A a six-legged walking robot which is 3D-printed, low-cost and small.


The hexapod robots has many advantages over quadruped ones: static gait (three to five legs are in contact with the ground at any moment), increased walking pace and more stability. Next to that, hexapod robots can still walk with interesting performances if a damage occurs to one leg

Legs are printed with PLA filament (polylactic acid, a biodegradable thermoplastic aliphatic polyester derived from renewable resources), therefor they require less effort to be moved during the transfert phase of walking movement. Hexabot reaches an optimum between maximum strength (the maximum stress the specimen can take before breaking) and overall weight. Another consequence of a reduced weight is that joints can be operated by less energy-demanding servos.

From its Tuscan headquarters, footwear manufacturer Tre Zeta Group creates soles for classic shoes and sneakers using 3D printing centering jigs for its carding process. The team chose the BCN3D Epsilon W50 for its advantageous IDEX technology and material Tough PLA for its top-tier mechanical properties. Our partner CREA3D did an exploration with a camera in tow to see the benefits for themselves!
