We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
A hexapod with servo joints. This design is quite big and needs strong servos but looks really cool ^^.
I used 20 HD-2213MG Servos (http://www.servodatabase.com/servo/power-hd/hd-2213mg) . If you use other servos you need to modify the embeddings for the servos and servo horns. You may make the upper and lower legs shorter to get shorter leverage.
Finally the parts get assembled with M2 thread rod and nuts.
After your modifications you need to mirror the lower and upper legs as well as the servo casing ;)
This design is made for ~4.9mm (i used wood) for all parts except the ~1.8mm thick upper leg counterpart (with servo-horn embedding).
3 right upper and lower leg parts
3 light upper and lower leg parts
1 upper body part
1 lower body part
3 right servo casings
4 left servo casings
You should lazzzor-cut it in combined mode (raster&vector) to get nice embeddings for the servo-horns and nuts. (The embeddings should be solid filled with a color and have no hairlines)
I used M2 hex-head screw (12mm) as back axis for the servos.
I have added some photos to see how itâ€™s assembled. You need a lot of nuts and thread rod ;)
This is my first upload I hope it works for you.
