Hi. Your hexapod project is the best I've found. Decided to repeat. There was a problem with printing. Very thin wall in parts of legs where the rivet is put. Could you please share the project source files so that I can fix it myself. Or fix yourself. For the answer please write to me on mail teryaevav2@mail.com. Thank You, Alex.

which servo controller is used ?
and does it houses space for a raspberry pi ?

It's a great project (and already printed it) but could be cooler with some code or something ?!

after printing one, I found that the middle segments of the leg were ill fitting to the extent of being unuseable and the socket for the pin on the other side broke. however, the end segments fit perfectly to the hip segments, suggesting this design has been modified- if so, is there a link to the original?
also, must the servo leads be cut to fit through the mid segment?
(I printed in PLA)

Very impressive. I've seen others done but not on a 3d printed framework and not with such an elegant circuit. Very cool.

Would be nice to have details on the electronics as well, software/code, installation instructions and so on.

Any clue if the newer SG92R would fit as well?
