[Idea] Link Two V2 Pneumatic Actuators End to End.

Recommended Posts

So, @Fieldtest requested a device to link two of the large V2 pneumatic actuators together, end to end. this is what I came up with, and it is so potentially helpful that I thought it would be worth sharing in its own topic.

It's pretty easy to make, but it was a real pain to figure out, because Lego, in their infinite wisdom, made some of the dimensions not a whole number of studs, which is really odd for them. Thus, this build needed some very illegal connections in order to work and be stiff. I've also got some more construction pics:

There you go, I hope you all find this to be useful.

I just tested it, and while it technically works, it is rather flexible. My version does not flex at all. Nice try, though. That's really what makes digital building hard. You just can not tell how a mechanism flexes.
