    Hello how are you, I wanted to ask if someone could tell me where to download the functional inmoov software, sorry for my bad English, and if this is not the place to ask. Thank you

  • I just wanted to post my build link for those that want to check it out.

    Hello, I need help, I have a problem, I have soldered all the pins of the nervoboard, but when I connect the nervo to the arduino mega to my computer, the script to put all the servos of the hand except the one of the wrist does nothing. The impression that the order is not transmitted, do I need a power supply other than USB? Does anyone see…[Read more]

    • Hi.
      Yes, you need an additional power supply for the servos. I suppose the current would fry your arduino.
      I reused a 5V power adapter. I soldered a XT60 male adapter to the nervo board and a XT60 female adapter to the cable of the power.adapter: This way I am able to take away the current if my servos develop a life of their own.

    Will the 10kohm 8 pin work for the time being until I can come across the 100kohm. I thought that I bought the 100kohm 8 pin but when I start it turns out to be the 10kohm.

    Hello everyone 🙂

    this is an absolutely amazing project. I am very thankful that this is available as an open source project.

    I’m still at the beginning of building an InMoov. Regarding the walking of robots on two legs, the law of centrifugal force came to mind.

    • Hello Andreas! Welcome to this big project. We are here to help each other. It is a pleasure to know you. Add some pictures of your project during the assembly in your album. I like to see all the different versions of inMoov robot.

      • This project is very big and in every detail I can see, which problem stands in focus. So I think, I’ll build the InMoov first like the handouts/plans here.
        For now, I’m an absolutly Noob and will learn many new stuff.

    Currently I am trying to decide how to power the robot I may just use a 6V 12ah lead acid battery. I would love to hear comments about power supply options.

      Hello @smiller29, it is very easy to post videos because you only have to copy the link but not with the images, to put an image you have to enter your profile, the first thing that comes out is to publish a post, well at the bottom right there are 3 options click on the image and you can put the link of the photo or upload it from the gallery 🙂

    • Have a look here:


      • Hi @ray-edgley, thank you very much for answering me, I don’t know if maybe you managed to create the arm, but we use 2 types of sensors, which can be the foam one with 2 connectors, the normal one, and the recommended hall sensor, which has 3 cables, and in the tutorial I don’t explains how to put the hall sensor.

      • Hi @ray-edgley, if you are making the arm this is very important! @admin is going to create a new version of the arm due to my question about the hall sensor which was the previous answer 🙂

    • There are a number of servos out there, most of which haven’t been tested by builders.
      I have found the PDI-6221MG servos 20Kg to be great, but they are a standard size servo, so smaller than the Hitec HS805BB and slightly less torque which is around 23Kg

    • That would be extremely expensive for someone to do for you and time consuming, it would be cheaper for you to buy something like a Creality Ender 3 or similar. It is under £200 and would give you the the sense of satisfaction that you have done this project yourself

      • Ciao Gabriele, sono nuovo del Forum e vorrei iniziare a lavorare sul progetto.
        Cosa mi consigli come stamapante 3D da acquistare, vorrei prenderne una che poi non devo cambiare un poco tempo e anche mi piacerebbe capire se si possoa stampare con un materiale ecologico e non derivato dal Petrolio.
        Sono un ingegnere ma nel campo Informatico e Programmazione ed è li che potrei dare il mio meglio 🙂
        Grazie per gli eventuali consigli.

        • Ciao Maurizio scusami per il ritardo della risposta ma sono stato assente dalla community per tanto tempo ( il lavoro mi assorbe totalmente ), ho ripreso in mano il progetto in questi giorni ed eccomi di nuovo qui, spero nel frattempo tu abbia risolto con la stampante .
          Ti dico come ho fatto io diversi anni fa, ho comprato una stampante cinese ( Prusa 3d ) con scheda derivata da arduino mega 2560 e firmware Marlin, non soddisfatto della meccanica ( niente da dire al firmware ) è nato il desiderio di costruirmi una meccanica nuova in casa.
          Ho una piccola macchina laser 600×400 quindi mi sono disegnato una meccanica da tagliare in plexiglass da 5 mm di spessore ( va piu che bene ) ho preferito farla da 40×40 anzichè 20×20 come la cinese ed ho iniziato quindi a ordinare tutti i pezzi che la compongono, per farla breve in un paio di anni ne ho fatte una decina e vanno benissimo, a distanza di tempo e dopo diverse decine di kg di materiale usato la meccanica e perfetta come il primo giorno.
          Inoltre il software e Open Source e ho potuto personalizzarlo a mio piacimento aggiungendo anche un modulo wifi utilizzando un esp 8266 per gestirla direttamente da una pagina web ( anche questo software e Open Source si chiama esp3d.
          Se vuoi provare a cimentarti posso darti tutte le informazioni necessarie per costruirtela in casa girandoti l’esperienza che ho accumulato ormai da una ventina di anni con le macchine cnc, prima con pantografi 3/4/5 assi poi con le 3d.
          Scusami ancora se non ho risposto subito .

