I started the design on Solidworks of the legs and the body.You can get the servos parts from Hovis and open them in Solidworks.
I made some very accurate plan of the hexapod that I can follow for the design :
This is just the beginning, so the exoskeleton is not yet finished, but this is more or less the future look of Animabot. I have of course to integrate all the electronic parts, and as you can see, there so so much space in that 😉
The hard part is to find a way of fixing the servos on the exoskeleton (I don’t want to use glue or crap fixations) in a way that I can assemble all the hexapod or replace a part in case of damage. I want to be able to assemble/disassemble it with screws (same principle as with a toy or a laptop).
So still a lot of work to do ^^
