Well done Michael, it’s really coming along. Most importantly from your smile you are enjoying the journey. Does your InMoov have a name ?
Bravo Leboucher, tres bon plan
Well done Gerard, it looks as if you are advancing well, I agree with Michael Wharton the colour combination works very well.
Thx Michael Hayward ! Yes feeling doing good progress and happy to see you all like the look&feel. I will post more photos as I do some progress on album. Can’t wait to see fully finished and working and apply some AI to perform some tasks 🙂

Hi Juerg, Many thanks, really appreciated. I will go through more thought process. well done and many thanks for pathfinding with the Realsense. I believe that in time this will become the optimal solution over the Orbbec or the Kinnect.
Hi all, how are you getting on Juerg? I was just looking at the Intel offer “RealSense™ Depth Camera D435 and Tracking Camera T265 bundled together for one great price, and get started with your next project today”
And am feeling I am going to go for it. But really thinking how can I integrate the D435 without ruining the look. I was thinking hig…[Read more]
Thought about the location too. I need to see the path my cart is moving on and first thought of mounting the cam on my cart. It would look nicer instead of the head location but the flexibility of the head makes is much more usable. From the picture you can see that the device is partially covered by the hat and it can be removed if needed. I…[Read more]
as a second thought: before you purchase the T265 make sure you understand how you can implement your odometry for the device. I read through the article and had no idea at the end of how I would have to accomplished this. My cart uses an encoder attached to one of its wheels and produces around 3 ticks per mm of robot movement.
Welcome back Gerard, have a great summer printing and InMooving
Hi Marcia, Sorry for delay in answering, been busy on other things. at the moment I have decided to have 1 regular and 1 infra red, but not chosen the infra red solution yet. What are you going with ?
Michael Hayward posted a new activity comment 1 year, 4 months ago
Hi Marcia, the PIR to identify if someone is in front of your InMoov, but PIRs canhave different ranges up to 12 meters, depends on your choice if use.
Same with Kinect or Orbbec Astra (I think I will go with an Orbbec product)
On NeoPixel it is the ring but be careful on what size to get.
Use a 16 Neopixel ring from Adafruit or elsewhere.
Neopixel diagram & configuration
Hi Gael, WHICH Nano board should I purchase for this application? There seem to be more than one to choose from at Arduino.
Hello, this one:
Hi Marcia, yes I found instructions on the web of how to remove the casing. Everyone appears to do something different. I am thinking two either 1 regular + 1 infra red or 1 telephoto and 1 wide angle
Which combination do you think is best? 1 regular + 1 infra red or 1 telephoto and 1 wide angle?
It is in one of the tutorials how to make them. It is not shop bought, from what I remember just two pieces of metal cut to size
Hi Marcia, I started with M3 and M4 hex bolts and nuts, then when the need arose I got other ones, M2 for eyes I think. You end up with a nice collection of various lengths.
I think the flat cable is just 14 strand with one side marked red.
Hi Marcia, Welcome and brilliant that you made the decision.
I use Wanhao D6 and a D6+ printing only in ABS.
Theres a great community to accompany you. Good Luck
Thank you! Appreciate the response! I am sure I will have many questions.

Hello World, Today is a good day 100% of the head printed and overall 30% of “Jeeves” InMoov is printed. Dry assembly and insertion of Microsoft LifeCam Studio V2 in right eye. Next week starts the challenge of soldering the NervoBoards and assembly while continuing printing the rest of the body.
Have a great weekend everyone!
Hey great progress Michael!
That little stand is handy for working on the head.
If you have any questions regarding the Nervo Board, just ask…

