Yes that sounds great, I will look further into the topic and hopefully be a member soon.
There is no special website or seller you can recommend other than to use google right?

I study at Bauhaus University Weimar and unfortunately our robotic/cnc options are limited.
I come from a farm in Germany and my father has a giant shed with concrete floor, so plenty of space even for the biggest robot. We do have a (Starkstromleitung) so I think electricity should work fine as well.
My main concern is to get a kuka robot with krc2 and than not getting it to work because of expensive software costs that I didn`t consider beforehand.
But as I have been reading in the forum it seems that there is the option to take the G-Code from Fusion 360 and use it for the movement of the robot arm, right?
Thanks a lot for your quick and informative answer :)!

General Discussion / Master Thesis with used Kuka Robot

Hi Im an architecture student that is about to start his masters thesis. Now I would like to dive into the topic of digital fabrication in my thesis.
Therefore I was wondering if you guys have any advice on the feasability of buying a used robot and experimenting with it.
I have the space to put it down etc. My budget would be max. 10.000€. I have a small cnc desktop machine that I´m using for personal projects.
I use Fusion 360(for G-Code) and mainly Rhino 5+6 for modelling.
So I have a bit of experience in the field of cnc milling and such but no experience with robot arms at all.
Is my budget anywhere near enough to get a used Kuka and all the extras to start working with it?
Any tips or ways to approach my idea would be greatly appreciated.
