Hexapod Robot CNC router

Robot Projects

A Walking Router!

Postby datura » Tue Nov 11, 2008 4:09 am

Hey Matt,

Nice work, man! I found your robot via boingboing and it's a great inspiration. It was especially cool to see your blog and see not only the current capabilities, but all of the work it took you to get here. I haven't researched yet, but that 6 legged robot is a kit of some sort?

I really love the idea of a walking router and it seems like it's not too far of a stretch from where you are now. I say go for it! All you have to know is position and orientation, right? I imagine version 4 of this thing pooping out little beacons before it starts its programmed labor of sculpting out beautiful frescoes and replicas of Michaelangelo's more tasteful works.

Cheers,

A Robot Lover in Texas

Great job!
Do you plan to check if this robot could cut a soft plastic while walking with appropriate accuracy?
This could be a wonderful alternative for expensive table CNC routers.

After being pestered by a you tube member who became obsessed by the missing 8 minutes during the first detail pass in the original CNC hexapod footage, I have just uploaded a new cut, with just the first pass footage, and a soundtrack to save the ears! It also has the new hi res view option :)





I haven't found a way of forcing the hi res version in this embedded player.. to see hi res you will need to click through to youtube and select the hi-res option bottom right of video.

Whenever I watch the video I always forget to ask where's the soundtrack from?

Cutting 3D face


To cut the face I did three passes:
1) roughing cut
2) X raster finish
3) Y raster finish.


The face took just under 30 minutes to produce.
