This paper describes development of a 3-Dimensional Workspace Passive Cobotic Manipulator. The cobot has 3 dimensional workspace (x,y,z). Inspired by previous works of Scooter1 and Extreme Joystick2 cobots, the 3DP Cobotic Manipulator consists of a spherical ball and three steering Cobotic joints and mechanical links. The sphere-rotating axis is constraint to rotate about its own center. The ball has 3 C-space, roll, pitch, and yaw (φ, α, β˜) There is a two-link manipulator attached on top of the ball. The function of this links is to transform a spherical C-space, (φ, α, β) to the end-effector’s C-space (x-y-z).
