I’m currently working on a project regarding a 3D printer, an A-pod robot and some awesome stuff found here on this forum.
Here I will try to share my experience with my hexapods and try to combine a tutorial on how to print an A-pod from a 3D printer and make it walking!
Let’s jump into it:

I will be updating this post quite often but I will only post a new message when it’s needed (a new version is available or important matter). Obviously I’ll respond to any question, or maybe I’ll be asking you guys if I find an issue. Anyway, please try to keep this thread clear and related to the original subject.
The first message in this thread was:
First of all, many thanks to Lynxmotion team, I have learned so many things just reading this forum… huge help from you that is very much appreciated (special thanks to Kurte).
Here is brief description of my project so you can see what I’m trying to archive:
- I’ve got a SCC32 board + Bot Board II (with BAP28) + PS2 Controler
- I’ve got a 3D printer
- I’ve got 25 servos.
= I am building an A-Pod (ant)
The code itself is not a problem (yet) because I’ve already spent several hours building a small version of a phoenix using an Arduino Mega and 9g servos. That works greate.
For my A-Pod project: Before printing the parts, I want to make sure that all the parts can be assembled toghether without issue, therefore I have designed them using Solidworks.
Then I realised that some parts are already provided here (that’s awesome!): lynxmotion.com/s-5-ses-3d-models.aspx
Unfortunetely I couln’t find the files for the entier robot (A-pod), so before I carry on with my Solidworks files I wanted to know if someone already did them? Otherwize I’ll be more than happy to finish them and provide them to the community, but that is time consuming and I think it’s a shame if someone already did them.
Thanks in advance.
