Hello everyone!

It has been a while since I last had the time and motivation to make a substantial improvement to this project. This time I have taken it up with enthusiasm and I think it has been worth the effort.

I'm proud to introduce you the new Thor's website. I did my best to gather all existing project documentation in one place. I have also taken the opportunity to add new documentation and improve the existing one in order to make the project accessible to more people.

And let's be honest, although it has been useful, Thor's Google Group mailing list is not pleasant to use. It's also a service that Google could eliminate from one day to the next, losing all the information there. That's why I've taken the trouble to migrate all the messages to a forum hosted on the new site, much more intuitive to use in my opinion.

I have migrated the users, but not the passwords, so if you had posted a message in this group you will have your user created in the new forum. To set your password you will have to follow this link.

From now on, the google group will be obsolete and only the new forum will be used, in order to centralise all information in one place.

And this is not the only change I am proud to announce. I have also released a new Thor design. Designed in FreeCAD 0.19 and based on an old redesign I started a few years ago, Thor v2.1 is now available for download.

Besides the aesthetic changes it is worth mentioning the new features:

  • Integrated electronics box.
  • Ventilation grills in every articulation.
  • Integrated fan holders.
  • New gripper design.
  • Several design fixes.

And that's all, I hope you like this new news and see you on the new website!

Best Regards,
Ángel LM
