This Hexabot was designed using Shapr3D on my iPad Pro. This took 8 revisions and 32 days to model, print and assemble. This was designed to use the identical electronics used in the Trossen Robotics PhantomX. Please visit the PhantomX Product page at Trossen Robotics for the electronics parts list as I used the exact ones.
I have installed the electronics and ran the test program to verify basic setup. At some point I will attempt to program this.
Uses mostly 2mm x 6 and 2mm x 8 hardware. There are a few pieces of 3mm hardware. The toes of the feet were designed to use 1/4" rubber vacuum caps that you can pick up at most automotive parts stores, this gives the bot a softer walk but more importantly some grip on hard floors.
This design was inspired by the PhantomX, but only thing duplicated was the electronics which were all purchased at Trossen Robotics.
The file labeled RH_Hexabot_Complete_v8 is not meant to be printed, it is for visual reference only.
UPDATE 9-26-17: I have switched to Fusion 360 and have been experimenting with the features and have been able to animate the legs to show the range of motion.
Requires a build platform of about 260mm x 155mm.
