Recently saw a video of Boston Dynamics it's Atlas robot doing all kind of awesome stuff and learned that the robots were fully hydraulic. I was wondering if it would be possible to build a fully 3D-printable hydraulic system that's watertight and can be used for robotics. This double helical gear pump is the first component of the fully 3D-printable hydraulic system.
Note: The pump is watertight when using the 3D-printed lid with seal and seal tensioner. at some point in the video you can see me using a laser cut plexi lid, this one is only used for demo reasons, doesn't have a seal and so obviously leaks.
The fusion 360 source file option includes these formats:
-.zip (containing .ipt and .iam files)
The STL-files option includes these files:
Part list, schematics, code and more info about this project can be found here.
Note: This is not a physical product. When you're purchasing the STL or Fusion 360 source files you will be able to download these files. A physical product will not be send to your address.
