Hexapod Emerges from 3D Printer

Hexapod Emerges from 3D Printer Matt Bunting is a student who’s been interested in building robots for many years. Finally at the University of Arizona he was able to do so, partly by using the University’s Dimension 3D printer. The very complex leg assemblies were printed in eleven hours, using a great deal of support material. The design was such that it was not possible to produce using conventional CNC tooling, but easy to do on the 3D printer. 
 
Adding electronics, sensors, software and a PlayStation 3 controller, Matt was able to get the amazing hexapod going. The hexapod learns how to move on it’s own, and the results are, well, quite eerie to watch. Well done!’
