Build Your Own Handcrafted Hexapod Robot


Build your own handmade hexapod robot. via instructables

You will be able to build this robot with handcrafting.

Watch the videos of the robot. You can build it in any size (don’t exaggerate – there is always a limit)

Hardware you need

1) 18 servo motors. You can see the link of the servos by clicking here. They will have additional connection parts and we will need them.

2) 3 or 5 mm PVC Foam board sometimes it called “forex” for building body and necessary supporting components. You can see it from my pictures

3) Servo cord extender. You can find it easy I guess.

4) Mini Maestro 24-Channel USB Servo Controller. I bought it from poll. Click here to see it.

5) 7.2V Li-po or corresponding battery (for powering up servos)

6) 4 AA 1.5V batteries. (for powering up servo controller)

7) Thin stick woods for kite building

Now it is time for software

As a Software what you need

1) I used 3D CAD programming called Inventor, You will need one

2) Download the software of servo controller from the link here.

Tools what you will need

1) Hot glue gun and sticks (magical tool)

2) Screw drivers

3) utility knife

4) steel ruler

5) pen pencil 🙂

6) copy paper

7) other necessary stuff you may need/

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
