Just finished Uploading the Bicep Covers – https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2531882
So far so good,, I’m about 90% done with the Gearbox’s for the Bicep and Shoulder they have been Complete Re-built in SketchUp ( still to Mr Gael Design but Bearing have been added ) so Mod Work will be easy for people you want to R&D with different drive sys…[Read more]

Can someone suggest an alternative to the 3mm filament for the pins on the hand? My filament is 1.75mm and hate to buy a roll of 3 mm just for this. Thanks!
Here’s an alternative approach:
Hi Timothy, if you are in the UK I can post you some? regards, Lorn
…or, if you want to stick with the original design then you could try this:
I had the same ‘problem’.
Solution, print some 3mm rods and use those. A 100mm rod will do a hand I think. Insert into the joint and trim. Or print them individually.
Forgot I had these made up https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2531839
Made these a while ago and just uploaded them,,,, I thought it be handy to have a set of printable Finger Pins,,,
I assume any builder with 3mm filament will be glad to send you a stretch that is long enough for the fingers. post your snake mail address – postage might be the cost factor!
I used 3mm line trimmer line from the hardware. its cheap and works well
That’s a great idea,,,,, I found knitting Needles in the $2 Shop,,,which are 2.8mm and $2.50 a set,,,, I didn’t even think of pulling a bit of cord off my whipper snipper,,,, lol
Oh Yeah that’s right,,, I kept with the Knitting Needles because of the Type of Plastic—It’s Extremely hard you can use on Micro Lathe or Drill Press for Shaping ( not just for finger pins) I’m 99% sure it’s Acetate plastic,,,,

good work . How the leg is fixing it to inmoov
The Knee is moving video
Steve Cole posted an update 4 months, 1 week ago
Been working on the head. I’ve heavily modified it fixing the lower jaw.
I have then split it into a front shell and a back shell. The two fix together with magnets. The back is fixed to the rear bracket . The eyes are fixed into the front. I’m going to put lights in the slot for the mouth which will light up when he speaks ( no idea how that will…[Read more]
Looks great! Nice job
That looks great
I hope if the motor arrives that it is strong enough to move the knee
Wow .. that’s going to one powerful motor
A sunny day, also for leg’s

I finally gave myself time to program a little, and to be able to demonstrate my knees. After a robot boat competition and a lot of work.
Hey Erick! Looking good Have you designed these legs for Inmoov to stand/walk/balance or sit?
Stefan Ekstam posted an update 5 months ago
I finally decided that the time had come to finish my InMoov. After some grinding, the hardware is now complete to 98 %.
After trying some of the most recent versions of MyRobotLab (and failing miserably), I tried the older “Kraken” version (1.0.1723) and things worked a lot better. So far I have bricked two LiPo batteries calibrating all…[Read more]
how can you complete the legs with only 2% left???
be patient with MRL – switching to an older version was a good move. Wait for Manticore – I hope we will see that within the next 2 month’s
What is Manticore, juerg? *asks curiosly*
Manticore is the name of the next stable MyRobotLab release
Any info on how it is progressing and possible releasedate?
You can see project issues and progress here (you might need a free github account to access it)

I didn’t like the Kinect sensor, it is a faff to get it working, and it needs 12v and splicing, so I decided to fit the ASUS Pro sensor, runs on USB @ 5v, much easier to integrate.
… and can you show us a depht view with the device?

Prototype Leg with working knee
Very cool Richard. Looks like you are having some design and print success.
Wow, it looks great. What motors do they use? And what torque do they have to move their legs? I have been designing mine for 4 months and hopefully soon move them. regards
Got it to work with Nema 17 Stepper Motor 59Ncm(84oz.in) 2A 17HS19-2004S, also using from Sparkyman1 a Planetary Gear Box which give me about 50:1 reduction.

I want to try and fit a Raspberry Pi inside the skull if I can, and as I had a ‘spare’ Pi Camera laying around I modified another part to make a Pi Camera version of EyeBallSupport_X_LeftV1. Posted to Thingiverse.
I’m not sure if you have seen this: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:994720
I made several modifications to the interior of the head to make it possible to fit the PI in the head. Perhaps it can give you some ideas. After making it I changed the back of the neck to use this design. http://www.thingiverse.com/make:251020 made by Andreas.
Hi Mats, thanks for the links. I had seen the first one, but not the Andreas version. My build so far (which is only the skull really) uses the standard huge servo for the neck, so I’ll have to see how much space I can find. I’m using the ‘new eye mechanism’ on Gael’s Build Yours log, as well as the articulated neck based on Bob Houston design.…[Read more]

be sure to have something like this in place for the big servos
you can always run into situations where the movement does not stop (broken or dislocated pot, wires, unreachable positions) and when running the whole robot it is very difficult to identify the servo having the problem quickly enough to…[Read more]
Yep,,, I’ll be putting them fuse in place- when I was R&D on 3d printers- id get a “run away” movement command every so often,,, and you never get to them in time before it hits the end of the -X /Y axis of the printer,,,, quickly installed all 6 limitswitch to stop damaging the belts,,,, thx for posting the thread,,

