    hi Aldric – now you have finished please explain your process for the finishing – looks very good

    • I used vinyl ester resin on top of the 3D parts, used 4 coats, than i used sand paper to smooth out the surfaces, then i used 3M Polish 09639. Just the ester, paint brushes and polish cost me 150 euros.

    Hi Gael – great info thank you.what is the consistency of the ABS slurry you use. your prints are look great.

    • The slurry is almost totaly liquid. It’s hard to say how much percent of ABS and acetone. Maybe 20 to 30 percent of ABS for 100 acetone.

    hi Gael..never say never…..i have another complete InMoov, just wanted a more portable fellow as well.
    he will probably end up with arms i think

    Hi bob – thanks. you can actually make Inmoov look very good with a bit more thought and patience on the finishing and build. its a great cosmetically pleasing robot.basically the idea behind it was to have a more portable one. so i can transport it and play around with the programming – plug in the power and sit it on coffee table or any room i…[Read more]

    printed the parts @100 microns then sealed the parts with Acetone vapor. then sanded several times, they sprayed with filler/primer then glossed. very similar to how rentaprinta finished his Inmoov

    Gael has not released the back covers for InMoov yet.

  • Nanomole posted a new activity comment 1 year, 4 months ago

    No. as he is not having arms fitted, just head and sensors. he’s as big as he’s going to get!. I have another complete inmoov

  • Nanomole posted an update 1 year, 4 months ago

    A Desktop InMoov. going good so far. spent time on the finish and added a few BlinkM`s for bling. running off a windows 7 tablet

    • WOW! That finish looks great!

      Does the mesh connecting the clavicles near the neck get in the way of the shoulder pistons?

    • No. as he is not having arms fitted, just head and sensors. he’s as big as he’s going to get!. I have another complete inmoov

    • Wow, nice finishing! How did you do it?

    If I decide to go this route, a camera will be mounted inside Inmoovs forehead. the color of the eyes can also be changed, red, cats eyes etc………..

    for those interested – The OLED eyes are from a project on the adafruit website. you can also customize to how you want it to look. lots of great ideas on there too……

    Hi Gael – It is a Carbon fiber reinforced ABS mix. I must say it prints very very well. it wears your nozzle out though. I had to replace my nozzle after printing a 1000 grams of the filament. still well worth the price of a nozzle. I purchased from 3DXTECH in the usa.

    I will do a short demo video so you get the idea. still think I like the eyes…[Read more]

    Hi Gael – yes the Eyes blink, the iris gets smaller or bigger depending on the light. you are the expert!….yes printed at 100 micron, then sanded and sprayed with car primer filler.
    I have printed all Inmoov in ABS and all the gears and pistons in carbon fiber(very light and strong).

    Thank you for sharing such a great project (which has taken…[Read more]

    • Hey we want a video of the eyes in action!
      Carbon fiber ABS or PLA?
      I have only seen carbon fiber PLA until now, but maybe it’s a new product.

      Car filler primer is great for finishing on ABS. I use a polyurethane brand, the only thing I discovered, is that you really need to wait to make sure your coatings are super well dry to see if the…[Read more]

    Trying out some OLEDS for InMoovs eyes. they react to noise and light too!

    • Woooi, might be a bit scary for children!! But I see the point!!
      Does it blink the eyes lid?
      Nice finishing surface on your prints.
      Did you use car primer filler? Are you printing in PLA or ABS?
      It is what I do when I want a good finish job surface for to gunspray car paint. But it works easy on ABS, unfortunately the results aren’t very good on PLA.
