I have been working on a new way of doing servo sequencing which will make it so much easier for those building biped to get them up and walking. This software allows for the manual adding of degrees and saving them to a small DB as well as doing key framing and developing a walking gait based on IK. On the manual side you move a slide and then press the add button which then stores the value into a table. On the Keyframe side you move the slider to the desired starting point and press the associated start button for that slider. Next step is to move the slider to the end position and press the end button. Now to generate the frames between the start and end just press the Process Keyframes button and it will generate the frames between the start and end and then add them all to the table. On the IK chain piece you select the limb you want to position via IK. For example if you select the legs, as you move that slider above 90 the legs will then go through half the walk cycle while moving the slider below 90 the other half cycle will apply. The same feature works with the feet as it will move both feet in an IK chain to produce a dance cycle. The arms function the same way. You can blend the arms and the legs to produce a natural looking walk cycle.

mtriplett: Thanks jinx. Its probably the only bot you will see out of me. I am not as prolific as jeffro. I hope to hear more about your next build.

jinx: am thinking of expanding my Q rover some more in the new year,,,, i dream of invading the moon with fleets of affordable rovers if space x can litter space with a car then they could surely litter the moon with hangbag size rovers and let the kids