Hi Chuah Wei Jie, I am only printing in ABS-X, sorry my 3D printing knowledge and experience is insufficient to be able to help. Maybe someone else with more experience can help.
My first parts were printed at .24 and didn’t fit so well. I then printed at .15 and they all fit together nicely. Also looked a lot better as finished product.
Bravo Jacques, une photo bientôt?
For the rectangular hole I sanded a tiny bit on the bits that fit in. For the rest I only took off bits that should not be there, it was a (very) tight fit.
Still trying on different calibration, and it still doesn’t fit. I’m using PLA and the calibrator like always exceeding less than 1mm? Not really sure about that. Is the wall thickness that affect the printing exceeding the original scale?
sorry Chuah Wei Jie, I meant to say in my album.
Thanks Michael ! I’ll try for both configuration during the printing process.
Hi Chuah Wei Jie, I have loaded the setting I am using in CURA for my ABS-X, different but they more or less work for me. With each printer and each print material they will be different. big difference I chose to print in 0.1
Have a good day
Many thanks Richard, much appreciated, much printing to go.
Great news! good luck Chuah Wei Jie! it is a great journey you are embarking upon. Unfortunately I do not know enough on Anet A8 to help you. But Cura works well for me.
Hi Michael ! I believe it will be. Actually I’m using Cura for the printing too. the thing that I wonder is that I’m not sure the setting of the Basic and Advanced column will provide a good printing result or not. I had uploaded my setting interface in my album. What do you think?
Covie is brilliant! And you and your team has done brilliantly to build it so quickly. Good luck on the next stage, and as you say it will never be finished… as it is a journey of discovery and co-working and not a destination.
Thanks Michael! Wonderful hearing from fellow InMoov enthusiasts….our Makerbot replicator has been printing non stop about 15 hours a day six days a week for the past five months….InMoov is the gift that keeps on giving, to students and teachers alike.
I like your InMoov sticker/card with logo + did you print all your InMoov on your Wanhao D3?
Hi Michael, yep, I have a couple of Wanhao D3’s and it’s all printed by them. They’re different generations (I forget which version numbers they are, one is an early variant, before they introduced the power supply with the angled screen), They have all the usual community modifications, like the AZZA braces etc. The printer on the right of the…[Read more]

Dear InMoov world,
A quick update from a chilly Jeeves InMoov, the last snows are melting at my workshop in France.
Like many, my InMoov journey has been a bit stop start, but now both printers are printing as fast as they can so that I can say “Hello world” as soon as possible.
Wherever you are in the world have a good day, a great weekend and…[Read more]
Wow Michael – I love your D6 setup! Looking forward to seeing what you create. Good luck with the build!
Beautiful workshop, by the way! 😀
Hi Peter, Many thanks, very much appreciated.
Hi Doc Johnson, very much appreciated, I know what to do now. Many thanks
Always glad to assist. Have a great Day!
WOW, I just saw that we are 6,001 Members worldwide, another level has been reached.
what great news that the community keeps on growing!
agreed, can’t wait to see some inmoov meetups, chatting to each other
Well, there was a long list of members waiting for approval. Checking them all today made the number of members increase in a short delay.
New members to be approved must have a InMoov picture for their profile picture. (can be anything as long as it’s an InMoov part).
It will save me time when approving members.
Thanks and welcome to all new members!!
Well done, very impressive, which eyes and eye lids did you use? plus lots of other questions, such as do you notice any noise reduction from the servos?
Hi Doc Johnson, that is great news, many thanks.
I have found a couple of sites where they show you how to strip down the camera to remove the case etc. do you have any guidance on the mods that would be required? or even (pushing my luck) some pictures?
Michael Hayward posted a new activity comment 1 year, 6 months ago
Well done looks great!
Michael Hayward posted an update 1 year, 6 months ago
Has anyone integrated “Microsoft LifeCam Studio V2” web cam into the eyes?
Yes, it requires some mods, but it works well. Microphone is not very responsive inside the head, the the video is good.
You have great timing; I was just getting ready to install my EZB Camera in the other eye, so I had the assy apart. I took some photos; keep in mind, I just did this as a quick and easy setup; if you think about it, you can do a much cleaner job than I did. Photos are in my album area

I like your positive attitude, it is better to try and fail than to not try at all. Each failure is a sucess because we learn from it. We change our hipothesis move forward and try again.
In terms of holding a spoon or fork, there are adapters that can slide onto a finger even an inmoov finger
I will see what I can find.
Good luck with…[Read more]

Is anyone from the InMoov community going to the London Science Museum saturday 24th June? I am attending the \”Talk: How to make a robot + private tour of Robots exhibition\” starts at 8:30 to 14:00
I went a few weeks back, it was really good. Did you have a good time?
Michael Hayward posted a new activity comment 3 years, 9 months ago
WOW this and the previous post are GREAT, what software are you using?
i think its in sketchup
Michael Hayward posted a new activity comment 4 years ago
He does, thank you, and his own exclusive 3d printer.
I will have to learn to be patient! 3d printing is slow!
Oh man this will be the first InMoov to have his own house!!
Michael Hayward posted an update 4 years ago
Lol part of the preparation was making sure, I was sufficiently motivated to continue to the end, then the construction of a little workshop in the garden for building InMoov and buying equipment etc.
I think you mean: InMoov gets his own house in the garden ? 🙂
Enjoy your InMoov build!
After month’s of preparation, the first print, 24th September 2016 what a great day!
Hello Michael! A finger in the Wanhao! That’s for sure it’s at least a month of preparation.
What will you do next month?
Just kidding, hey!
Thanks for sharing your enthousiasm.
