From the Forums: 3D Printed Hexapod #3DxRobotics #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Here’s a video that RichardUK made of the 3D printed hexapod he created on the 3D printer he built over Christmas, shared on the Adafruit Forums:

I built my self a 3D printer over Christmas using the k8200 kit. And of course, first thing to print, some robot stuff.

I used the following hexapod 3d files with a little modification.

  • 5v Trinket
  • 2 micro switches
  • And three micro servos.

So that I don’t have to disconnect anything to upload new code I test for LOW on pin #3 (it has a pull up on it) and test for HIGH on pin #4 ( I added a pull down)
Pins 0,1,2 are for the servos.

Hope you like it. And thanks to Kitty and Mike for help with the issues I had.
