Thanks for your reply,
Servo buzzing is a noise that is in range of voice intonations from what some sound engineer explained. The result can be desastrous on voice recognition system, because the system actually interprets it as somobody speaking.
Pretty odd isn’t it !
Hey that is great!
When you posted the picture of yourself on the community, I was not sure if you were real or a spammer..
No! Im a real person, Im Doctor, Aesthetic Doctor, but Im very interested in build my InMoov, with my partner, he is Mecatronic Enginering.
Now Im go slowly with the printing, because my 3D printer don´t work well.
Sorry for my worst english
Greats frome México!
A very late comment to your great work using ROS in conjonction with InMoov.
I had shared your great video on my Google+ page right after you posted it.
Thanks for your video, I really enjoyed looking at InMoov moving so gracefully.
This is certainly getting along well !!
Following your progress from close by, Marten!
Cool design Perry,
this is nice to give room for the tendons to run straight out from the wrist to the Servobed.
Thanks Gael, I a trying to adopt some of your design practices to make parts robust and cleanly exported. I have stopped putting a radius on everything (just because they are easy and look cool). I am starting to see the beauty of a simple to work with STL that can be modified by others. A little more function over form. The simple little parts…[Read more]
Just for info, there is some parts already available in the InMoov derivative collection, but I’m sure you must have seen them already.
I wanted to buy an Amazon Echo to test the capabilities of their microphone. I wonder if it still listens correctly when all the servos are buzzing.
Good question. We’re almost done with torso. Once we get that finished up – I’ll test it out. I use Echo for my smart light bulbs and it works great even with a lot of background noise.
Great to hear that Jan. I do the shipping mainly on Mondays, you happened to have ordered just before I did the packages.
InMoov is a long term project, so take your time and patience along.
Great, I’m glad you received the complete hand and forarm in time for your brother!
Don’t hesitate to post a review about the product on the shop.
It’s strange but almost nobody does, although it would guide others during their choice.
Have a good time building!
Great Perry, I see that there is many inventors around!
Remember a very important thing many people tend to forget when slicing the parts.
When lowering down the resolution and keeping a 3 shell perimeter you also loose strength.
Say if you print at resolution 0,5mm with a 3mm perimeter with an infill of 30%, it is much stronger than if you print at resolution 0,2mm with a 3mm and an infill of…[Read more]
That for sure is a safe pot!!
But you didn’t use my latest pot holders, that means your parts can no longer fit PivTit and RotTit of the latest version…
I guess, it’s because you already had PivTit and RotTit printed from the previous version. I like your little potentiometer board option, it’s handy for to simply disconnect.
I added two versions of the pot holder to Thingiverse. They fit the latest version of the shoulder. One version is without the cable guide and the other with the cable guide.
Great Mats !
Thanks for posting the picture. I have added it to the chest and torso 3D sketch view.
I see you do not have my ThroatLowerV1.stl, but a variation, which might confuse some builders though.
Good eye,,, I forget about that, here’s the correct piece in place,, anything you see that out of place just let me know,,
Thanks for the image. I’m adding it into the tutorial 3Dsketch views. It will certainly help other builders.
Sketchup works pretty well with STL as long as the files do not have too many vertices. Many CAD softwares like to abuse with curves on all the edges and corners, which creates super heavy STL. Sketchup may then start to be very laggy. My…[Read more]
Great improvement for long term usage! Thanks for posting, I will add it to the InMoov derivatives collection if you share it on Thingiverse! Remember to use the same licence, CC-by-NC.
Thanks for sharing.
You look like two good friends shaking hands!
Or look in the Galery tab for the InMoov LIBRARY of STL:
Great support for a smaller screen, it’s added to the InMoov derivative collection.
And great progress on your built!
The eyes are definitely too low, either you have the EyeToNoze, set too low, or you have inverted some pieces, like the Eyesupport from left to right and vice versa. Somebody and the forum had a similar issue.

Great Jaideep, I am glad it’s now back on it’s stand! Time to get further with programming.

