Attach your robot

How to attach your robot.

Full/Starter kit

The first thing to do before using your Reachy Full or Starter kit is to attach it safely.

There are two options to do that:

  • Using the metal bar included in Reachy’s package

Attach the metal bar to a table or a flat support using one of the metal fixation and screws:

If you don’t want to drill holes in your table, you can also use clamps between the table and the bottom part of the metal bar. However, make sure that the clamps make the attachment well tighten.

Then attach the robot to the metal support rod using the other metal fixation:

⚠️ WARNING! ⚠️ Make sure your robot is well attached and the screws tightened enough before beginning to use Reachy.

Note: Do not forget to put the antennas on Reachy’s head!

 

  • Putting Reachy on a moveable support

You might prefer to have Reachy installed on a support that you can move easily instead of a table. For some applications like mask distribution, having a Reachy attached to a table takes space and was not really convenient for us.

In replacement, we used a rollable TV support along with a custom 3D printed piece to attach the robot to it.
