These are the printed Parts for a Micro-Hexapod, working only with three Mini-Servos.
I need to solder the electronics on an already etched PCB and try everything, after that, you will also get the Files for etching your own PCB, but you can also build the electronics on hole-matrix-boards
I made this thing in Cinema4D. The source-file is attached.
WARNING: I just found out that the back-and-front-legs are badly designed. I dont know why the first came out so great, but than I broke one of them and had big problems re-printing it, because they all broke when I was re-drilling the holes.
I will redesign the legs and change the file! If you rebuild the robot, I am more than happy for every alternative leg-design you come up with!
Re-Drill the holes with a drill!
Attach to the Servos with hot-glue. Be careful to not let any hotglue drip into the servo
These Instructions will be expanded, as more an more files are uploaded.
The upright-standing servo should be glued with hot glue, but also attached with some wires that you can pull through the holes next to the upright standing Servo in the middle.