Thanks Rodolfo and Gaël !
I hope you get your “hands on the Right hand !”
Thanks for sharing !
Gael Langevin posted a new activity comment 5 months, 2 weeks ago
Thanks for the explaination Perry.
When exporting from Blender to STL format I use a plugin within Blender to check if parts are clean without inverted facets. This plugin did not exist when I started InMoov project, therefore some of my first parts could not come out clean
One of the reasons I do not create parts with too many round edges,…[Read more]
I’ve just started the project, so sorry if my question has been answered previously.
I though that the upper back was for mounting the tablet. does this mean the the robot can operate without the tablet?
Hi Kevon. You are correct that the position in the back is for the tablet. Some people use other tables or raspberry PI’s or other controllers to run the bot.
That voice, who’s voice is that? I can’t recognize the actor and in which comedy it is?
I recognized the discourse of Hynkel of the film “The dictator” realized and interpreted by Charlie Chaplin. I have to googelize to find the French voice of Roger Carel.
Sorry for the translation in English, that I speak very badly.
Thanks Frederic for the info!
sorry for not having answered before … come yesterday from holidays.
This a picture of mine though…
Post pictures of your InMoov, it will be more interesting.
Very nice Marten!
It’s very interesting to see how you managed the wrist servo, I guess we could add a second servo for wrist abduction. That would be a great extra feature. (Hand Mini breakout Nervo Boards and Nervo boards would need to be transformed and all scripts and gestures as well though…)
Will you test it running continuously full 10…[Read more]
I’m happy with this update, it helps a lot to run all the fishing lines more freely !
If the small servo’s are still a life after a stress test…
There is more space left for other functions.
For the stress test I need to make a nice script or better just use a simple Ardiuno random sketch.
So I don’t need a laptop to be on all the…[Read more]
BTW, for the Thump I will make a other pulley.
The one which I’m using now are a bit to big
All other fingers are fine enough.
Great idea Marten ! thank for sharing
Thanks Anthony !
I hope to upload all the STL’s tomorrow.
Tomorrow I will receive my ordered DogBone shaft which is 108mm instead of 89mm
So, the files are on Thingiverse: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1824042
I would go for a VPN control. It will work a bit like TeamViewer.

Hello Jose and welcome. Thanks for these information.
Do you have a picture of the head done with smatfill high resolution ABS with code decimals and centesimals? I would like to see the quality it gives once assembled.
Hello, to say to you that I am the president of an association of drones, robotics and engineering, and we work also with 3d printers having come to a great point of perfection. We work with prusas i3, flashforge creator, ultimaker, makerbot replicator, etc. It is the most important in all our printers to calibrate at least the filament in the…[Read more]
Lots of servos and materials ready, it smells like a fresh InMoov is on the go.
Great work and very nice adaptation. Which software do you use for to do that?
It doesn’t look like Blender. It’s interesting to know because other builders might be interested to see how you re-worked your parts with only the STL at start.
Working with STL files can be a real hassle as they are among the hardest to modify after the fact. As you can see in the pics below they import with thousands of facets so there are not really planar surfaces to work with.
I use Solidworks to import your individual stl files. It is important to import as a solid body instead of a…[Read more]
Thanks Marten for sharing! I have added your Thingiverse pulleys to the InMoov collection.
Thanks Gaël, to put them to the InMoov collection.
Awesome! Is he connected with software yet?
Great Marten! I want to see when the pulley is set in the servo bed how the servos are acting. As I said in our email exchange, I have burned so many MG996 and MG995, that I do not trust those servos anymore. I never, yet burned a HK15298.
Initially when I created the pulley and the servo bed it was for to solve a restriction rotation of 90…[Read more]
Tomorrow and the next two day’s I have some spare time during the day
First I need to finish my Wrist update, this will help a lot to run more freely !
Yesterday evening/night I’ve printed the first parts and one needs a small modification to fit better.
When this fits well, I can draw the servo part…

Two InMoov in Athenes for the Makerfaire!!
Leo on wheels also looks very clean.
Thank you Gael! It was a great weekend and we enjoy it!
Now i make a try with my new raspberry and Mrl but i want to find a way to remotely control the raspberry from a android tablet.
Do you know anything about it?
I like the picture of InMoov in the speed car. So now you have two InMoov build up, that is great work.

Hello Michael! A finger in the Wanhao! That’s for sure it’s at least a month of preparation.
What will you do next month?
Just kidding, hey!
Thanks for sharing your enthousiasm.
Great video Akash, I can see that you did great progress learning how to use MyRobotLab! Isn’t it great to be able to voice control the finger? Of course it means you can voice control all kinds of devices with MRL through the Arduino. Check the various services, like camera, tracking, I ‘m sure you will find all kinds of projects to do!
I want to test these pulleys for sure! I’m guessing it will be also okay for our servos HK 15298 which have a restriction from 0 to 90 degrees.
For a 0 to 90 degree turn, I need to make them a bit bigger !
These are now designed for 0 to 180 degrees.
(please check your dropbox ! )
After some tests, I will upload them to Thingiverse.
Wouuii video great Martens.Did you use your carbon filament?
Hahaha, yes I’m still using the same Carbon Finger.
I didn’t print more Carbon Fingers yet…
Hey that looks like a good starting point.
Right hand, check
Cool great progress!! Too bad you couldn’t get more rolls at once!

