We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
With this triangle connector you can build a robot with three servo legs.
(A frame for quadrupeds is included, too.)
Can it walk? I don't know, yet! :-)
Do you have ideas of a good walking method for tripods?
And it's a three finger robot claw, too!
For more details on the legs:
Watch this video of its static durability:
For this tripod you will need 9 metal geared servo motors (~12g).
Assemble each leg. Then mount the legs on the center triangle part.
The provided leg parts are optimized for servo gears with a diameter of 4.8 mm. You have to melt the inner surface of printed part using a tiny flame, to mount it on the servo gear. The part should not fit on the servo without melting it. If your servo gear's dimensions are different (>0.05 mm), then create your own version from the ancestor scad files.
You can use the four M3 holes of the triangle to mount the "head" (not included).
