The press View all button (or Ctrl+Shift+V) to view the entire robot and use the mouse to navigate.

Project structure

The project is divided into several folders:

  • robot folder, which contains parts specific to Jenny 5 robot. This folder contains the main file of the project: jenny5.scad
  • basic_scad folder, which contains general parts (like motors, bearings, screws, nuts, housings, etc) which are required to build the robot or something else.

The robot folder contains 5 subfolders:

  • arm. The main file is arm.scad.
  • base_platform. The main file is base_platform.scad
  • body. The main file is body.scad. Please note that arms are connected to body only in the main file of the project ( jenny5.scad ).
  • head. The main file is head.scad.
  • leg. The main file is leg.scad.

Parameters

The current position of the leg and arms is stored as numerical values (angles).

These parameters are stored in the following files:

One can modify these parameters in order to simulate a new position for leg or arms.

One can change the color of the plastic parts from file basic_scad/material_colors.scad. Check OpenSCAD manual for a list of possible colors.
