It’s funny Gael. As you can see my guy is mounted on an office chair base. I am used to him being much closer to ground level. It will take some getting used to.
So now for the big question. Where is the butt? Does he have that section designed?
I think he needs a nice squidgy butt Something comfy for him to sit on.
Currently I didn’t attach the butt, because it is where InMoov is fixed to the rolling platform.
Which I use a lot when travelling with InMoov.
What do you mean there’s no Butt,,,, I need the Butt – the Butt is the most important part –- and I know You could Sculpt a great Butt – stop freaking me out —,, Oh my god I’m having a panic attack I need some Valium,,,…[Read more]

I had the same \’problem\’.
Solution, print some 3mm rods and use those. A 100mm rod will do a hand I think. Insert into the joint and trim. Or print them individually.
Forgot I had these made up https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2531839

Where do we get the nuclear power source? That will solve the battery issues
Here are some switch covers for the back. You were asking about them Ray.
Thank you Perry, down loaded them now and will fire up the 3D printer in the morning. Like the look of your robots back as one piece, did you print that as one piece or did you join multiple pieces?, looks very good.
Your slicer should tell you the amount of filament used and you can get the part weight for from that. You will have to do the work though. That way you will have exact weight for your print settings

Sounds like you need a new printing guy. 3 shells are necessary for strength. I did not even know you could print with one shell. Look around for someone better.
Nice and smooth. Your print quality looks really good with no banding.
Looks can be deceiving, but thanks for the complement.
The shoulder pieces are probably the best parts on the whole robot, I’m more pleased at getting the ribbon to work through the bicep gear.
Some of the earlier pieces had real bad banding, turns out a spacer i fitted to the top of the Z axis screws to reduce the banding actually made it…[Read more]

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.
Perry posted a new activity comment 4 months, 3 weeks ago
I am unable to snake my wires through there. The piston interferes. I have them bundled though and might have to unbundle them so they can fit. I am using servo extension leads though and not ribbon cable.
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.
Here you go Ray
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 Enrique. Nice looking bot. I find that setting the servo limits allow me to open the mouth wider. I had to spend some time adjusting the position of the worm gear. It also helps to have a fast moving servo.
thank you very much

I had to do the same as my printer was not perfectly calibrated. I scaled in the X and Y directions but not the Z as this would change the pitch.
I had this problem with the jaw screw. After reading Perry’s comment i looked into how to scale stl files. Turns out it super easy using NetFab Studio, so i’m going to give it a try on the neck screw.

Wrist rotation is fine, the tubes are ptfe tubing, this is the same tube used in my hot end on my 3 d printer, they seem to be working well

Welcome, looks great
Everything is a tradeoff. They are basically clones and can be modified in the same way as the 805\’s.
A little less torque, a little less speed but definitely usable. I have been happy with them.
I use the HK15338. They are the same size and cost $15 USD. Available in the US too.
That”s a good price,,, they work alright,,?

Where do you get the ball bearings? I like your work. For myself I like the idea of no ball bearings though. That is just my preference. I like that this can mostly be printed without a lot of extra parts to buy. Even if a ball bearing installation is much more efficient. You\’ve done nice work though.
I like the idea of no ball bearings too, but as I began with my InMoov there was one problem, the circle holes are not realy round and the move of my head not realy even. You need a big Servo with a lot Power to move it.
With the Arms it is the same, a lot of Power from the Servo is used to move the wormgear. With the ball-bearing I…[Read more]
Brilliant… Love this setup. I am using much stronger servos than the 805bbs too so this is something I would like to use. I also have been experimenting with a new low temp Poly carbonate so now my PivCenter, worm and Piv Gears are incredibly strong as well… Nice… thanks
So are these the correct sizes in mm-
689 bearing is -9mm x 17mm x 5mm
61709 bearing is-45mm x 55mm x 6mm
I just done a quick search with the bearing Numbers you gave and this size keeps showing up -just like to double check before parting with any money- plus i might some in the bearing bin back on the farm-
Nice work on the Mod,…[Read more]
yes, that are the correct size of the ball-bearings.
Really nice job
You can get Arduino\’s at Amazon or Adafruit. There are literally tons of places in the US to get them. As I said below, just Google these. Hobby King is a good place to look for servos
hi thanks i have a question about the adriano what is better what he have on his finger starter or new what they sell i not see much anymore what he have
Dude, you already asked the same question 2 days… Perry and Bob have answered you. Just buy one or a couple and be done. No need to be so paranoid about where you buy as even the eBay Chinese copies work fine….

I don\’t know where you are located so I do nt know the best place for you to buy parts. Gael has a bom section that list the parts. Just search for them. I use Google in the United States.
Looks great. Really nice prints.
Thanks a lot! Perry!
Thanks Gael, I a trying to adopt some of your design practices to make parts robust and cleanly exported. I have stopped putting a radius on everything (just because they are easy and look cool).

