 2DOF & 3DOF Leg Designs & Assembly Instructions
Standard Tibia.
This leg tibia (knee to foot) is a redesign of the original tibia for our 3DOF legs. It's an affordable alternative to the SES tibia. Useful for 3DOF legs.

2DOF leg, Simple Single Fulcrum.
This leg design is quite elegant in its simplicity. It's design was first seen on the MIT Genghis hexapod.
Assembly Guide    
2DOF leg, Direct-Drive Parallelogram. (Image only.)
This leg design keeps the Tibia (knee to foot) at a constant angle. The angle can be adjusted by varying the length of a "dog bone" in the construction. Different lengths of tubing can be used.
     
2DOF leg, Direct-Drive Parallelogram.
This leg design keeps the Tibia (knee to foot) at a constant angle. The angle can be adjusted by varying the length of a "dog bone" in the construction. It can be load balanced.
Assembly Guide    
2DOF leg, Direct-Drive Parallelogram Pseudo 3rd DOF.
This unique leg design keeps the foot moving in a straight line even though the leg arrangement is moving through an arc. It can be load balanced.
Assembly Guide    
2DOF leg, Indirect Drive Parallel (Mechanical advantage).
This leg design can hold a great amount of weight, but the tripod has to start and stop in the down position in the gait to be effective. It doesn't allow a variable ride height.
Assembly Guide    
3DOF leg, Direct-Drive.
This is a very popular leg design. We have the Inverse Kinematics based BASIC Atom / SSC-32 code for this leg.
