    Hi Marcia, Welcome and brilliant that you made the decision.
    I use Wanhao D6 and a D6+ printing only in ABS.
    Theres a great community to accompany you. Good Luck

  • Hello World, Today is a good day 100% of the head printed and overall 30% of “Jeeves” InMoov is printed. Dry assembly and insertion of Microsoft LifeCam Studio V2 in right eye. Next week starts the challenge of soldering the NervoBoards and assembly while continuing printing the rest of the body.
    Have a great weekend everyone!

    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.

    Bravo Jacques, une photo bientôt?

    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?

    sorry Chuah Wei Jie, I meant to say in my album.

  • Michael Hayward posted a new activity comment 1 month, 1 week ago

    Hi Chuah Wei Jie, I have loaded the setting I am using in CURA for my ABS-X, different but they more or less work for me. With each printer and each print material they will be different. big difference I chose to print in 0.1
    Have a good day

    Many thanks Richard, much appreciated, much printing to go.

  • Michael Hayward posted a new activity comment 1 month, 1 week ago

    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?

  • Michael Hayward posted a new activity comment 1 month, 1 week ago

    Covie is brilliant! And you and your team has done brilliantly to build it so quickly. Good luck on the next stage, and as you say it will never be finished… as it is a journey of discovery and co-working and not a destination.

    • Thanks Michael! Wonderful hearing from fellow InMoov enthusiasts….our Makerbot replicator has been printing non stop about 15 hours a day six days a week for the past five months….InMoov is the gift that keeps on giving, to students and teachers alike.

    Hi Richard,
    I like your InMoov sticker/card with logo + did you print all your InMoov on your Wanhao D3?

    • Hi Michael, yep, I have a couple of Wanhao D3’s and it’s all printed by them. They’re different generations (I forget which version numbers they are, one is an early variant, before they introduced the power supply with the angled screen), They have all the usual community modifications, like the AZZA braces etc. The printer on the right of the…[Read more]

  • Dear InMoov world,

    A quick update from a chilly Jeeves InMoov, the last snows are melting at my workshop in France.

    Like many, my InMoov journey has been a bit stop start, but now both printers are printing as fast as they can so that I can say “Hello world” as soon as possible.

    Wherever you are in the world have a good day, a great weekend and…[Read more]

    Hi Robo Heury, I am sorry to say that on both links we get error 404. Can you amend or find another way to show photos?
    Many thanks

    Hi Peter, Many thanks, very much appreciated.

  • Michael Hayward posted a new activity comment 1 month, 2 weeks ago

    Hi Doc Johnson, very much appreciated, I know what to do now. Many thanks

  • WOW, I just saw that we are 6,001 Members worldwide, another level has been reached.
    what great news that the community keeps on growing!

    • agreed, can’t wait to see some inmoov meetups, chatting to each other

    • 🙂
      Well, there was a long list of members waiting for approval. Checking them all today made the number of members increase in a short delay.
      New members to be approved must have a InMoov picture for their profile picture. (can be anything as long as it’s an InMoov part).
      It will save me time when approving members.
      Thanks and welcome to all new members!!

    Well done, very impressive, which eyes and eye lids did you use? plus lots of other questions, such as do you notice any noise reduction from the servos?

  • Michael Hayward posted a new activity comment 1 month, 2 weeks ago

    Hi Doc Johnson, that is great news, many thanks.
    I have found a couple of sites where they show you how to strip down the camera to remove the case etc. do you have any guidance on the mods that would be required? or even (pushing my luck) some pictures?

  • Michael Hayward posted a new activity comment 1 month, 3 weeks ago

    Well done looks great!

  • Michael Hayward posted a new activity comment 1 month, 3 weeks ago

    Well done, I think the neck / shoulder looks particularly great! Well done

  • Has anyone integrated “Microsoft LifeCam Studio V2” web cam into the eyes?

    • Yes, it requires some mods, but it works well. Microphone is not very responsive inside the head, the the video is good.

    • You have great timing; I was just getting ready to install my EZB Camera in the other eye, so I had the assy apart. I took some photos; keep in mind, I just did this as a quick and easy setup; if you think about it, you can do a much cleaner job than I did. Photos are in my album area

    Hi Ayodele,
    I like your positive attitude, it is better to try and fail than to not try at all. Each failure is a sucess because we learn from it. We change our hipothesis move forward and try again.
    In terms of holding a spoon or fork, there are adapters that can slide onto a finger even an inmoov finger
    I will see what I can find.
    Good luck with…[Read more]

  • Is anyone from the InMoov community going to the London Science Museum saturday 24th June? I am attending the \”Talk: How to make a robot + private tour of Robots exhibition\” starts at 8:30 to 14:00

  • Michael Hayward posted a new activity comment 2 years, 5 months ago

    WOW this and the previous post are GREAT, what software are you using?

  • Michael Hayward posted a new activity comment 2 years, 7 months ago

    He does, thank you, and his own exclusive 3d printer.
    I will have to learn to be patient! 3d printing is slow!

  • Lol part of the preparation was making sure, I was sufficiently motivated to continue to the end, then the construction of a little workshop in the garden for building InMoov and buying equipment etc.

  • After month’s of preparation, the first print, 24th September 2016 what a great day!

    • Hello Michael! A finger in the Wanhao! That’s for sure it’s at least a month of preparation.
      What will you do next month?
      Just kidding, hey!
      Thanks for sharing your enthousiasm.
      🙂
