    How would this be possible to answer… I mean since it would depend on infill % of each part… You really need to ask it this way… at say 50% infill, how much does “x” part way in PLA in ABS

    • Infill won’t be enough, what is your nozzle size and how many outline/perimeter shells do you intend to use? I assume it will be hard to find somebody who has all the parts separated or kept track of filament usage.
      Another issue is failing parts. As most of the parts are individual you might need several attempts to print them successfully. And…[Read more]

      • 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

    As Perry said… so just download it from the download section then…

    Ok I shouldn’t ask but are other inMoovs invited to the bachelor party?… I have just the entertainment… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xulnNDLlXf4

    JawhingeV1 and JawhingeV3 are two different parts you need both of them… You will need both jaw piston v1 and jaw support v1 as well… Go look at the parts library all the parts are shown in 3d… It will help you visualize what you need to print…

    Yep… and it aligns the same way for both arms..

    LOL…. great video Juerg…. Glue maybe but I wouldn’t let Marvin near a soldering iron if I were you… I really need to learn how to prepare and edit video… On my list of things to learn this year…

    That won’t work for this application for a few reasons… First and foremost no two servos accurately position the same… And if they don’t they tend “fight” each other… A second reason is you would have to solder the pot to both circuit boards… again, won’t work… see reason 1… The simplest and only way is to follow the tutorial Gael wrote….

    To successfully print with ABS (which is all I print with btw) you really need a printer that can do it… I have an UP Box and an UP Mini 2… both print abs flawlessly… Since you probably won’t be buying a new printer here are some tips that hopefully will help… A good print surface to use with ABS is Buildtak … it really sticks well to…[Read more]

    • I’ve never heard a bad thing said about “Build Tanks”,,,,
      I got to get back to the grind,,, the only thing I can think off without doing mod work on your printer is un-bolt the small fan and turn it around so its blowing up instead of down onto your print,,, and slow the fan speed down ,, (the flaw with design is they set both fan to the one s…[Read more]

    They are not ready yet…. When they are I am sure Gael will let us know….

    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

    • Hi Hans
      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]

    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….

    You have to do some sanding and filing. FYI other parts may also need some sanding and filing as well in order to fit and/or work properly.

    Nice work Boris… I would love to see the finished gearbox when you get it all together…

    Did you create your own custom ROS package for this? I still use ez robot but would love to move up to ROS as it looks like much more can be done with ROS than either ez robot or MyRobotLab… I dabbled with ROS a while back so maybe it’s about time I have another look…

    • Hey Richard, thanks!

      Each toolkit has it’s own benefits. There’s a nice community built up around InMoov+MRL, so it’s a great way to get started without writing everything from scratch. Another R.S.S.C. club member is building an InMoov using EzRobot, and I think there are some others on the forum as well.

    Fantastic Alan… Best realistic movements so far, hands down!… I am working on a new inMoov which I am also planning some sophisticated movement management…

    Unfortunately I only have a video of the first inMoov I built almost 2 years ago… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7YvCuU4EWU8

  • Richard R posted a new activity comment 1 year ago

    Yep, I am using 180deg MG995 servos so this should work perfectly and increase grip strength as well…

  • Richard R posted a new activity comment 1 year ago

    Awesome Marten… going to try these servo pulleys with my new inMoov I am currently building… good work man…

    • Thanks Richard,
      Mechanical way it looks good enough for me.
      These pulley’s will need the full 180 degrees from a servo !
      Make sure your servo’s supporting this 180 degree turn.

      My next step is to see, if the smaller servo’s are strong enough for the complete InMoov Hand !
      I hope to find some spare-time tomorrow, during my work… :-)

  • Richard R posted a new activity comment 1 year ago

    Agreed, nice work….

  • Richard R posted a new activity comment 1 year ago

    Sounds good… looking forward to your results…

  • Richard R posted a new activity comment 1 year ago

    They may save weight but they may not be strong enough for the inMoov hand… The hand is not the same as the finger starter. There is a lot more friction on the push/pull finger mechanisms. The servos need to work much harder than the simple finger kit… However, let us know if they work because less weigh is always welcome…

    • Hi Richard,
      I’m almost sure these smaller servo’s are strong enough for the Hand.
      (don’t forget the special pulley which I’m using!)
      The spring which I’m using now, is perfect to start.
      If needed, I can use a stronger spring to get more torque.
      I hope to show the results this weekend :-)
