    Try to sand using sandpaper all the gears to make them smooth enough to run free each other.

    • Hi Darren,
      At this week end MakerFaire Lille, we got the shoulder parts printed at our neighboor’s printer. No filling required to assemble and to rotate the parts.
      By default the shoulder can only rotate 180 degrees, that is because of the limitation of the servo potentiometer.
      That being said the PivWormV2.stl should be able to turn 360 degrees…[Read more]

    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?

    Great job Markus!! I love your wheel platform, especially when i see Robyn driving!!

  • Dimitris posted an update 1 year, 7 months ago

    This is a wheel base i made for my inmoov robot. The basic idea is from Gaels wheel base.
    You must have some welding skills to complete this base construction.
    The servos i use is turnigy 1270HV 40kg.

    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.

    mods for turnigy 1270HV 40kg

  • Dimitris posted a new activity comment 1 year, 9 months ago

    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.

    Thank you amby! This is turnigy 1270HV 40kg servo. With some mods it can fit perfect.

    • Hello Aggelos,
      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.
