This is going to be a long and hard project - and a really expensive one too. I'm happy to take you along for the ride!
I thought that this was published when this project was published, but I guess it was not.
I would like to give credit to Paul Crouch. His Droidbot 07 gave me the inspiration for this project, and I strongly advise you to check out, follow, and like his project. Paul Crouch, if you read this, thank you for making such a amazing project that inspired me so much.
I want to start off by saying sorry for being inactive. I am taking classes and this project will be completed, but it is not the only thing in my life.
I have completed the 3-D digital model, but the application I used is not compatible with 3D printers or any type of metal cutting, bending, shaping, shaving, etc... machinery, and I want to give that option, so if you know of an app that is compatible with this kind of stuff please post it in discussions or email me at the address in the description.
Thank you all for following the project! It makes me feel much better that people are actually interested in what I am trying to do, and remember, if you have questions, comments, and advice, please post it in discussions, write a comment, or email me. Again, thank you all!
Sorry for the inactivity guys! So far for research I have decided on electric motors for movement, mostly because hydraulics and pneumatics are more expensive than the budget I have set for this project. I have also determined the body shape for the remote-controlled portion of the project. I will upload those files as soon as I convert my drawings into a digital 3D model. I still need to figure out how the exo-suit transition will function, as well as design it. I also have tons of aluminum tubes that I am going to try to make a prototype out of.
