New post: 3d printed hexapod robot

This hexapod was made almost entirely via 3d printing (translated ). The parts that you need to supply include a few fasteners to make connections, twelve servo motors, and a method of driving them. As you can see in the video after the break, all those parts come together into a little robot that functions quite well. The only thing that we think is missing are some grippy feet to help prevent slipping. [Hugo] calls the project Bleuette. It is completely open source, with the cad files and source code available on his Github repository . There is additional information in the wiki page of that repo. This gives us a good look at the electronic design . He’s controlling the legs with an Arduino, but it’s all dependent on his own shield which features a PIC 18F452 to take care of the signals used to drive all of the servo motors. The board also has some peripherals to monito...
