    Question to Gael or others

    Are there any plans for Inmoov or others to sell silicon masks for the characters

    Are there any plans for Inmoove or others to make and sell the silicon masks for the Inmoov head 2?

    Hello friends! I hope you´re all well. Now i´m on the Head I2 and there is a little question: Is there a short version of \”JawPistonV1NoSupport.stl\” available like shown in the trutorial? Can´t find it in the library on thingverse

    Tank you for your help

  • i have been working on this for sometime now and have asked many questions . NOW i am confused and perplexed. i need some detailed. explanation- or VIDEO to show me how to use. myrobotlab with inmoov. nervo boards , arduino and software. all three are not working for me. can someone point me to a very detailed video or document.

    Hello sir, I am new to printing the inmoov, unfortunately I cannot write English so I have to translate it. If you do not understand something, I try to formulate it differently. I am from the Netherlands and am 50 years old. I saw half an inmoov on a marketplace and was right. in love, I had to have this one and finish it, can you remember that a…[Read more]

    • 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 .

    • Try the build yours section, You’ll find great tutorials on what to do.
      For start , you need a 3D printer which can prints elements as big as 13cm*13cm*13cm if you wont to include the legs .

  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.

      • Hi Gael,
        Many thanks for your reply, that clears that one up for us. My son will be doing the coding and he would like to know:
        Any particular reason why the use of Arduino and not Raspberry Pi?
        Thanks again.

  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 son and i built that cool robot. we started with the right hand. Now we start printing the parts for the second hand.
    thanks for the designer of in moov to create such cool robot.

  9. 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.

  10. 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

  11. Bonjour,
    je suis tout nouveau et quand je vois vos réalisations j’ai vraiment hâte
    de recevoir mon imprimante et de commencer.
    Pour le moment je me familiarise avec myrobotlab.
    A très bientôt

  12. Bonjour à tous,

    j’ai les premières pièces de mon inmoov qui ne s’emboîtent pas 🤨
    avez vous une idée sur un réglage de l’imprimante ou logiciel.
    je parle du calibrator.stl
    Bien cordialement

  13. 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,

  14. 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,

  15. 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

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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!


  19. 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.

  20. Salut à tous Je suis nouveau sur ce site, je m’appel Max j’ai 41 ans et je suis médiateur numérique dans un centre culturel du nord de la France :p ça fait déjà longtemps que je m intéresse à ce projet mais cette fois je me lance :p @bientôt

  21. Hi fellow mad robot scientists. Just printed all parts of the head and neck. I can’t wait to see how this turns out. I think it will be awesome.
    Just saying hi to everyone and thank you to Gael for the visionary development. This should be very exciting.

    I am new here and wanting to get started. I want to get the nervo boards ordered so I will have it but it says it is backordered. Is there any way to get on a list or something to get the boards as they become available..Other than checking daily, I see no way to know when or get one…….

  23. Hi everyone I am new on here.
    I am starting with the right hand v2.
    I am looking for the instructions or a tutorial on how to build the servos into the palm…
    I will make one if I cannot find one I guess.

  24. Hey guys I decided to take the step and try and build this bot. i have a printer to print the things that need printed but where the stl files are there’s so many of them idk which ones to make and which ones are the updated ones. also is there a list of servos etc. ill need? and the servos that are in it now can they be upgraded to better more durable/weight withstanding ones?

  25. Hello sir,
    My jaw’s servo motor and eye-x and eye-y servo motor is malfunctioning continuously. I changed servo motor 5/6 times. Every time it works for 5-10 minutes and it is not working. I am using sg90 servo, I have tried MG90 servo motor as well.
    So can you assist me in this problem? or can I want to add resistor in nervo boards of eye/mouth. (I am using 10V 20Amp Power supply)

  26. Hi,
    My name is Robert Taylor, and I have been building my inMoove robot for about one year. I have been posting all my photos on the Albums part of this forum. For some reason I do not see my name as a member of this forum!? Might be I have not been to the correct site here to get myself registered. Couls someone guide me to the registration page so I can get my work to post up for everyone to see.

    Thank you,
    Rob Taylor

  27. Bonjour,

    Je me présente. Je m’appelle Hervé et j’habite à une 20aine de km au sud de Paris. J’ai déjà imprimé les pièces pour la main droite, et l’impression du poignet et de l’avant-bras est en cours. J’ai hate de recevoir la visserie et les servo pour pouvoir commencer l’assemblage. Je fournirai des photos dès que j’aurais quelque chose de présentable.

    N’hésitez pas à me contacter pour me donner des conseils 🙂

  28. Hi all, Im currently building the V2 Head and have just printed off the eyes, however I cannot find a tutorial or assembly instructions for the V2 Eyes (they are individual units, Left and Right) is there anyone who knows where to find them?
    Thank you!!!
