Now that motor seems to be working and I have a couple of them made I started printing the robot body for the robot dog I'm building. The dog however deserves its own hackaday project, so stay tuned :)

Count me in for a group buy of the actuator!

nice work i like the design
Nice! I'm wondering where exactly did you get the gears and the aluminium cut? Looking to do some similar work for a split keyboard (I CAD it, send it off to china, get it back) and don't really know who's reliable...
hi FD! there is lots and lots of companies in China that will be happy to do it for you. algorithm: go google or alibaba. send 10-20 rfq. pick your favorite. easy ;)
Impressive project! Thank you for making the driver board open source, I'll have to try fabricating one. I especially like the simple commanding interface. Best of luck!
if you ask me nicely i can send you one :) you will need to buy your iwn motor though.
That would be wonderful if you have extra available!! I would purchase a motor driver board in a heartbeat. PM me the details if that's the case and we can work out the logistics. If your driver board ends up meeting the needs for my open source walking robot project (https://hackaday.io/project/163093-tiptap) it would really speed up my project timeline.
those motors are beautifully machined.
Great job with the project. Very nice machining. Did you custom wind the stator? Keep up the good development work!
Eğer cad dosyaları yayımlamak planlıyor musunuz?
super great job.
Looks awesome! Any idea how much torque you can get out of the servos?
I designed it (with help of freelancers) and then they were cut in China.
Gears also custom designed.
How much did it cost?
Wow, those are beautiful! Did you machine the parts yourself or job it out? Are the planetary gears custom or off-the-shelf?
Do you know this site http://sdp-si.com/ ? it is like Mouser of small gears and similar stuff. Prices are mostly not great. But they do provide CAD models and still nice option to have if you don't have much experience with mechanical design.
thanks I'll check it out!
