Hexapod CNC bot

Hexapod CNC bot

[Matt has just recently started playing with CNC. First, he did a pen plotter proof of concept. Now The bot can mill 3D surfaces in polystyrene. It’s still a little coarse and will most likely always be a bit imprecise since it’s not bolted down.  there are also plans to convert it from standard 1/8inch bits to 3mm router bits.]

[This is Matt Denton’s hexapod robot CNC router.  The B.F. Hexapod was built using Hitech’s HSR-5995TG which are much higher torque than similar sized units. Each foot is ball joint mounted to ease terrain adaptation. Having no fixed work envelope really opens up the possibilities for machines like this and Hektor.]
