the breaded part is only the outer shell. The inner core is made of tiny bilaminated (don’t know the english word, [i]the process of fitting two different metals with a very strong heat strech difference, so that if you make an electrical current go through it, the metal piece will bend on itself", and yes, that truelly exists and was once developed as a way to animate tiny robot’s part) breaded with a complicated power delivery system that enables the hose to bend on itself in any direction in any of the joints.
That was the scientific-on-the-spot answer.
Now for the dumbass answer:
hey dude, it’s magic…
Other than that, it looks very mechanically sound. I know you said very early WIP, but make sure you add some clevis’s for the connections of the cylinder to the leg.
yes, of course. it will also need a pneumatic hose of some sort. Thanks for reminding me anyway.
PS: yes, I know about the lack of hard edges. that will also be taken care of later.
