Some of you will be familiar with the project already, but for those who aren't this is my Hexapod V5 converted into a walking CNC plotter/router. I started with some simple 2D plotting using a floating pen, then built and added a routing head using a brush less motor usually used in R/C planes. A dremel collet adaptor was made so I could easily fit 1/8" toll bits to the router.
The most recent work produced from this setup is this 3D face machined from high density foam:
You can view the video of this face being created here:

And further back in time the first test using a pen attachment:
A picture of the router head prior to attaching to the hexapod. The red servo is used to raise the router out of the way while walking, but is not used for height adjustment during cutting. Once the router is lowered into position, the hexapod uses its body for X, Y & Z translations of the cutter.
I hope you like my project.. M@
