How do you make cranks for 12 legged walkers like Strandbeest with LEGO?
Twelve legged walkers require each leg pair to be 120 degrees out of phase with its adjacent leg pairs. The only LEGO part I found with an 120 degree angle was the Technic Rotor 3 Blade Liftarm (part #44374), which required additional parts to make into cranks, added width to the walker, and it was also kinda weak.
Can you come up with a better solution?
Welcome to DIYWalkers! My name is Ben Vagle, I'm 17 years old and I've been building mechanical walkers for the past 4 years, at both LEGO-scale, and SUV-scale. I started this blog to share what I've learned, and to collaborate with you. Let's see if we can take walkers to the next level!
