Triple Delta robotic arm with extended reach and flexibility

Triple Delta is robotic arm project where three delta mechanisms are connected together to get more movement freedom and longer reach. It can operate outside of standard volume for the same sized single delta arm.
Since there are many moving parts there is a long way until making it precise enough to 3d print with. You will probably see it first in some small home manufacturing robotic line moving and manipulating parts. In theory if you know delta mechanics you could make it yourself, I have note found any instructions or guides. You could go wild and add more Deta arms and make it a quad Delta or pentaDelta ...
It is developed by Aad van der Geest. Great work Aad! Hopefully we will see more information on your project!
