About this creation
B6/UTL - General Utility Mecha unit.

This single man utility mecha is designed for repairs and maintenance of stations and star ships. Small and agile, it is at home clambering over scaffolding or the hull of a ship. Featuring 8 limbs, each with a functioning arm/claw, capable of basic repairs and adjustments to systems as well as handling tools and equipment.

Though unusual, the B6 series can also handle firearms.

Creator notes: I've added this to my deviant account as well

This didn't start out life as a spider design, but the rather gangly look of the forelimbs and not really having any bright ideas what I wanted to do about legs, I just kept adding the same limbs until it looked stable. I've called it a spider as it does have 8 limbs (you can see two small ones directly beneath the front section), but really it's not the best description.

one thing that did turn out different to what I'd planned was how the pilot got into the mech. Originally the front section was supposed to fold down, but the combination of the extra arms and too much detail at the front means that hinge is restricted, fortunately the rear hinge has no obstruction, so it's a back loader.

I think this may wind up being the prototype of a new series of lighter frames, we'll see.

Hey, I Had Some Classes Cancel, So I'm Reviewing As I Do My Laundry, So I Can Do This Earlier Than My Previous Message In The Comment Section. Anywho, I Must Say, You Have Come Up With Quite The Devious Design. Devious In The Sense That I Know It Is Simple, Yet The Product Looks Very Complicated. The Style Also Is Very Nice, Very Simple Yet Pleasing To The Eye, Works Well With The Utility Aspect. Another Aspect That Is Not Seen At First, Is The Harness, Very Simple Yet Effective Design You Came Up With. So, Overall, A Simple, Yet Effective Design For A Practical Mech, Nice Work.

I Feel That It Is Indeed A Thing Worth Appreciation. Oh, By The Way, I Commented On A Creation Of Yours, The "Louse", With A Link To Download A File I Created That Has The Entire 4.0.2 Color Palette, Figured You Would Like That.

Quoting yama masa Very nice! Looks very complicated to me... anyway, great job!
it isn't really that complicated, it's made up mostly of hinges, so it can unfold to allow the pilot to get in and out, and the limbs are just the same limb repeated six times. thanks for the comment.

Quoting Rabid Goldfish What a creepy, spindly looking machine... I love it! And the harness for the operator looks very nifty. ^Blub^
the idea is that it can operate just as well at any angle just by holding on by any of its six main limbs, and use the 2 smaller ones, plus any limbs not being used to stand or hold to work tools. The harness was a happy accident, but I fully intend to use it again. creepy? yeah I guess. I must be in Halloween mood already.
