SwivelHips Kit for the HiTecRCD RoboNova-1 BiPedal Robot
by SolidWorksMagi, published
This is a MakerBotable kit to modify a RoboNova-1 and add another DOF so the legs can pronate and supanate while keeping the height of the RoboNova-1 very nearly the same as the original 30cm height ... and this allows for the c.g. to remain lower for more stability. I upgraded the servo drive horn with splines on the inside bore ... albiet I don't have a caliper that small ... I'll can only eye-ball and guess.
This kit will make your RoboNova-1 slightly wider and thicker, but even side-by-side they appear very much the same size.
And as usual, every part here is designed to be MakerBotable with a CupCake MakerBot ... except for the rubber band ... get one from your local post office!
I wish I had a MakerBot to actually build and test my creations!
See a video demonstrating the added value and size comparisons. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WgHBmt8g67w or see the animated .GIF http://www.brainless.org/MultiMedia/Pictures/SW-Portfolio/MultiMedia/SwivelHipsNova-1+RoboNova-1.gif
I plan on uploading the aluminum bracket SolidWorks .SLDPRT files to the 3D Content Central Library soon ... http://www.3dcontentcentral.com/Search.aspx?arg=wperko
This is another of many entries to the makezine.com/go/makerbot contest ...

MakerBot the pieces ... one of each except for the Front/Back parts where you make two of each ...
Make me a couple of sets if you can ... I wanna upgrade my RoboNova-1 too!
If you successfully make this with a 3D printer please send me the build-file and machine type so it can be uploaded here for others to use.
