|Mojo Leg mk3 w/servo frame
On top you will notice my first sketch at a frame for the robot. This was a quick sketch to see how things will fit together and get some ideas on how best to scope out the support for servos and controllers.
Many learnings from this iterations - so there will be some design tweaks to come.
- Screw sizes need refined - Rainer at the Inventors meet up gave me some good ideas on how to tune my 3D printer for this.
- the Serial Actuator is going to need an overhaul. This prototype is not working and more resembles a mock up. It fits, but is not functional.
- the Frame will need to be wider, longer, and space for the knee actuators and controllers.
- On the Up side, a bit more practice with the CAD is yielding better results in my builds. Practice always helps - and you get this only from trying!
With a little more success I am working to have a test with the servos to see if they can lift the legs. I have thought that these 9gm servos will be too weak for the end result, but good enough to start.
