Hey! This thing is still a Work in Progress. Files, instructions, and other stuff might change!

Great design, I love it :)

Just as a suggestion, you could use these servo lids http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:30707http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...

Here's my first pass at some code - it does a cute, awkward lurching walk. There's lots of room for improvement though:


Just paste that into a .ino file and upload with the standard Arduino IDE.

You'll need to change the pin assignments, either physically on your Arduino or in the code to get the servos properly ordered.

Sorry for the wait. I've been very busy lately... :(
Now I'm trying to mount the full hexapod. When finished I will upload instructions and code. I promise!! ;)

Instructions still missing?

I really like this thing and I'm
considering a walker project next. Is the code for your
microcontroller available to look through?

My walking pattern still needs some
work but I'm excited it works.

Here it is responding to an IR remote.

Hi, The walking gait looks really good in it's current state - I was wondering whether you wrote your code from scratch or found some online? If you have anything I could use I'd be most grateful!

I wrote it from scratch. Here is the code its running in the video: http://www.filedropper.com/irwalkerhttp://www.filedropper.com/irw...

Sorry for the sketchy file host.

Hi i would like to se you'r code too.. mine is not running so smooth, and it would be nice with some inspiration :)

Yes! Thank you, i will have a look at it :)

I have got mine walking a bit while waiting :) But not as smooth as yours..



I had a problem with the servo buttons coming off the servo case.
So I created my first project :)
