Another version of a hexapod/tetrapod robot. I took http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:30088 and http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:5784 and http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:31314 as a starting point. The point was to have a mini hexapod which actually fits the servos I am using (ES-05 by Modelcraft, 2,3 x 1,3 x 2,3 cm, about 6 EURO). Although I kept close to my predecessors most of this was done from scratch. The button is taken from http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:31314 :)


Just print it. I used a Makerbot replicator I. For the body I used a raft, the rest was done raft-less. The measure is in mm.
For assembly take a look at the pictures.
There are holes for the necessary screws but I had to enlarge them slightly. The servos fit perfectly. To attach the legs one has to remove the lid of the servos.
The 'bumps' on the body are meant to carry the control PCB and could/should be customized for Your needs.
Make sure the screws in the shoulder don't block the legs.
The servo buttons are inserted into the servo brackets but not glued to the servo casing (it seems stable enough). YMMV.