@bretzel59 i am making bisep so HS-805BB This servo is so costly can i use any cheap servo alternate of this if yes then please provide me the link of that
Nope,,,, HS-805BB are the cheapest out there for their size,,, prices are all over the place with servos-,, have a look at quite a few web-shops before buying- you should be paying around $35usd for them- but check out the “postage cost” before buying ,,,
I use the HK15338. They are the same size and cost $15 USD. Available in the US too.
That”s a good price,,, they work alright,,?
Everything is a tradeoff. They are basically clones and can be modified in the same way as the 805’s.
A little less torque, a little less speed but definitely usable. I have been happy with them.
Try these ones, they are the same as the HS-805’s but only $27 USD.
Cool,,, I’ll get a couple of them for testing,,, at that price i can fry/destroy them without worrying about it,,,, going to use these in the end (see link) ,, providing i don’t find a problem with them- there a Australian clone of the Savox ,,,, but beefed up,,, not down,,,, bit pricey ,,, but the torque is good, and got the 7.2v option too…[Read more]
for the large servos I strongly recommend using heat-up fuses so it stops the current before burning up the servo. I anyway had expected that these servos would come with overload protection but the manufacturers seem to like them burning out …
juerg posted an update 1 year, 1 month ago
I have started to replace broken HS805BB with bluebird BMS L530MG (hobbyking). I have one for my bicep and another one for the neck. The bicep initially worked fine until the horn adapter started to slip (the lower arm is a heavy bugger). I recommend therefore metal servo horns with the bluebird servo. You need to order them separately.…[Read more]

InMoov Head with less holes
Finished design of a face/skull version with lesser number of parts. You need a print bed size of 20 * 15.5 * 10 to print them
Hey, this was awesome. I printed it up.
Thanks for your feedback, glad you can use it! You need to spread the face a bit when mounting it over the jaw mechanism but it wasn’t difficult.
I printed your inmoov face, its very nice, I will try the jaw mechanism later and will show you the job finished

mods for turnigy 1270HV 40kg
Let us know how this goes.
I can’t seem to find if the turnigy 1270HV is analog or digital, I would need to search a little more and surely find the specs someplace.
But I’m guessing this is going to suck up much more Amps from your supply.
Better get a good 30 Amps+ supply for your built.
nice work what is this servo motor?
Thank you amby! This is turnigy 1270HV 40kg servo. With some mods it can fit perfect.
What are the mods you had to do to fit in the turnigy 1270HV 40kg?
Some builders have a hard time to gather the Hitec 805bb, if the mods are minor, I could add this servo in the alternative servo list.
This looks great and seems to run really well. I’ve become concerned about the application of servos this way. Have any had the drive shaft get pulled out of the servo in these linear actuator applications? What about the place where the little screw holds the servo horn onto the splined shaft, any failed there?
@Reece, mine has been running for nearly three years now and the servos are still doing fine.
The only thing that happens sometimes, the small screw that holds the horn wheel to the servo shaft gets loose, I bet using some blue Loctite component would solve the problem, but I never bought some to test.
That’s great, It was something that started bothering me the more I thought about it. I expect that for the service duty this is being put to that these are not a concern. I expect I’ve been among big machinery too long and with the self teaching over the years I’ve probably over analyzed this.
Mr. Gael sorry for late answer but first my school and then my inmoov, as my daddy said. The mods need to change some pieces. My dad make new stls and i print them. I will post photos of them.
Hello Agelos and welcome!
Thanks for your pictures and your great built.

Finally – took me a long time – the video, the description and the parts of the self levelling hand for InMoov
hello juerg interestinf wrist
thank you for show us
Very good demonstration and video!!
This looks very promising for handling beverages and other delicate tasks.
I will Google+ your video and add the parts to the derivative collection because it’s very interesting progress.
I just wanted to thank you all for the replies I received for my modified hand from different sources. I hope to see soon a copy of my hand on other InMoov’s!
Bob Houston posted a new activity comment 1 year, 9 months ago
Yes, I hacked a flexihand and put the servos for the fingers in the palm of the hand and added a servo for the additional wrist movement. I have also just finished adding flexible joints to the original InMoov hand and it works pretty good and can hold objects fairly well. I posted a couple of videos on Youtube about the flexihand.

A demo of the stomach rotation
Very cool movements .
As you have done to make the system of wrist motion up and down ?
Finaly you can post videos again!
I see you replaced one hand with the Flexi hand?
Nice video, Bob!
I see the wrist also has a movement linkage. You might want to share your work with Juerg, as he is also working on something similar.
RIght, you take a new route with servos inside the hand – very nice!
My bending wrist uses another servo in the forearm and a few modifications on the existing wrist and hand parts – and it integrates a position sensor to allow the hand to stay horizontal. I am waiting for some cabling stuff as I want to have the forearm pluggable to the elbow.…[Read more]
Looks great! The flexihand seems better controlled – is that due to a design improvement in the parts or just better tuning during installation?
PS I think we should chip in to buy you some switchplate covers so you can program your bot to install them
