Objectives: To perform a structural analysis on the design of the SIROBI3 robotic platform that matches the mechanical strengths on each of its parts for differents materials in order to make design adjustments and define manufacturing characteristics. Methods: The prototype performance is evaluated from its model in SolidWorks Motion and SolidWorks Simulation, for three different materials, analyzing physical and morphological behavior, under static conditions. We use mechanical performance in

Findings: The final result, i.e., the performance of the prototype with the optimum material, showed a significant reduction of the mass and weight of the robot, thus obtaining the reduction of efforts of the actuators and servomotors. In addition, the speed and mobility of the platform was increased. Novelty: The use of computer models to simulate the behavior of the robot under real operating conditions.
