Hello,
My name is Alain

My passion is robotics.

I do not want the success of Zenta.
I looked to buy the "A-Pod" at the beginning before I understood what had a personal creation.
My motivation, recreate based on photo and see it evolve in its environment.
The XBee diy remote control is also underway.
I Do not Know Where i can ordered textured abs. What a shame!
Project Started on December 21, 2011

Hi,

So far it looks very good!

A little hint, i often use French curve ruler set when drawing non circular curves like when I design the tibia.

I find them very useful.

hi Zenta.
I do not know where I put mines! :(

All is handmade with saw and files.
The most difficult is to draw on the abs. use the iron to transfer the sketch does not work with the abs that I had.
I started the second leg...


I'm still missing aluminum

thanks for the hint.

Lotta nice curves! Must be a pain to do with French curves. It's been quite a while since I was taught to use them in school. I've got CAD/CAM for that now.

Yes,it is. 2 to 3 hours a piece. the body 6hours.
it is a satisfaction to do it by hand. with a flat file and one round. abs sheet, is easy to cut.
I modified a mf70 but must redo the sketches.
I have not used it yet
