A simple design for a quadruped robot. The robot should be easy to print on a small hobby grade printer (the one depicted was print on a Printrbot Simple Metal). The assembly doesn't requires screws/bolts , the parts click-fit together (0.3mm of tolerance).
#Updated 3.11.16 Based on feedback made some small changes to the design (larger room for electronics and better fit/lock system for the "belt") and uploaded a new set of STL.
For the electronics you will need 8 servos (9G.) a microcontroller a servo controller and power. The model in the picture use the following:
- Arduino Uno (https://www.adafruit.com/produ...)
- Adafruit 16-Channel 12-bit PWM/Servo Shield (https://www.adafruit.com/produ...)
- 4xAA Batteri holder (https://www.adafruit.com/produ...)
- 8x MG90S High Speed Micro Servo Metal Gear
The robot was designed using OnShape, a browser based parametric CAD software package. You are free to copy/customise the project. The link to the project is: https://cad.onshape.com/docume...
OnShape is free to use for up to 10 private projects and unlimited for public projects. You can read more about other quadruped bots at my blog at www.burningservos.com