The Nervo board can handle the sensors. In my tutorial I explain how to set an extra ribbon dedicated to the sensors. Inded the service will need to be adapted which I have been waiting for ever since I have added the sensors in the fingers.
Time to take that in a serious matter!
Thanks for the extra pictures, it gives a good idea about the process!
What is nice with this setup, is that it avoids having cables running within the fingers. (Which is not easy to work with);
The servo bed would need a bit of modfication, but all together, it’s not so much work and it could even be applied to forarms that have already been…[Read more]
right, big thing, no need to take too much apart.
My question however is unanswered – I assume the finger tester code reads back the status of the FSR and repositions the finger? This will need 5 more cables from the forearm to the arduino and a modified finger service to take this into account? Or am I (once more) wrong again? Tell me I am…[Read more]
Right, your finger sensor has been in place for a long time but it just looked too fragile to me to build it into the hand. And as you say it never got respected in the servo service?
Okay understood about the probe testing.
Wooouii, another InMoov alive!
Red yes? What’s his little name Vlad Dracula? You could add these fangs I designed many years ago:
Jajajja. Is not bad idea. I think it…
Very nice prints and assembly!
Thank you very much coming from you is quite a compliment. It is a project that I love. It has given me a lot of hours of entertainment for mounting the mechanical part now this entertaining me much putting on electronic slowly and I sense that will give me many hours of entertainment programming and fine adjustments. Thank you very much for…[Read more]
Great project Alan!!
As mentionned Joel had done a great research on the hall effect sensors. The FSR are not very responsive unless pressure is applied. How did you manage to fix the two kapton copper wiring? Won’t they brake/tear after long term running?
Hey Gael, Thanks!
These FSRs are the exact same ones that many people are using for autolevelling 3d printers, I haven’t heard of them breaking under similar use. Here’s the exact ones that I’m using. https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9375
Because of their placement next to the servo housing they end up being very sensitive relative to the…[Read more]
Great video!! Let us follow the progress by posting timelapse if you will. I’m always glad when InMoov is being built by students.
The students are going to record their progress on a website they are going to build – I will post a link to it on here.
Very cool Marten! Once the finger is assembled, a little video will be nice to see!
Thanks and yes, when all is running fine together…. I will share a “little” video
I think this will happen, when I get the new servo’s because of the fit to the pulley’s.
I hope to get them next Tuesday.
I have sent 8 times Nervo boards to India. Five of those orders were dual Nervo Boards with components, so I suspect 5 other InMoov getting built in India.

Very nice module for a Finger Starter!!!
There is no doubt that the servo of 2,5kg will work because even a small SG92R works. With the Finger Starter there isn’t much friction. But such servo will burn for sure if used in the hand. The friction is far greater in many ways in the hand, that is the reason even a MG996 of 12kg Torque…[Read more]
The spring main function is to safe the servo mechanical (there is no direct blocking anymore).
And including my servo pulley’s, the finger “close position” gets a smaller arm length !
So this safes a lot of energy use from the servo, when the finger is in his “close position”
I’m almost sure this spring setup is enough to hold a…[Read more]
Why do you try to use such an old version of MyRobotLab? OpenCV is missing something in that old version.
Try with the one here:
Woooi nice finishing aspect! Aren’t the eyes a bit too close from each other? Or maybe it is not totally finished.
Hi Gael this is only a probe for fitting all, is no finished
Great pictures, I hope the mini makerfaire was a lot of fun!!
Thanks Gaël and yes it was “a lot of fun”
you can find all code installation here:
I hope this helps!
Thanks ill let you know on the progress hopefully it goes smooth.
Ah yeah, I know, these legs make a lot of jealous.
I don’t plan to share yet until I’m through with them, too many things to modify still.
You need to correctly specify the path in the script:
gesturesPath = “C:\Myrobotlab\ProgramAB bots\gestures”
aimlPath = “C:/Myrobotlab/myrobotlab.1.0.1412/develop/ProgramAB”
There is a tutorial link next to the map. (Hopefully it still works)
Ver handy solution!
Thanks for sharing
Very nice Sergey!
Is he all powered up and worky?
This InMoov found a nice and comfortable home apparently. No stress just good company.
thanks you for this compliment
Short circuits are to be expected!!
Progress on the stomach parts, nice!
Is your InMoov already hooked up to be powered?
hello Gael, sorry for this late answer, my Inmoov was not yet hooked up

I haven’t tried to upgrade my 2 tablets but since it is working fine under Windows 8, I don’t want to take the risk to brick them.

