As you know in calibration mode individual servo arms never quite line up perfectly. Is there a table on series of lines in the firmware code where adjustments can be made to line everything up perfectly?

I really like the design of Starrley over the Verpal which is a little to kid like for me.

Again great work and thanks.

the installation of servos should be done while in calibration mode, so you can adjust them to balance the robot; we didn't meet the situation you mentioned, can you show a photo of your case? You may also try the trim mode https://vorpalrobotics.com/wiki/index.php/Vorpal_The_Hexapod_Trim_Mode_Guide

Hi again, can you also operate this via smartphone apps like with your spidey or is a remote mandatory for this one?

Currently it is with the gamepad as we have no one to do app development. But we hope people can contribute on this. Basically the app just need to implement the protocol mentioned in vorpal wiki https://vorpalrobotics.com/wiki/index.php/Vorpal_The_Hexapod_Radio_Protocol_Technical_Information with a UI just likes the gamepad.

Existe t'il un tutoriel en français pour le câblage et la programmation ?


Super Hexapod

Is there a French tutorial for cabling and programming?

Thank you

google translate can help you.

Hi, absolutly great project. I have a question. Will this work if i use arduino mega as well?

Thank you.

you will need a lot of modification and a different set supporting electronics; so we highly recommend you follow the BOM we suggest; it will be much easier for you to make it.

Hi, love this hexapod, going to build it with my little one soon.
Does the hauduino use any custom libraries?
Would this code work with a standard nano and expansion board instead as I'm struggling to get hold of a hauduino.

the code is modification of vorpal hexapod it will run on arduino nano; we use huaduino because it is compact, has strong internal power regulator able to supply enough power to 12 servos, charging the battery directly and it is not expensive; the 3D models are designed for it so any change of the electronics will not fit you have to remodel them. So strongly recommend you follow the BOM as we suggest.

Thanks, will keep trying to find a decent place to get a hauduino in the UK.
Otherwise, I should be able to do minor modifications and still keep this almost the same.

Thanks again, awesome project.

Further CAD check showed also that pivots of leg are not inline. What happened here? This design seems to be full of flaws.

And our design is perfect well as you see our build and other person's build of the robot. What problem you have, assembly or printing?

I made some testprints of leg parts upfront. The parts come out nice without support. But I have no clue why the shafts have that big gaps designed in? Shaft is 5mm for 6mm hole.

there are tolerances to help the servo arm to fit onto it; and most of 3d printers will not print very accurate, dimension of tolerance is tricky.
