We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
This is a project to make an opensource robot that moves like a dog. Right now this project is more of an OpenSCad tutorial than anything else. However, I will be covering more aspects of the design when I have time.
The tutorial is in the form of a 10 minute youtube video.

The OpenSCad source code in this video is included at the bottom. I am intentionally not including STL files for now as I know the design will change.
Episode 2 "DogBot Math":
The Source files for this episode are included at the bottom in a zip file. Thanks goes to tbuser and http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2054 for supplying the openscad fonts.
