  • Refurbishment of my original Inmoov – dropped the Iron Man colour scheme for a classic black and white and changed out the 12VDC gear motors for servos.

    Could not resist a trial so instead of MyRpbot Lab and serial arduino/nervo board control changed to DMX using QLC+ lighting control to do scene/chaser and show control.

    Maria’s Chest
    Adding the Chest assembly accentuates InMoov’s uniqueness; InMoov is a striking work of art.
    Creations that combine innovative engineering with artistic style are rare.

    • The shoulder logo was printed in Jet Black. After 52 minutes, the Prusa i3 MK3S printer paused and prompted me to unload the black filament and load the white filament. This shoulder matches the theme of the center element with white lettering on a black background.

      • In mine, I went the other way, White background with a black logo.
        Same process, pause the print at the first layer of the logo, to look so much better than painting. 🙂

    • very nice print. what is that filament?

      • The filament is Prusa 1.75 mm PETG Jet Black and PETG White.
        I am now printing 24 hours a day with PETG. I love PETG filament with the Prusa i3 MK3S printer.

    • Thanks for the information

  • Creaky torso video. Does anyone have any ideas how to eliminate the creaking?

    • Grease! Did you grease everything? I used white lithium grease. That took care of any creaking.

      • Check the length of screws you used to fix discunder – In my build they were a fraction long and were dragging onto the torso shaft behind.

    Maria’s Head Added to Torso
    The head and articulated neck were added to the PETG Torso. I like the flexibility of the new neck.
    The life like expression capability is intriguing.

    • My first InMoov is still on-the-run; the missing InMoov was built with the old neck design using PLA filament.
      The new articulating neck is an excellent improvement.

  • Kaa posted an update 3 weeks, 1 day ago

    I\’m about to order my first finger starter and planning to print it through an online store. If I\’m using PLA to print with a layer thickness of 0.1mm, what would the recommended solid infill be? There are 3 options to choose from at my local printers: 20% sparse infill, 50% or 100% solid infill. Any recommendations?

  • Frank Parks posted an update 3 weeks, 1 day ago

    Maria’s Torso
    Building the Torso with PETG was straight forward thanks to Gael’s detailed instructions.

    • It helps to add the articulating neck during the build of the Torso.

    • Did you notice the shoulder pistons are visible in the photo?
      Installing the “Pistonbase” and “PistonClavi” will make the shoulder installation easy.

    Since my first InMoov has escaped, a new head and neck were printed with PETG filament using the Prusa I3 MK3S 3D printer.

      Young Maria’s face reflects her pleasant personality with naive innocence.

      The old missing InMoov head was printed with PLA. I like the new Prusa White and Jet Black PETG filaments. The prints are more uniform and stronger with very consistent color between rolls. The 0.15 mm layer height is a good balance bet…[Read more]

    Quarantine Violation – InMoov Has Escaped.

    InMoov in disguise believes no will notice an escape from quarantine.

    The 6 volt, 12 amp-hour, battery allows InMoov to be quite mobile. The Raspberry Pi 3 and the USB WiFi allow InMoov to be autonomous. InMoov just needs to occasionally find a battery charger.

    • Hello Zurczurc,

      The legs are a very difficult part to make.
      They need to be strong, lightweight and fast.
      There is also the issue of balance which is also very difficult.
      Gael has released the static legs and they do hold the robot up.
      Just a note, in order to achieve the strength required to support the rest of the robot, some of the components…[Read more]

    • In the list of modified parts there are my contributions. At the moment the money is tight, but I will see more calmly, I am very good in hardware but not in mechanics.

      • I understand the mechanics, but are not very good in the cad design.
        Within the static legs that Gael has created, he has re-used parts from his early prototypes of a motorized version.

      What dimensions?
      I use a Cocoon Create Touch 200 x 200 x 180 or a Creality CR10S5, 500 x 500 x 500

      • I use ultimaker 2+ with 223x223x205mm.

        • Did you use PLA, ABS, PETG?
          each has their own benefits and problems
          PLA is easy to print, but harder to join and not as good in elevated temperatures.
          ABS is cheap and very easy to join parts, but can be more challenging to print with due to warping.
          PETG is easy to print, good at higher temps, but I do not know about joining at this stage and…[Read more]

          • Hi
            Yes i use PLA and ABS. I prefer use PLA for the esthetic. But, i have difficut to make the Neckpiston gear in the Neckpiston . I have used Pla and Abs and have always the same difficult to make in the Neckpistion the piston. Have you an idea why i can’t?

            • The simple answer is, Its a hard set of parts to print, and gives the most people a hard time.
              So your not alone.
              The most common suggestion is to reduce the pistonbase by around 3% in the X and Y axis only using the slicer.
              Some have reported that this works while others still have trouble.

    • Looking good. It makes me realise just how much work I still have to do.

      • Yes Steve, and the true work seems to start on the soft(ware) part. I decided to use Arduino shields, a Raspberry PI4 with Node Red and Serial Communication via USB to connect both platforms – boy this is really challenging my software development skills. But its fun – and I consider it a marathon.

    Turns out the Inmoov robot is taller than me 🙂

    • Love the red. I’m enjoying your videos on the static leg assembly. I’m interested in the sizes and quantities of any nuts and bolts used.

      • Hello Steve,

        The following quantities are for each leg, so you will need to double them for both legs.
        1 x M8 x 125 mm and 1 x M8 x 95 mm long for each knee.

        • Connecting the knee to the Tibia I have used 3 x M4 x 40 mm long with the head of one flattened to allow it to sit flush against the front wall of the Tibia when facing up.
          Theses could have been 25 mm long, however only had 20 mm and 40 mm long on hand.
          As it turns out the middle of those three is convenient to tie back to the small trolley I…[Read more]

          • Connecting the Knee to the Thigh I used 3 x M4 x 20 mm long nut and bolts, with the nuts being plastic welded into the knee joint.

            On the back side is the locking part that has 2 x M5 X 40 mm long countersunk.
            The nuts were plastic welded into place.

      • Hello Steve,

        The last video in this series is scheduled to go live on Friday.
        Do you link it would be helpful if I include this list of parts in the description as well?

        • Yes as it will make it easier to find. The info will probably get lost in this forum as time passes.

          • Good news is, as a result of your request, I also went back to the last video, and added the parts list in the description of the Video.
            If one person asked, then there will be many other who will want to know as well 🙂

    2. Is it a mistake on the ‘Build yours’ instructions where it says you need 2x PivPetentioRound or PivPotentioSquare? for one shoulder I think you only need 1 (not 2).

    • You do need two, one for the shoulder rotator and one for the omo…. forgot the name of it, but it lifts the shoulder up using a piston while the shoulder rotate is done with a worm drive like the bicep rotator

      • Yes, but that’s a different part. For the Omniplate we use PivPotHolder, not PivPotentio. Don’t we?

        • Yeah, you may be correct….
          Maybe Gael assumes you will forget to print it again when you print the left shoulder or that you will break one ?

          • Ah, I think I see where there is some confusion. Gael shoulder tutorial actually seems to cover some of the bicep parts. So we use PivPotentio in both the pivot of the shoulder and the rotation of the bicep.

  • Since the last video generated some interest in my build of the InMoov robot (Fred) I thought I would pull off one of his arms and give you a look inside.

    • Great job Ray. The print look outstanding.

      • And that was done with what was then a very cheap CTC printer back in 2017.
        The printer also had errors in the calibration of the X and Y axis, so all joints had to be filed to make them fit.

        So even with a crappy print, you can still build a working Inmoov 🙂
