MechWarrior - Hexapod Robotic Platform

Walk around and stalk cats?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So for my final year project, I decided to do a Hexapod platform. Started out as an obsession and ended up as a money gobbling monster. (You know how it goes)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Concept:


Final Design:


Final Assembly:


So i've uploaded ALL of the CAD files and ALL of the manufacturing files to GRABCAD and i've added a short description of each component used at my BLOG. Honestly, i'm too lazy to duplicate everything here :P.

Maiden walk:

The programming here in this video is just a loop for illustration purposes. I still have to finish the programming for the PS4 controller and write proper gaits for it (Tripod,Wave & Ripple modes). Actually, now that i'm thinking about it there is still a lot of work to do. (Will it EVER end???? :D)
