Robotics are a key component of the Industry 4.0 and therefore there is an increased demand on related skills and dexterities. Robotics are in the core of the related educational aspects and robotic manipulators are of great importance.In the current work, we have designed a robotic manipulator using a parametric modeling software, considering different constraint including but not limited to the potential motors and electronics that might be used for developing the real manipulator, the potential development using 3d printing techniques.The detailed CAD model was imported in Matlab and a simplified VRML model wasdeveloped. A simplified interface that allows the movement to the simulated environment was also developed. We also provide simple routines that allow kinematic analysis of the manipulator.The scope of this work was to provide a tool that will allow the users to understand the basic principles of the robotic manipulator’s movement and perform simple kinematic analysis.
