Nice job on the video. I actually had no idea that OpenSCAD could do animations!

I like your video about openscad pretty helpful into into designing with it. Awesome project can't wait to see more. Will this be printable on a makerbot?

At DogBot's current state the print area of the makerbot would not be able to print all the parts, but the scad files are configurable. If you choose a smaller servo than I am using and pull back leg_upper_length from 65mm to 30mm, you'll have a smaller robot, but one printable on a makerbot! Or, someone in the community (possibly me if there is demand) can redesign the largest parts into multiple parts. So a makerbot print area should be big enough to build a skeleton, just not at current state.

I could scale it to use micro servos but I'll have to find 12 of them for cheap on ebay

You should create a wiki for the project!
