Spidey: an open-source robotic platform

Recommended Posts

Posted · Spidey: an open-source robotic platform

Hello everyone!

Here is a presentation video of Spidey, an open-source robotics platform you can make with 3D printers and ROBOTIS parts:

 

BTW, the "gold" robot on this video was printed with an Ultimaker²

Do not hesitate to ask if you want to make the same bot yourself and you have questions

Do you have a BOM for the non printable parts for the four leg configuration shown?

That`s pretty cool. Give us an estimate, how much total price to build :) ?

Great work!!!

Very fast compared to others I saw.

The customizeable leg quantity is als great. Do you think it's convertable into an ant-like design too??

You mean with an articulated body?

That would be doable, are you familiar with OpenSCAD or Autodesk?

Yes, that's what I mean.

@OpenSCAD & AutoCAD: Unfortunately not - just SolidWorks.

Beside the body, my concern is mainly if the steerability would be affected as the position of the legs will change a bit...

In this case you could re-design just the body using SolidWorks, there is PDF drawings that may help you in the repo

We already made such articulated robots, like this one:

Which is not fully released, but can be already found as "gecky" in the repo sources

The code should be adjusted but it appear to work

:-) thanks for the info.

Hope to find time to built one as I love to have it im my RC collection.
