    Perry, that is just what I need. That back looks like a single piece, but is several parts! Your InMoov is really fantastically finished. I need switch fillers if you are 3D designing any for the back?

      Hi lorn. I hear ya. I need to fill those in. I’ll get to those soon. I am thinking it should be pretty easy. On a work trip so another week and I will be home. I have my second EZRobot controller waiting for me too so I’m excited to get back to it.

    Wow, the cables fit through the gap. What happens when you rotate the arm? The arm cables have always been an issue on my InMoov, have run the forearm & hand in sleeving externally, but the shoulder cabling is still a mess.
    Great pictures, looking really good Ray

    • The cable relative to the shoulder moves in the gap, the cables relative to the bicep are stationary. The elbow piston clears the ribbon cable by a 2 mm inside the gear, gets a bit closer outside the gear on the bicep end but still clears it just.

    Hi Steve
    I was thinking about your ideas on a robot meet. One idea might be to have meet-up using video conferencing. I use “zoom meeting” at work regularly and its free. We could set up a time/date that suits people is the US also maybe. Its really simple and you can use your mobile phone/laptop/pc etc to participate. We could keep it…[Read more]

    • Hi Lorn, that’s a brilliant idea. I’ve not seen Zoom before. It look a bit like face time.
      I’ll join up and perhaps we can do a test run together.

    Hi Steve, thanks
    Been building my InMoov since about last August when I bought my Wanhoa printer. Started using EZB about January time. I can send you my files if you want as I found that looking at existing setups answered so many questions. Also chat to Bob Houston on the forums as hes made his files available. They really give an insite to…[Read more]

  • I am programming my InMoov using EZ robot software. I have taken his forearms off as I am updating his servos for his hands, so only part of him works at the moment. His head, neck and torso is working in this video. I have added an adapted “Bob Houston” neck on him by Gestalt73. Fitted a speaker in his mouth, but need to work on the…[Read more]

    • Lorn, that’s brilliant. How long have you been working on your Inmoov? I’m using EZ to co troll mine but I’m not as far ahead as you. Where are you in the UK?

    That looks great

    Hi Francis
    3 servos for the shoulder – arm swing front to back, away from body and arm rotate. Plus the bicep makes 4. Its clearer when you have printed all the parts out, the pictures of the shoulder build start to make more sense. Your robots looking really good. Lorn

    Hi Wayne – very good point about it being upside down! I am not sure if it will fit in the head that way around but at least I could hold it in the vice whilst taking the video. Been waiting on the camera parts to arrive before I finish the head – camera finally arrived yesterday.

  • lorn campbell posted an update 4 months ago

    Mm InMoov face and eyes being tested. Just using a small servo tester so its not calibrated properly yet.

    • Looks great, but you had me worried for a moment when I compared to mine! Is there a reason you’ve mounted the eye mechanism upside down vs. Gael design? Does it give you some benefit? I don’t have a completed skull yet, to see how the clearances and space work out with your orientation. :)

    Finally started to paint my InMoov so dismantled him and am rebuilding and spray painting away. I also got the base stand sorted out and am now printing the final bits of the stomach parts. That left hand is still in a plastic bag so must build that finally!
    Just a note about picture uploads on this site – using an iPhone to take pics in…[Read more]

    Hi Natalie
    Ask any questions you want, InMoov is such an unusual project, you just get hooked by it. I stumbled across it because I am learning software programming and wanted to also try a bit of 3D printing. I think the first I saw of it was some high school kid on the internet using a wooden version of an InMoov hand for his exams. He was…[Read more]

    • Hi Lorn,

      Thanks so much for your message. Your story is fascinating. I do have a few more questions, if you don’t mind.

      Where do you live?
      What do you do for a living?
      What do you do for fun / leisure?
      How did you find out about InMoov and what attracted you to it?
      Do you have your own 3D printer?
      What do you hope to achieve in the end? Any…[Read more]

  • Here are the lower stomach parts

  • Here are latest pictures of my robot build

  • Hi everybody, finally got around to uploading some pictures of my inmoov. My printerstopped working recently but all working again now and printing the left arm!!

  • lorn campbell posted a new activity comment 10 months, 3 weeks ago

    Hi Gael, great to talk to you. I am still printing the hand and forearm and will look at the software again later. All going well!
    Quick question – where is a cheap place to buy the extension springs for the hand tensioner? Can only find 20mm long not 10mm long. Also is that the spring length only or total length? all the best, Lorn…[Read more]

    I have bought Wanhao i3 V2 printer and have started to print the hand and wrist parts. Using PLA to print with. I will add pictures soon. Built the starter finger and got that to work with myrobotlab software but no luck with voice control yet, although it chats away and hears me OK.!
