First run of Macropede leg set
Yesterday I made some progress with the Macropede:

First running pair of legs design for the RepRap printer

Some hours later 8 legs already:

This will become definitely the Macropede version (bigger than Micropede) because the leg distance is 15 mm
- with 16 legs this is 225 mm in total.

The original Gakken Centipede has 300 mm max axis distance
while Sho's Micropede copy of the Gakken Centipede has 150 mm for this.

Finaly my Macropede leg unit is as long as the Repawlker RA04 in total including the bumpers - this is quite acceptable for me...

And the ready to use 1/4 unit of 8 legs:
