As one of my bigger projects when my glowforge arrives, I’m planning a strandbeest like robot. I currently built one half of it (4 legs, will have 8 in total) in Fusion, and I’m satisfied with the motion and style, so I thought I’ll drop it here.
This will be quite big (about 60cm tall), and my hope is to be able to drive each half at a different speed, to walk in curves (should still be stable, but only just so for the worst-case phase shift). It will use M8 rods and nuts and 608 bearings (9 per leg, 2 per leg pair -> 80 bearings).
Note that the dimensions are not the classic Janssen set, but the ones optimized by @Scott.Burns here. The Fusion file is parametric, so I can switch the measurements out, and still get a working model - only the joints tend to freak out a little.
