.... make a super cool extremely articulated mech...
About this creation
My new super articulated mech frame - a light duty ball jointed one this time. Just slightly shorter than my previous ratchet joint ones. Maybe we will do a contest with this in the summer. Please feel free to use it as long as you credit the design back to me. Look forward to some cool upcoming mechs using this frame.

Happy Building - Enjoy!

this is made with the old joints - this one is made with the new smaller ball joints http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/387130 cheers!
Quoting Marc dZ Very interesting!! Those little new joints allow very dynamic movements. Thank you for sharing.

yeah looks cool!
Quoting Mithryl Altaire Hey Chris--nice frame--I took it for a spin: https://www.flickr.com/photos/65213210@N07/14047105596/ hope you don't mind. Have you noticed any issues with the right arm of the frame? I've checked and rechecked my build for parts collisions or missing connections and for some reason only the right arm seems to have problems moving at all. Any thoughts? Also, feel free to use the picture if you want to promote the frame.

good if you use new parts - not so good if they are old and loose!
Quoting matt one Beautiful frame! Did you used voodoo balls and cross axles for elbows? I don't have many bricks and I would like to know: how strong the connection is between these elements with real bricks?

This frame is very human in the way that it can be posed. I like how there's already space for a driver in the design too. Thanks for making the LDD file available. It was very interesting to look at. I don't do this sort of building and some of the techniques for "making" bricks from Technic bricks, axles and balls were new and interesting to me.

time to get some new axles and voodoo balls then!
Quoting Disco Chicken cool, but using those ball joint pieces that aren't molded to a 2x4 brick (just a ball basically)don't work for me, because for some reason my ones are super loose and are not stable enough for mechs. Other than that, great job!

these are the older bigger ball joints - mixels are smaller
Quoting cyberfrank 2010 it s great, is it possible that the mixels have different ball joints? I see some here that did nt came with mine... your frame holds lots of promise.
