This 3D-printed hexapod robotic platform frame was designed and built from the ground up. It measures about 20" (50 cm) from leg tip to leg tip. Designed around the nylon gear 9g servo form, it is ready for motors, a servo control board, power supply and supporting software/controllers. You can take advantage of the built-in hardware assembly options or opt for a 90% zip-tie build!
Designed to operate as both a typical 18 degrees of freedom hexapod and also as a 'high-floatation' 12 degrees of freedom hexapod. The larger surface area is provided by the end segment of the leg laying flat on a surface like snowshoes or flippers. Designed for use with 9g servo motor. Sizing for different motors is available, just ask!
Custom colour schemes available. The model pictured is sporting a custom rack for 16 channel servo control boards (optional), other custom mounting structures available upon request.
Important note This product is an experimental platform only. It does not contain a control board, software, or a battery. Frame only. Control board(s) and motors are available as options. :)

I love that ideas can jump off a napkin, onto a computer, and off of a print bed; from idea to reality.
I have been 3D printing for a short time. I initially began my foray into electronics and 3D printing with a Raspberry Pi workshop attended with my son. Together we built a web-interfaced rover tank that could stream video via wifi.
Since then I have been playing reindeer games with flying robots, quadcopters and drones.
I am looking forward to developing my work into something that will help people learn, or help those in need of emergency assistance.
