Hexapod Update

So the new Hexapod hardware has been in use for a few weeks now. Thought you guys deserved some pictures of it assembled.

The hardware has bump stops so that it does not damage servos when in a closed position.

    Hi there!

    I want to build that too!
    We have a laser cutter and a Raspberry Pi.
    Where can I find instructions?

        HI, the hexapod uses 18 dynamixel ax-12a servos connected to raspberry pi and power supply. I designed all of the bodywork myself so i don’t have any instructions and unfortunately i no longer have access to the files otherwise i would share them online.
