Building my own robot with my own material
« on: January 16, 2009, 09:25:07 AM »
hi, im building a robot and i got metal and aliminum, i will form it my self but  if you look at this site: http://www.terminatorfiles.com/media/fanprojects/modelling_001.htm#stage05

and look at step 18 of 18, is it possible to make it like that or can i have a little more tin material that can make small movements with the fingers?

if I can put the fragile material almost next to the body and the hard aluminum / metal material furthest out on the body, almost as our skeleton
So the delicate material makes the movements and the hard material protects the vulnerable to break.
Would that work?

And whats the best glass material?
I wanna use some of  the Acrylic Glass/plexiglass as a building material
(It must hold very well for bigger robots, 100cm - 200cm
4-7 ft.

Hey Xerox,

For some reason using the heavy hard material sounds a bit confusing to me.  Typically, you would want to have your hard, heavy material as a support / structural material for the end effector of your robot.

I like Lexan as a glass-like material.

Hope this was some help?

How thick is it and is it  a very good material that wont brake the first time it hits the floor?
