    Re: RX-64 Humanoid: Giger

    The gripper is pretty sweet. Any plans on releasing an AX-12 version?

    I'm not really in the robot parts manufacturing game personally

    I could very easily design an AX-12 version and publish the drawings though.

    Pretty cool Mech you have there!

    Congrats!

    I'd love for my (yet to be built) mech to destroy yours

    I feel split. Part of me wants to see that mech work, and then maybe not.
    'Cuz seeing that mech makes me really scared.

    And then... I remember that I'm in the hex league (phew!)
    Way to go, keep it up!

    @sam
    What type of mech are you planning to build? Biped? Quad? Maybe even Hex?

    There will be an Open League as well, where everything can battle it out

    Re: RX-64 Humanoid: Giger

    I'll try to get some video up this week, I promise! I've made a lot of progress on this over the weekend.

    Also, figured I would share some prototype hands I'm working on. These should be completely doable on my CNC, but I'm also looking at just using roller chain for the fingers as well. Currently this design needs to be scaled down a bit, but it's a start.







    And a 3 finger version as well:



    They would use zipties running down the inside of each finger, coming through a slot on the back of the hand and attached to the servo hinge bracket, still a work in progress and I'll likely scale them down a bit. Inspiration and design pulled from the "Melissa Hands"

    If the hand becomes too destructive (if at all), will it be declared hardcore? I mean, it IS an RX-64 powered hand. I saw the demonstration/"Public safety warning" video.

    It's just an RX-28 in there actually, and it's not really intended for strength. I have a straight up gripper that is more functional, this is mostly for aesthetics and the challenge of building it.
