Jack the Ripper 3d printable optical media ripping automation robot

"Jack the Ripper" 3d printable optical media ripping automation robot will help you move tons of DVDs or CDs trough the optical drive.





From project website:
Aims were:
  • Modular software and hardware design
  • Open source
  • Reliable
  • Low cost
  • Using off-the-shelf electronics
A stack of discs are placed into the “in tray”. An arm moves over to the stack and grabs the top disc. The disc is then lowered into the drive tray. Ripping takes place. Once complete the disc is removed from the drive tray and the arm takes it over to the “out tray” and places it there.
A Raspberry Pi is used to control the robot and a PC is used to control the overall process and the ripping.
