  I made one too
Posted by: Dario#02 - 09-04-2019, 05:48 PM - Forum: Forum Member Builds - No Replies

I'm waiting 6336HV motors to be delivered.
I have used FLUO TPU for my foot ,top ,bottom, front and rear covers and PETG for all the rest.
All parts have been printed with DIY 3D printer "Hypercube Evolution". Search it on Internet if you don't know what is it! Smile

Hi everyone, I wanted to inform you that if needed I can create a simple App to give commands using the voice, maybe using accelerometer and gyroscope in your smartphone, or with a GUI.
You need a Bluetooth connection or a WIFI client. If it is not possible via Jetson, you can use a serial communication via HC-06 or an SPI via esp8266 / esp32 to jetson.
I apologizes for possible writing errors.

  CORE V1.00 Released
Posted by: brad - 09-03-2019, 04:00 AM - Forum: Getting Started - Replies (1)

Hi Everyone,

We've released a new version of the SpotMicroAI hardware, the CORE hardware.

The CORE hardware is designed as the minimalist version of SpotMicroAI, able to be built for the lowest cost while being able to achieve full walking. It uses a camera instead of ultrasonic sensors (easier wiring), and does not feature a LIDAR. Future branches of spotmicro may include additional sensors or LIDAR but the CORE hardware is designed to be accessible, easy to use, and low cost.

You can find the files at:

The 3D printable parts should be relatively stable at this point. Recommended electronics are a raspberry Pi 4 with a wide angle PI camera. A more in-depth overview of the electronics assembly is forthcoming.

I hope everyone enjoys! If there are any other features you'd like to see included in future versions, leave a comment below.



Change Log:

Version 1.00 - September 2, 2019
- Legs are now designated as Right or Left
- Body/Shoulders have been adjusted to facilitate left and right symmetry in the legs
- Captive nuts are used where possible
- Blank Nose and Black rear parts are included
- No need to reflect parts after download
- Chassis plate for RPi included
- Chassis plate for Jetson Nano included
- No holes cut in the covers

I know there are quite a few people interested in the project who don't have access to a 3d printer and so wanted to float out that I'm happy to print off the pieces and mail them out if people are interested. If people wanted I could even include some of the electronics like the PCA9685 or mechanical parts like the bearings which are sometimes difficult to source if you haven't done it before.

Either send me a PM or reply to this if you're interested.

So my batteries put out quite a bit more current than my fixed power supply, which is both a good and bad thing. Good in that the servos perform significantly better when they have enough current, and bad because the PCA9685 roasted with that much current. My home office now smells of magic smoke. Any ideas on how to supply 12 power hungry servos? This was only with the regular MG996R from hobbyking, beefy servos I imagine would take even more power.

  Need Idea's
Posted by: adaypa - 08-23-2019, 08:15 PM - Forum: Electronics - Replies (3)

Hello I'm building the robot with the 6336hv and it's going pretty well. Since I'll use the Intel Realsense depth camera I won't need the frontal distance sensor so I'm thinking what should I use instead to cover this space. I was looking for a tft for display some info or even a fake eyes. What do you guys think? Any ideas? Thanks ! Smile

  Introduction, Starting my SpotMicro
Posted by: MattthiasM - 08-18-2019, 12:15 PM - Forum: Forum Member Builds - Replies (3)


My name is Matthias. I currently live in Germany. I used to write software for special effects in the film industry, but always had a huge interest in robots and 3d printing.

I found SpotMicro through Thingiverse and downloaded the original probably a few days after they appeared there. It took a while, but I finally managed to print all files and I started assembly yesterday, hoping I will have a walking Spot pretty soon.

I am currently using an Arduino Due for its many pins and nice speed, but I may move to the Teensy 4.0, or even the RasPi at some point. To get force feedback from the legs, I am probably going to make a servo controller for all 12 servos that measures the servos power demand, but that is a further down on the todo list ;-)

Hi all,

I'm looking to also make my own SpotMicro and am currently putting together a BoM.

The cost difference between the MG996R and the CLS6336HV is large (~£5 Vs £25 each). I'm happy to commit to the more powerful CLS's if it's already known the MG996R's just aren't powerful enough, but I was wondering if anyone has found anything in the middle ground pricing between these that could work?

Hi, this is the first model of SpotMicro, that I think I'll build new ones in the future, with better prints
