This is a hexapod robot designed to using 18 servos. The servo used are Ripmax Micro SD200, please check servo model to confirm fit with your servo.


All fixings are M2, M3 and M4.

The Lower servo pivot is secured with a M4 screw with washer.

All the other parts should assemble as per the complete assembly model.

Control is up to you, if you are think of building this you are probably ahead of me.

Feedback welcome, enjoy.

I have printed 25 of my enlarged version of this and am at Boy Scout Camp where 18 boys and 5 leaders are building them. They are a mad mix of colors and controlled wireless with a PS2 controller. When camp is done and the last modifications are final I will upload everything to thingiverse. We just added eyes which are ultrasonics. I will put some pictures on youtube and post a link when I get a chance. It takes about 120 hours to print the 53 parts for each hexapod.

I am using this project as a starting point for a Hex-A-Pod, I am enlarging it to take HK 15298's and will run it from an Arduino. When done I will credit Barry_scott for the original design. I really like the fact that MG995 or MG996 are a much less costly alternative for the HK 15289. The 15298 cost $19.50 @ HobbyKing and the MG995 & MG996's can be purchased for under $7 each on ebay.

this doesnt click together right?
