    Anyone have any idea how the power supply is connected to the Nervo Board? I’m lost.

    • Hello,
      The power supply is connected to the Nervo Board via the yellow XT60 connector.
      It is wise to add, between the XT60 and the power supply, a main switch for safety shutdown. The switch can be placed in the side back location.


      • Is the XT60 connector attached to the Nervo Board by soldering at the port of 5/6V?

        • Yes it is.
          There is a picture showing it in the tutorial.

          • Dear Gael, in the tutorial it stated that “Soldering the little back connector option 3.3V or 5V to power last analog pins.” in Step 3. If I’m using the same voltage for all servo, do I need to solder this? (I’m not using the 3rd nervo board for the finger sensor as I didn’t build that part)

            • I am guessing you will use a PIR sensor which requires 5V. The PIR sensor detects human motions, it’s nice to have on the robot.
              That means you will solder the 5V to power the last analog pins.
              To have all servos working on the same voltage, you need to solder the two main jumpers…[Read more]

            • I wonder do I need to solder the third red dot (As stated in Step 2, the one at the bottom-left in the picture) if same voltage applied?

              • Yes if you want to give 6V to the PIR.
                But note that it’s a 3 point solder, this gives you the choice, you can give the PIR 6V or 5V.
                This will give 6V to the PIR:

                This will give 5V to the PIR:

    My Marvin got a new sensor, a Intel Realsense D415 to take depth images. I mounted it on the head with an angle that allows to see the floor in front of the robot. Mounting it on the head also allows for a good observation point and the head has a wide movement range. Adding an IMU into the head is probably the next thing to add to get more…[Read more]

    • Hello Juerg,
      The plan is to add the Intel RealSense in MyRobotLab, but I don’t when it will happen.
      Did you mount it above the head? or instead of the eyes?
      You should be able to post pictures again, there was an issue with WordPress.

      • Hi Gael
        I have to admit that I do not run my robot any more with MRL. It gave me too many problems with Arduino connections, it takes ages to start it up, it is overloaded with stuff I do not need. So I wrote my own servo task in python to control Marvins joints and have other python tasks to control the cart, read Kinect depth and cam images and…[Read more]

        • Thanks for the reply,
          However, could you make a test for us with the latest version of MRL( work in progress), just to check if the the depth image works out of the box with the RealSense?

          • Tried openNi but does not show anything (but also does not provide controls to select the streaming device?). Do I need to use another service?

            • No it should be with the OpenNI service.
              Have you tried the “CAPTURE” button?
              Do you get this red error line at the bottom of the swinggui?
              “found 0 devices – Jenga software not initialized :P”

    • When starting openNi I get “initContext found 1 devices” in the bottom line.
      Clicking on “capture” in the service page I only get “starting user worker” but no image.
      Tried all the buttons, no image is shown. Would be nice to see what device is connected.

      • Do you have other imaging devices connected or only the Intel RealSense?
        Maybe OpenNI detects another imaging source.
        We could try to add manually the drivers in C:myrobotlabmyrobotlab.1.1.173librariesnativeOpenNI2Drivers

        I did that for my Orbbec Astra, it worked partially.The depth image is working but the skeleton wouldn’t get activated…[Read more]

        • hahh, still had my kinect plugged in. Without the kinect I get now this “Jenga software not initialized” message when starting the openNi service. I send you the pic of the mounted cam to your mail account.

          • IntelRealSense on InMoov

            Nice idea to keep the InMoov cap above the sensor.
            Okay so MRL.173 is missing the drivers for to get the RealSense working.
            I think these two files would need to be added in C:\myrobotlab\myrobotlab.1.1.173\libraries\native\OpenNI2\Drivers
            IntelRealSense driver


    • not a problem, I can rerun a test with an updated mrl version whenever it’s ready. Will partially be on vacation over the next weeks, so maybe no immediate response. Have a good time.

    • Hi all, how are you getting on Juerg? I was just looking at the Intel offer “RealSense™ Depth Camera D435 and Tracking Camera T265 bundled together for one great price, and get started with your next project today”
      And am feeling I am going to go for it. But really thinking how can I integrate the D435 without ruining the look. I was thinking hig…[Read more]

      • Thought about the location too. I need to see the path my cart is moving on and first thought of mounting the cam on my cart. It would look nicer instead of the head location but the flexibility of the head makes is much more usable. From the picture you can see that the device is partially covered by the hat and it can be removed if needed. I…[Read more]

        • as a second thought: before you purchase the T265 make sure you understand how you can implement your odometry for the device. I read through the article and had no idea at the end of how I would have to accomplished this. My cart uses an encoder attached to one of its wheels and produces around 3 ticks per mm of robot movement.

          • Hi Juerg, Many thanks, really appreciated. I will go through more thought process. well done and many thanks for pathfinding with the Realsense. I believe that in time this will become the optimal solution over the Orbbec or the Kinnect.

  • Finally a small step forward.
    Too bad it doesn’t fit together, guess I need to calibrate it again. Do I need to polish it using sand paper or anything after the printing?

    • For the rectangular hole I sanded a tiny bit on the bits that fit in. For the rest I only took off bits that should not be there, it was a (very) tight fit.

      • Still trying on different calibration, and it still doesn’t fit. I’m using PLA and the calibrator like always exceeding less than 1mm? Not really sure about that. Is the wall thickness that affect the printing exceeding the original scale?

        • Hi Chuah Wei Jie, I am only printing in ABS-X, sorry my 3D printing knowledge and experience is insufficient to be able to help. Maybe someone else with more experience can help.

          • My first parts were printed at .24 and didn’t fit so well. I then printed at .15 and they all fit together nicely. Also looked a lot better as finished product.

    • Mark is right, the lower the layer height the better. I was able to fit stuff together with .3 layers until I got to the worm gears and piston shafts. needed to go all the way to .12 to get those to operate smoothly. always had my infill on 15% for most parts, the “load bearing” parts or parts I thought would be stressed I went up to 30% infill.…[Read more]

    • Some things I found that help; as noted the higher quality layer height the better the fit, try your finest settings (say .1) and see where you are, then increase until they don’t fit. Use PLA+ if your going to use PLA. Amazons is cheap and works great. (Premium PLA) Print just the way the file is loaded, do not re-arrange the parts. Keep trying,…[Read more]

  • Morning builders ! The printing process is finally get to start. I\’m using Anet A8 3D Printing. I wonder is there any suggested Start and End G-Code for such machine for a better result of printing? I\’m using Cura.

    • Great news! good luck Chuah Wei Jie! it is a great journey you are embarking upon. Unfortunately I do not know enough on Anet A8 to help you. But Cura works well for me.

      • Hi Michael ! I believe it will be. Actually I’m using Cura for the printing too. the thing that I wonder is that I’m not sure the setting of the Basic and Advanced column will provide a good printing result or not. I had uploaded my setting interface in my album. What do you think?

  • Morning builders ! If I just build for the upper part (Head + Neck), I wonder how many Arduino Mega does it required?

    Hello builders. I\’m new to Inmoov but planning to work on it. Does anyone have any suggestion or reference on how to start? Currently planning to build the head and neck part.