  1. Hi People,

    I wanted to build InMoov, but I have a few doubts and I need advice.
    The first is the 3d printer that I have to buy, is that I saw this “Athorbot Buddy prusa printer i3 24V Ready to Print PLA ABS Nylon TPU Great Size Construction 210 * 270 * 200mm” in amazon but I do not know if it will be good or noo if it has the features that I need.
    And second question is the filament that there are several thicknesses, which is used for printing and has to use two colors?
    Let’s see if I answer the questions, that the one I have now is the printer.

    Thank you so much.

    • The i3 Prusa are good printers, although it is not easy to print ABS on this type of machine because they are open case.
      But if you plan to print InMoov in PLA, it will be a great machine.
      The thickness of the filament depends of your printer’s extruder.

  2. Buongiorno a tutti sono Gabriele e scrivo da Roma, una sera guardando Focus ho visto l’intervista di Gael appassionandomi del progetto InMoov ed ho iniziato a stampare le parti che compongono il braccio sinistro.
    Disponendo di svariate Stampanti 3D ho accelerato i tempi e a distanza di pochi giorni ho l’avambraccio completo di polso e mano sinistra, da oggi inizio a montare i servo ecc ecc.
    Spero presto di poter postare le foto del lavoro che sto svolgendo grazie alla maestria di Gael nel fornirci i file necessari alla realizzazione ma sopratutto grazie alla sua disponibilità.
    Ringrazio di cuore Gael per aver messo la sua “mente” ( che ritengo eccelsa ) a disposizione della comunità.


    Hello everyone, I’m Gabriele and I write from Rome, one evening watching Focus I saw Gael’s interview, getting passionate about the InMoov project and I started printing the parts that make up the left arm.
    Having several 3D Printers I have accelerated the time and after a few days I have the forearm complete with wrist and left hand, from today I start to assemble the servos etc. etc.
    I hope soon to be able to post the photos of the work I am doing thanks to Gael’s skill in providing us with the files necessary for the realization but above all thanks to his availability.
    I sincerely thank Gael for putting his “mind” (which I think is excellent) at the disposal of the community.
    ps: I apologize for the bad English I translate with google translate


  3. Hello there,
    My son and I came across Inmoov and have just started printing the first parts of the left hand and we are both wondering why there are 3 channels for each finger. Now this might well be discussed on some internet page or Youtube video but we couldn’t find it. Please point us into the right direction.

  4. Gaël LANGEVIN… Um thats a Catch 22… I’m trying to “update my community profile picture” to an Inmoov pic like stated… Which it says you wont get approved without doing that… Yet it also wont let you change the photo without prior approval.

    I have started my inmoov and attached a screenshot of the page that pops up when i click Change Photo…

    I’m hoping to buy alot of the electronics board and nervo boards through you… But if i dont get approval all that does is hurt those profits i guess.

    Hope to get approval

  5. Bonjour

    Bonjour .
    Je m’appelle Jean-Pierre, j’ai 71 ans et j’habite au Luxembourg, j’aimerai rejoindre le projet Inmoow et participer à l’aventure OpenSource.
    Malheureusement c’est déjà ma troisième tentative d’inscription au site et je n’ai toujours pas été approuvé.

    • Hello and welcome,
      There is so many new printers coming on the market everyday, that I do not follow up.
      Make sure the size of your prints can be at least 13x13x13cm.
      If you plan to print the legs you should get a printer with a minimum of 15x15x15cm.

  6. Dear Gael
    Thanks for your brilliant innovations.
    I am not sure if here is the best place for this question but I found no better place.
    I have printed an inmoov without legs, and already bought the servos. As for the PCBs, I was curious if you have shipment to Iran ? and if yes, probably how long it can take?

    Long Live Inmoov!

    • Hello,
      We have never shipped to Iran yet.
      Is your postal service okay?
      Normal postage generally avoids taxes, but if we need to use something similar to DHL, the cost will be doubled compared to the price announced on InMoov shop page.

  7. Hi,
    Is it possible to animate a 3d version of the robot in Autodesk Maya or any other 3d program, and then send the animation curves to the real inmoov robot for playback?


