Build and test of the new design

Today I finished the new design for the body. I began to use iDraw for this project, and until now it has been a very positive aquaintance. I used to be a competent Illustrator user, but jumped of the Adobe wagon some years ago. iDraw fells very familiar and stay out off my way.

You can download the pattern here: FelixBodyPattern.svg

To test the dimensions and the range of movements, I cut the pieces from 4mm plywood using the pattern as a template, then put it all together using bolts and washers.The servos are fastened with 3mm. bolts and the knee with 2mm. Below you can se af video of the assembly process.
