Acrylic panels for the Quadruped robot arrived!

The nice people at Pololu have produced the laser cut acrylic panels which make up most of the body components of the Quadruped4 robot, and they arrived here in Melbourne yesterday.

I put together the base plate and side walls, and mounted on the robotics controller board, so I could get an idea of how it will all come together.

These two images show reality versus cad! There's a bit of catch up to do... But the slots in all the panels aligned well, and the PCB fitted in place correctly, as did the WiFi antenna tail.

I have a bit of precision acrylic bending to do to create the aesthetic bends in the top cover, and especially the head with its "Johnny 5" eyebrows.

I also have to purchase the rest of the AX-12 servos (I only have two at this point), and cnc cut the shoulder brackets which are custom designed offset brackets for the Ax-12's.
