This is my variation of the Vorpal Robotics Hexapod. A little back story, I was doing a beta test and realized I wanted to have something sitting on my desk that I personally designed. So, I designed a more rugged/stronger hexapod robot. When the design was put onto the Vorpal Robotics website, people wanted to have the files. Personally, I really love the design process and feel that you should try to make your own variation!
Coming in the future: I have designed multiple clip-in attachments that are used for games, challenges, and for customization. Those files will be available within the next few weeks.

I designed this in OpenSCAD. After many (and I mean many) failed attempts, I finally got the design right.
