After adjusting the bends of the FR07_H120 frames the idlers align perfectly.
Now I’ll continue making the rest of the HR07_I101 Bearing Idlers (still 9 to go) before starting to bend the frames for the second leg and start cutting the frames from the waist up. Anyway I am still waiting for some black dye to arrive before anodizing the frames.
I almost decided to buy the 4 Flange Bearings FR07_F101 needed for a DARwIn-OP clone. But it just took me one afternoon to cut them on the lathe and drill them on a mill.
I tested the assembly of a bearing joint as described in the DARwIn-OP Assembly Manual. I haven’t anodize the parts and it seems I’ll have a hard time disassembling the joint, the bearing is very tight.
The gcode cut programs are in the Code Section and zipped in File Section in sourceforge repository for cloning the DARwIn-OP Robot.
Now I can continue testing the full assembly of a leg of my DARwIn-OP clone.