  8. Hello

    My name is Brad Stein. I have been building robots for many years but never actually finished one completely because I kept coming up with a better idea. Now my better idea is to build a inmoov but he will be partially Inmoov and partially other robot parts.
    Thats why I am going to call him Franklin Stein.
    I Have the complete Head, Neck and torso printed so far. My printer was taking too long so I bought a second one.
    I plan on attaching him to a Mecanum Wheel base that I had already been working on. I think they will work well together.

    Thanks for the Inmoov Project and website Gael.

    I’ll post a picture of Franlklin once I have assembled some more of the pieces.

    • Actually I have finished a few but we all know they are never really finished.
      I picked a good time to sit at home and print parts.

      I have 2 Afinabot A9 printers(they also come with a Laser engraving head) going 24/7.

      I sure learned a lot about 3d printing in the last couple months.Like when it is -30 outside and someone opens a door your part is going to warp.

      I have been using PLA but want to try some ABS. I think I’ll build an enclosure for one of the printers and use that one for ABS.
      Got the Head, neck,torso,stomach and shoulders printed so far. I have all the electronics just waiting for a box of Giant servos to show up sometime today.

  9. Hello Dear Gael and everybody,

    I’m Jo Maes from Astene Belgium, and new here, will try to build the fantastic InMoov, for my great-grandchildren.

    It will be a Raise 3D printer, since we want to work with abs filament, but we are not yet sure whether it will be the 2 pro or the E2, which can print mirror images at the same time, but a slightly smaller size. Advice someone with this choice?

    As I’m retired, I have all the time, but a little afraid of the technical side of the story, given my age.
    Are there still Dutch speaking people here, forum? or other technically savvy people who are willing to provide any assistance.

    Best regards, Jo

  10. Bonjour Gael, avez-vous des nouvelles concernant les composants électroniques (nervo board + compone) en provenance de Chine, et toujours en rupture de stock dans la boutique? Une idée quand nous pouvons commander en retour?
    Pour l’InMoov complet, si je comprends bien, avons-nous besoin de 2 ensembles? Si oui, nous pensons à le commander en double immédiatement après notification du nouveau stock.
    Bien cordialement,

  11. Bonjour Tout le monde,

    Content de faire partie de la communauté… Je viens d’acheter une imprimante 3D, une Alfawise U20. Malheureusement il y a un petit soucis technique que je dois d’abord régler dessus avant de l’utiliser. Je n’arrive pas à faire chauffer le plateau et la buze, J’ai déjà changer la tête et la thermistance. Maintenant, je dois faire vérifier la carte mère cette semaine.

    Je suis impatient de commencer la construction de mon robot InMoov. Je n’ai jamais fait de tel projet, mais c’est un rêve de pouvoir le faire. J’espère que je pourrais avoir de bon échange avec des membres pour m’épauler.

    A très bientot,

  12. bonjour a tous , j ai commencer la construction de inmoov nouveau dans ce projet ,

    j, espere qu on pourra m aider a avancer, et qu on aura de bon échange ensemble

    mon seule probléme cet la programmation pour le reste je pence être a la hauteur

    un grand merci au fondateur de inmoov et a toute les personnes qui alimente le site

  13. Hi everyone. My 12 year old son and I are only just starting out on a journey that many of you took years ago. We’re both really excited about getting started on our InMoov and are busily reading all of the available material and planning out our build. Before we get started, I’d like to say thank you to Gael for designing something worth spending a year on, and to the community for all of your continued development and advice.

  14. Hi. I’m just starting on this venture using an Ender 3 . The calibrator is a perfect fit after an afternoon of setting up my printer properly (measuring the filament diameter, calibrating the extruder and X & Y axes and making sure my bed was level using an ABL system , another (previous) afternoon’s work). All that has paid off though. I have printed the Finger Starter, assembled it and got it working. Now I have finished printing the forearm, hand and fingers and everything fits together like a glove. Happy days and happier to come I hope.

  15. Hello! I am looking into this amazing project. What plastic or plastics would people recommend to use to build InMoov? I could use PLA, ABS, PETG (although hard to glue) nylons, TPUs … I would prefer not having to rebuild because I chose the wrong plastic.
    Thank you!


  16. Hi Guys!..

    What a nice project Gael!. I love it. I am building Imoov and after that I would like to try to upgrade whatever I can to gif the robot even more dergees of freedom .

    Can I ask a few questions?

    What kind of weight can de robot lift, Gael?
    What does the robot weigh?
    Can I get the clean CAD-files from you, Gael?

    Thanks guys!

    P.s. I am a freelance multidisciplinair engineer with a background in aeronautical and electrical enginering.

    I am always looking to help peoples with there technical builds. Do not hesitate to ask me anything.
