object models. No modelling programs were used. They are all cylinders, torii, spheres, and boxes.
