I've just posted a preliminary version of what I'm calling a box beam
leg design. It combines the leg and ankle into one unified assembly.
The core of the design is a pair of boxes formed from styrene, with an
additional layer of styrene on each outside face. I'm hoping for a very
rigid leg structure but one that's still light weight and easy to assemble.
I'm trying to incorporate features in the design phase that
take advantage of the CNC cutting process to make the finished model
better. Things like tab & slot construction and eggcrate assembly.

At this point all I've posted is a 3d .pdf file on my website.
If you have a chance, take a look as I'd like comments that might
improve the design.
