A custom droid requires a custom frame. The number of actuators I have planned for this droid requires a heavy duty frame. While I took some inspiration from existing frames, the materials on hand and the design I am working towards have led to a frame unlike any before it.
The frame is primarily built from 1/2" thick 6061 that was on hand at the shop. Due to the post machining that would be required it was decided to machine the parts from the get-go rather than water jet them.
This section will end up with more info as more features are added to the droid, showing the integration of the systems.
