That's pretty rad 8-)

I like the sound it makes when it walk! 8-)

can u post a link to a vid with that thing moving?

really like to see it :)

good job!

IT's very creepy and insect-like when it moves. It's great. The flickr link is a video: http://www.flickr.com/photos/moleofproduction/5318014248/http://www.flickr.com/photos/m...

I'm making a couple modifications and re-printing some of the parts in lighter colored ABS ( it's impossible to take good pics of the black stuff). I'll post more vids as I go.


I really start to understand the idea of printed Designs. I was really happy when I saw that someone picked my Idea and started to improve it!

Great work so far, can you please make some photos and upload them also?

Cheers Ijon

PS: Probably I just use your leg design to solve my problems...or s
omething similar...

Thanks, Ijon!

The legs in my design are a little too long: my middle servo is getting a lot of wear. It works best with the front and back legs spread in a V shape (X shape?) and everything needs to be balanced. Also, the holes in the servo arms need to be drilled out and carved to fit the servo gear. Friction
wasn't enough to hold mine in. I had to cut apart the arms that came with my servos and weld them into place.
