    Reinforced shoulder gearbox with Resin printed gears

    • That looks very nice.
      Make want to think about getting a resin printer 🙂
      All jokes aside, the fingers would look good with resin as well.

    • where to find the stl files

      • I will need to upload them to Thingiverse or something like that. Since I changed the worm gear you don’t need all the clearance around the old servo horn area which allowed me to reinforce that area substantially. I used the bearing sizes that you recommended in your post

  • Ai-je commandé un Nervo Board + Components sait combien de temps ça prend pour l’expédition ?

    Bonjour, je construis un Inmoov avec une réduction de 25%, quand pensez-vous?

    • Il faut penser à la taille des servomoteurs . J ai suivi les conseils de Gael est j ai réduit à 64% avec quelques modifications ( les STL sont sur mon site)
      En réduisant à 64% les servomoteurs du commerce s’adaptent parfaitement .

    • mon site pour les STL du petit INMOOV

      • Oui merci, j’avais fait la tête à 50% mais trop petit avec des vis de lunette et problème de taille des servos. Avec une réduction de 75% ma crainte était de trouver les billes et la j’ai trouvé des 4mm, pour les servos j’ai fais des slots intérieurs donc pas de problème.

      • Ton site est bien fournis en leçon super…j’ai installer Myrobotlab pas de problème par contre le téléchargement dans la Mega 2560 plein d’erreur je peut pas compiler en suivant la vidéo de Gael qui était très bien expliquer, je vais recommencer avec tes leçons et encore bon boulot

    • as tu le bon driver , si tu fais un essai avec un fichier exemple de Arduino cela fonctionne t il ?

      • Oui, j’ai trouver la réponse sur le forum francophone , merci encore j’avance…

        • Bonjour, un RASPBERRY 4 fait l’affaire ou non ? dans l’œil gauche j’ai mi une camera RPI 8 MEGA pixel, je voie que vous utilisé un Lattepanda pourquoi et quel modèle ? pour les servos quel conseille pouvez vous me donné…j’ai commander 2 cartes Nervo d’autre conseille…

          • j ‘ai abandonné le lattepanda , si tu veux utiliser toutes les fonctionnalitées de inmoov il n’est pas assez puissant. pour les servos j ‘ ai utilisé différents modèles de gotronic et chinois . Gael préconise les HK15298B. et pour les petits HKSCM9-6 de chez hobbyking

            • pour les hanches j’ ai modifié les fichiers de Gael pour utiliser les mêmes servos que sur le grand InMoov Hitec HS805BB ou autres , (a cause du poids)

            • Bonjour merci pour tes réponses, pourtant 2 servos pour les hanches…
              Donc je vais tenter avec le raspberry 4 avec 8 go de ram et un écran tactile de 7 pouces pour commencé…, j’ai reçu mes 2 cartes Nervo.

            • Je vais regarder chez Gotronic pour les servos merci encore, j’ai l’impression que le site ou forum c’est arrêté en 2018 pas beaucoup de poste récent ?

      • Bonjour mon problème est le suivant : J’arrive a téléverser le programme dans ma carte arduino , je voulais tester les programme s , je change le numéro du port COM dans le programme comme stipulé sur la procédure , mais quand je lance MRL, tout le programme MRL se ferme.

    Hi, i am new, i would like to start building the hed but i don´t know if i could use only SG90 servos for eyes and head.

    • There are 2 or three sizes of servo used in the head depending on the version you are building.
      The Official version uses a HS-805BB for the turning left/right as well as a MG996R for the Jaw or equivalent.
      It’s been a while, but I think it also uses 2 x SG90 servos for the eye movement’s

    Hi, I\’m having trouble with the neck pistons. I have recalibrated the printer several times, sanded the pieces etc. yet they don\’t fit. Does anyone else have this problem or would he be able to give me some other advice?

    • I found with mine, there is a setting in the slicer called Horizontal expansion.
      Setting this to -0.15 in my case solved all this problem and the calibration parts fit together nicely.
      This setting can vary from printer to printer and even between slicers.
      The setting of -0.15 works in my Cura slicer, while -0.10 works best in S3D on the same printer.

      • I did the same -0.15 worked for me , tried a few settings till it fit nice without any wobble

    • -0.15 Worked for me as well using Cura slicer and printing on Ender 3 V2.

    Hi everybody,
    After having realized the inmoov few yers ago, I launch out in myself some modifications, replacement of the big too noisy and too slow servos by personal realizations, remolding of the head, to have a face in latex with expressions, and other modifications in progress such as recalculating the balance to try to make it…[Read more]

  • I am finishing up on the right arm. I had the Clavi servo (for the lateral lift) working perfectly but then it burned out. I am not sure why yet. I ordered a replacement servo.

  • In this video I continue in building the new stand for Fred\’s head.
    To make a stable stand, I\’m using the upper part of a standard Inmoov torso and using a bust set of parts I was shown on Thingiverse, we now have a stable base.

    Does anyone have any instructions on mounting the Hall Sensors and magnets in the fingers and thumb? Also does the current .stl support the sensor and magnet, or is there new .stl I can download?
    Thanks for anyones help.

    • Hi there
      as I understood it
      Gael designed a new hand for the hallsensors, but it has not yet been uploaded to the website for download. I have the same problem that I cannot process the hall sensors. I do not know whether the current fingertips can be used for the hall sensors.
      greetings norbert

      • Hi Gael…
        Would you be able to send me the STL’s for the new fingers using the hallsensors and some instructions on how and where to install the sensor and magnet?

    • 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.