Thanks Marten. I like it a lot. There is still a bit of tuning to do but the geometries are good and the wrist rotation is solid. I may still put an inline tension spring in place but not sure. Time will tell if it is needed.
Here is my version of the forearm. Basically trying the same as Marten. I wanted a straight run for the tendons so I would not need the tensioning spring system. Kept Gael’s servo holder and guide system. Also the wrist drive is in line and not offset which I think makes it a little more robust. Used a slimmed down version of Marten’s…[Read more]
Looks awesome Perry !
It’s a nice option to use the default servo’s
And are you happy with the mechanical results ?
For you it’s better to see and feel the results instead of the default setup

Seeing Marten’s great work I am rebuilding my forearms as well. Similar concept except I am trying to preserve as much of Gael’s design as possible. Works with his servo holder and standard servos. I had to hollow out RotaWrist1V4 so now there is a straight path for the tendons. The wrist drive is not offset so a straight shaft drives the wrist.…[Read more]
It’s nice to see your idea about this.
I think I will see your complete setup tomorrow, I hope it works well and I can’t wait to see a video !

We don’t all work as fast as you
Cool design Perry,
this is nice to give room for the tendons to run straight out from the wrist to the Servobed.
Looks great. This is a good inspiration
I am using Solidworks. I explained to Gael below in my thread about my back cover how I modify the STL files.
To share your info about that !
Almost done with all the parts.
Only missing the small Wrist gear.
The shaft and servo adapter feels good enough for me.
I hope the length from the shaft is OK
If yes, I will upload all parts to Thingiverse in 30 minutes
All new files are uploaded: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1824042
Almost done with my design. Just waiting for filament to arrive in the mail so I can print. My design will use many of Gael\’s original servo bed and has a printable shaft. HAd to spend a fair amount of time hollowing out the arm and wrist parts but there is a straight run for all the tendons now.
Hi Rodolfo and Perry,
Yeh, I think it’s fine
Just started to print all the parts.
I can’t wait to see your idea
Which program(s) are you using, during re-editing Gaël’s STL files ?
Hi Kevon. You are correct that the position in the back is for the tablet. Some people use other tables or raspberry PI\’s or other controllers to run the bot.
Sounds like it is time to follow you on Thingiverse
I think after this weekend I will upload all files, which are needed to upgrade the Wrist part and this includes the new ServoBed for the small servo’s and the Wrist servo.
I can’t see that these smaller servo’s can hold it for a longer period
But so far it looks good and including the springs I think it’s safe enough to use them!
Really fantastic, you did it
Thanks Rodolfo !
And all are still running with MRL
That is awesome. No tensioning spring is the best feature! I guess you could add a tension spring like you had in your single finger tutorial.
I think this is pretty innovative which begs the question what does the rest of your bot look like?
Yes for sure I will include the springs which I’m using with my Finger_Starter kit.
This makes programming a closed position more easy and they are to safe the servo mechanical way
Once again nice work. It would be great to have a printable shaft for the wrist as opposed to a dog bone. Just another part I would have to wait for when I want to try something late at night. I thought you had a different servo offset in your previous vid and didn\’t need the universal joint functionality
A printable shaft would be cool, I only think it’s not strong enough !
And DogBone shafts are very basic parts which are used in RC cars.
Most local dealers will selling them.
About the servo, in the first test video I was using a “Low Profile” servo.

Hello Marten. I came to that exact same conclusion last night while assembling my tendons. They have been very finicky and I am not confident the spring system will hold up. The wrist rotation really plays with the tensions and geometries. I was thinking of a system where the lines ran through the centerline of the wrist. The servo can be moved…[Read more]
Hello Perry, this is what happen with my new setup.

Working with STL files can be a real hassle as they are among the hardest to modify after the fact. As you can see in the pics below they import with thousands of facets so there are not really planar surfaces to work with.

Thanks Marten for sharing! I have added your Thingiverse pulleys to the InMoov collection.
Thanks Gaël, to put them to the InMoov collection.
Here you go. Still a bit of a WIP but curious to see how it fits for others.
Thanks a lot.
Agreed, nice work….
Indeed, very cool design!
Thanks for sharing
Sorry for multiple posts here.
Nice job! Are you going to share the design? I would sure use it as I don’t have an on board computer either. Thanks
Great work and very nice adaptation. Which software do you use for to do that?
It doesn’t look like Blender. It’s interesting to know because other builders might be interested to see how you re-worked your parts with only the STL at start.
Thanks for the explaination Perry.
When exporting from Blender to STL format I use a plugin within Blender to check if parts are clean without inverted facets. This plugin did not exist when I started InMoov project, therefore some of my first parts could not come out clean
One of the reasons I do not create parts with too many round edges,…[Read more]
I’ve just started the project, so sorry if my question has been answered previously.
I though that the upper back was for mounting the tablet. does this mean the the robot can operate without the tablet?
Hi Kevon. You are correct that the position in the back is for the tablet. Some people use other tables or raspberry PI’s or other controllers to run the bot.
Making a back cover to fill up the Lenovo hole since I don’t us a tablet. It follows the lines of Gaels back design and matches the contours.

I use the same chair technique on mine. I welded a section of pipe to it to bring him up to normal level. Slides right into Gaels mount.
Great ob and ingenuity in printing.
You must have great patience. I usually am waiting for the printer to stop to put parts on one at a time. I didn\’t realize how many parts there were until I saw you lay them all out.
In fact, the biggest parts are the last ones I prited.
My Prusa i2 cannont build more than 7~8 cm height. So thought about building a Delta printer for bigger parts.
However, in this case I couln’t wait and printed the big parts in two pieces.
I think I’ll built the Delta anyway for future parts.
