Materials for robot

  1. Aug 4, 2010 #1
    I am currently designing a small humanoid. What are the possible materials for the body? I would like the robot to be light and economical.

    clearly you should first investigate alluminum because obviously its cheap and lightweight and strong enough for robots that are not designed to withstand destructive forces.

    Casting resin if you want humanoid rondure. Acrylic sheet otherwise.
