Really awesome - but as pointed out by another user, an assembly guide could be usefull.
I might consider creating this - but I am not quite sure about how to wire things, and get everything assembled. Pictures of the electronics, wires, motors, assembly and so on would be extremely useful.
If I decide to start printing and assembling, I can probably offer to write some sort of assembly instruction - but it will most likely require input & support by the creator of this wonderful thing :-)
Also, one of the used servos seem relatively expensive (Hitec HS5645MG) - would https://www.ebay.com/itm/323239678029 be an usable alternative (check https://servodatabase.com/servo/hitec/hs-5645mg vs https://servodatabase.com/servo/towerpro/mg996r - MG996R is a bit larger, but how much - http://klinikrobot.com/images/stories/tower%20pro%20servo%20motor%20mg996r.jpg / https://www.makerstore.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/ELEC-MG996R-1.png)? And maybe https://www.ebay.com/itm/141975884979 could be used for the PWM instead of the adafruit shield (looks like the same PWM chip, the question is whether the EEPROM on the adafruit shield is being used).
I have been looking at Github for the code - but honestly I am in doubt about what exactly is required to be loaded onto the raspberry pi to control the figure.
If the figure is created in Fusion360, having access to the F3D file would probably ease the assembly - as it would be easier to see where the different parts belong.
If interested in getting a guide created, feel free to contact me by private message.
