Received my Neuro Boards today! Thank you Gael! One question, what type of solder is recommended / needed?
Just ordered a Nervo Board (with and w/out components). Will I get a shipping email with tracking once shipped?

Is that to say that Neuro boards will be available again in Sept?

Anyone know where I can get the servo board? I’ve completed the right forearm and hand and I’d like to wire it up and give it a try!
Thanks Wilco! I live in the US, but I’m fortunate enough to have an ACE Hardware store nearby that sells metric hardware. I think knowing that most of the holes are 3mm helps as then I just need to find the correct length that will work.
Now, if only there were a way to speed up the print times… I’ve got the right hand and forearm almost…[Read more]
Your welcome Timothy, and trust me i know the feeling. Printing alwayas takes too much time, get ready for the legs, they are pretty awesome to print….
most times M3 x 30 will work, some have to be shorter, M3 x 10 and M3 x 20 but with the M3 x 30 you will have most luck. And beware that the heads of the screws need to be taper, like in the…[Read more]
Can someone point me in the direction of a complete hardware list? I’d really like to have a spreadsheet with not only a list of the printed parts, but the electronics and hardware (nuts and bolts, etc) needed.
Default Hardware Map + BOM
The nuts and bolts isnt by numbers, its mostly whats available in hardware stores near you , and also most holes in the inmoov are 3mm, but again its what you can find. 3.5 will work also, the us system i dont know, but you can convert them quite easily. if needed just redrill the holes a bit bigger. most…[Read more]

Can someone suggest an alternative to the 3mm filament for the pins on the hand? My filament is 1.75mm and hate to buy a roll of 3 mm just for this. Thanks!
Here’s an alternative approach:
Hi Timothy, if you are in the UK I can post you some? regards, Lorn
…or, if you want to stick with the original design then you could try this:
I had the same ‘problem’.
Solution, print some 3mm rods and use those. A 100mm rod will do a hand I think. Insert into the joint and trim. Or print them individually.
Forgot I had these made up https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2531839
Made these a while ago and just uploaded them,,,, I thought it be handy to have a set of printable Finger Pins,,,
I assume any builder with 3mm filament will be glad to send you a stretch that is long enough for the fingers. post your snake mail address – postage might be the cost factor!
I used 3mm line trimmer line from the hardware. its cheap and works well
That’s a great idea,,,,, I found knitting Needles in the $2 Shop,,,which are 2.8mm and $2.50 a set,,,, I didn’t even think of pulling a bit of cord off my whipper snipper,,,, lol
Oh Yeah that’s right,,, I kept with the Knitting Needles because of the Type of Plastic—It’s Extremely hard you can use on Micro Lathe or Drill Press for Shaping ( not just for finger pins) I’m 99% sure it’s Acetate plastic,,,,
Like Ray said , I bought trimmer line used in a weedeater and it worked really well

Hello everyone! I have started my InMoov build but am extremely new to all of this. I printed the parts for the right hand, but due to an issue with my printer they came out with some strings / webs. Now I have to sand them down / clean them up. Thinking of switching from PLA to ABS due to the easier cleanup ( I could just wipe it with Acetone vs…[Read more]
reduce your printing temp in 5 degree steps until the web disappears. I do not recommend switching to ABS, that is not your solution. ABS stinks and is harder to print.
