    So is there any estimate on how many complete/incomplete inmoovs there are in the world? seems like there are about 20 or so completed with videos on them and at least a few hundred being worked on that I can find documentation on so there are probably about 3-5K worldwide I am estimating? I am wondering how many nervos have been purchased.

    • Hello,
      Way, WAY above those numbers!
      The current estimation 16/03/19 is above a thousand built partly complete. We have no idea how many complete robot there is.
      To give you an exemple, I was recently visiting a school, where they have 3 complete (with legs) InMoov. They never posted pictures or videos of their robots…
      The 1000 clones is based…[Read more]

    • Well I’d say your number is likely higher.. due to the fact that the InMoov community has over 6,000 users now. IF you figure only HALF of those people built there InMoovs in one form or another.. and than add the fact as you said a school had 3 of them.. and I’m going to be building 2 of them .. one male one female. So he’ll have a companion LOL…[Read more]

    I was able to calibrate my printer to get most of the parts to push fit. However still struggling with getting some neck pistons and shafts that work together right off the print-bed. I got a prusa I3. What slicer software and general settings are peeps using? I was going with 20% infill and 3 perimeters with .25mm layer height. Thinking about…[Read more]

    • I have an anet a6 and found that I got best results using slic3r pe and using .16 layer. I also used 30% infill. First piston I did, I had .24 and it was a pain, when I went to .16 all others are smooth as.

    Just started printing all the parts and trying to source some servos

    • Hi Karthos.. please feel free to post your findings on the servos. and which ones you are using?

      • Hello, I got 5 of the HS-805BB for the lower stomach, head and possibly clavi part of shoulder. I have been finding some modified sleeves online to use smaller MG996r for something possibly. I noticed some people are using them for shoulder but I am still undecided. I got the chest and back plates assembled but havnt meshed them I also got most…[Read more]

    • Very good. I’ve also found in the writings this.:
      1 x HK15298 or MG996r servo motors SO it appears for most parts you can subsitute an HK15298 with a MG996r .. Good to know 🙂
