Is the code available for this somewhere?

I'd say its a new version, but not really a new design, as much of the model is akin to the Boston Dynamics Big Dog robot, most notably overall body shape, and leg articulation.

Got a video of it working yet?

I love that you shared the Onshape link! Rock on brother! Good work!

Hi Kris, thanks =) Currently waiting for a servo - burned two by mis-wiring them. I do have a clip of an 8DOF previous laser-cut version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iLZ0An1Peik

Nice! It reminds me of Boston Dynamics robodog. Have you seen it?

Here are some cool metal gear servo's that I've found. They might be good for heavy loads.

Yes, I'm a fan =) Those servos hit a good price/performance ratio, unfortunately I have had mixed results with some of them failing under heavy load running under their max voltage settings. I have had these recommended to me, but haven't tested them yet: https://www.dfrobot.com/product-1177.html

Nice! I may check them out too.
