About this project

First of all, I don't necessarily recommend that you attempt to duplicate this project, but how I made this contraption is in the video above.

The important elements are:

  • Lever Nuts - hold the Nitinol wire in place. Really impressed with these as they hold very securely and can work with 12-28 AWG wire.
  • 3D Printed frame to hold the electronics and fit in between the 'beests legs

Step 1: Files

Here is the Arduino and 3D printing files that I used.

Neither is optimized, so use at your own discretion.

Printed on a Monoprice Maker Select mini V2.