The pleasure that I met with you and wish i can help the group to complete Inmoov robot.
The Finger Starter is the index of the hand. If you are going to print and assemble the complete hand, you can re-use the index, but personally I like to keep the Finger Starter as a tester. Of course you can also re-use the servo motor and the Arduino Uno board. Though if you are planning to built the complete robot, you will need two Arduino…[Read more]

Nice hat, is your InMoov living in a sunny environment?
Good , in Spain we always have plenty of sunshine
This is a tutorial for to set your Chrome microphone:
By the way, if you use a Raspi3, I think the sound jack can use a jack that does also microphone, like the ear set for smartphone. This way you can test without using the USB 3.0 soundcard, because Linux can be tricky with USB devices.
Did you set your microphone into Chrome settings? Make sure your mic is correctly selected and not set for the default. I had the similar issue, once the servo’s would be activated, it seemed Chrome was not listening anymore. It’s important the servos can generate a lot of noise.
Very cool Davis! Can’t wait to see the head mounted on the torso.
Thanks Pedro, linux upower software won’t work with Windows (as far as I know). I am searching on the net to use powercfg -energy and powercfg -battery.
I have been using Linux for years, it is one of the reasons I opened my design.
Even though, I love Linux, there is still many things that need to be fixed for to have a simple OS working.…[Read more]
you are right, and is mooving to know why you choose windows, i all my life used windows but when started with linux have fall in love! I guess the script i put on git will still work if u know the correct path, can u try do search for BAT0 and see if the pc find it, if i can i will try test it n a windows laptop and see how can u configure it! Best luck
I added the “battery gesture”, and modified my gesture .aiml as well to get it in account. But I get this error:
IOError: (2, ‘No such file or directory’, ‘/sys/class/power_supply/BAT0/energy_now’)
So I suspect “energy_now” is in a different directory than yours.
upower -i /org/freedesktop/UPower/devices/battery_BAT0 if u run this on cmd does it work?
try use this path, or do a search for BAT0! Btw, change to linux! You will be surprise how much easy it is than windows
But where should the python grab the value, that is where I am a bit stuck.
Great progress with your aiml files! Did you check the aiml’s of Anthony (moz4r)? He also can load pictures on to the screen at request of the user and share data with other InMoov robots.
i have see some things of him yes! Python is a very powerfull tool and very easy to use, i will try to find what u need, my vacations ended so i dont have so much time but if i have time i will do it
Very nice! I was wondering how to modify my aiml to read the battery level of the pc running InMoov, any idea?
That should not be very hard, just a python to read the value and execute a mouth.speach with the value in the same python. I can try check when have time! I’m also sending emails and browsing net with inmoov, and setting events on google calendar
Great looking, nice choice of colors!
Fun time is about to start!!
Thanks for all these great pictures of the Tokyo Makerfaire!!
Very interesting Markus, I’m surprised how well the mini joysticks + remote are reliable to control the arms and hands.
Yes it works really good !
i need to practice a lot
The chair base brings me back to one of my old post:
Yes, I remember seeing that a long time ago. I will probably let my InMoov keep its chair base until the legs are finished. But no pressure Gael, please take your time. There are many other things that need to be done first.

Oh guys! The fair was awsome! I cannot remember how many 3d printers, robots, machines , VR glasses and whatever you can imagine I saw!!
It was really nice to see that the children are so taken into account in this event. Not only toys but serious electronic boards were soldered by them.
With regard to Inmmov, I was really surprised…[Read more]
Great progress and nice gesture expression!
Great! I remember a post on the InMoov forum mentionning something similar, It sure would be great to add that option on the next Nervo boards release.
Great Markus!! This is cool to be able to control the arms gestures so easily.
Once in position, can you still “capture the gestures” by voice to compile them later into one gesture?
Gael Langevin posted a new activity comment 11 months ago
Ehehe! Cool ! Long journey in perspective!!
You might want to adjust the sucking back material setting in your slicer software to avoid the “hair” between the parts. It will help for further prints and quality.
I am using Repetier Host and Slic3r. Which settings should I be looking at? (not currently at laptop)
Definitely a calibration issue with your printer. Your printer must be extruding a little bit more than necessary or the X and Y axis aren’t adjusted which might deform slightly your shapes. Try printing a calibration cube and circle to make sure you have it correct otherwise you will spend hours filling all the parts.
I agree with Gael. On some of the other smaller pistons I made before I realized it was a calibration issue I took very fine grit sandpaper and wrapped it around the piston, gripped firmly and twisted to remove of the excess til it worked in the receiver perfectly. Then I use a heat gun to apply a little heat and repeat the process with cheap…[Read more]
Cool, we will be around on the forum if you have questions and if you feel like sharing your pics on the community you are more than welcome!
Welcome Pedro. Cheers from Las Vegas!
Great picture!! I jumped a few times on the community to see what was new but didn’t take the time to write anything, I was just too busy.
But I want to say that your InMoov is looking very promising and I really like the pictures that you have posted on the 3d printing forum (french).
??? Ethem, is it you or a clone?
Yeah, I feel like the site is a dentist appendix.
If you have trouble, I may still have a complete script for InMoov ready to work on a Raspi.
