Step A. KISS. Clone someone else’s work on a linkage hexapod.
~$ git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:Hexabot-Build-a-heavy-duty-six-legged-robot/
haha I wish hardware was as easy as software to duplicate.
- Acquire materials
- Steel stock
- Apply CAD (scale up, can motors handle? torque calcs?)
- Apply controller to motors (make original one? probably stick with relays)
- Learn welding (MIG or TIG)
- Build build build
in the meantime, I learned a bit of serial by asking Leighton, a hallmate, so now I understand the pololu code.
