A scaled-up version of a MEMS based six degrees-of-freedom precision manipulator has been designed and built. A model necessary for control purposes was validated with experiments. These experiments show a great resemblance between model and mechanism. A closed loop control system with feedforward has been designed and implemented which resulted in a tracking error according to the specifications
