Poppy with DYNAMIXEL AX-18A instead of MX-28

Hi,
I’m trying to make a Poppy Humanoid with DYNAMIXEL AX-18A instead of MX-28 and I would like to ask if somebody did it already? I tried to just scale down the 3D models so that they could fit the smaller servo motors in, but this didn’t work quite right…

So any experience or advice??

Hello,

Checkout the Poppyrate project, which is a smaller version.
Changing the servomotors is not easy because it needs to redesign all 3D-printed parts.Also check ideas in this article.

Thanks so much for your response! I worked on it since I wrote this topic on the forum and I suppose that I am getting pretty close to having redesigned parts with AX-18A servos, but it will take some more time to have a properly finished version. Right now I am printing the parts and testing them. I will post there a link to my GitHub repository as soon as I will have some parts printed and tested.
