Hexapod MapleSim Model - Hexapod S-Function - MapleSim Model Gallery


This model uses multibody components to simulate the walking motion of a hexapod robot. Leg actuation is provided with trapezoidal signals. Normal forces, friction, and deflections are calculated for each "foot" of the hexapod.

A 3-D visualization demonstrates the prescribed walking motion.
