Project Log 53: You know what, I think I should give up.

A project log for DIY Mech/Exoskeleton suit.

Mechs are not viable, nor cheap, so I will try to design and build one alone anyway.

Welp, sorry for my lack of content, I feel like I'm merely doing a "let's do it, let's do it, let's do it" and doing nothing monty python style.

Well, there was a giant ass text here on how I would make an electric motor from scratch, but screw this.


.... Argh, forget it, I think I should switch to hydraulics, electronics with 100+ amps is literally a death sentence.


I don't know what to do, to be honest.

I feel like I should just give up, but I also don't think I should give up...

... And the reason I did in fact, jumped into this mess is because I wanted to do it anyway...

The exoskeleton needs 900 watts per "stewart-platform-limb" needing 6 horsepower in total (4500 watts). I would need 10 times more for a mech with 1 ton of lifting force, 60 horsepower.

Of course, assuming the speed of movement is 30 rpm, if not, it can change drastically.

You would need 10 times less power with 3 cm per second, but what one would be able to do with 3 rpm of speed?

>Says mechs are not viable and expensive

>Tries to make one anyway

>Gives up because they are not viable and expensive


Well, it sure was fun tweeking with this "puzzle" of a project.

Maybe in a few years I will just appear with a full mech out of nowhere, lol

... Kidding it would probably be easier to make a micro fusion reactor than make a viable mech that is cheaper than a car.
