• After the cyclone induced demise of Amos MK1, here is the progress on Amos MK2.

  • this is a video of Amy doing a demonstration for a coding club a while back.

  • I originally struggled with an UP plus 2 printer in my first attempt…no offence to up owners but with my Zortrax M200 this time around has been an absolute delight. Everything fits perfectly first time. Thanks Gael for all the upgrades to the head! The encapsulated nuts for joining the skull sections work a treat, and the eye mechanism has…[Read more]

  • Rebuild of Amos….using new parts ..

  • random head and eye movement.

  • Repaired finally after some serious damage in a cyclone last year.

  • Printing another InMoov, because the original is going to stay home. It is a precious robot now!
    Having a second printer makes it fast, specially because I updated the firmware to Sailfish on the CTC printer.
    I used to print on Kapton with the ABS but finally got to print directly on glass which is giving a super result and surprisingly absolutely…[Read more]

  • My printer is out of work for a moment… Gee what a smell, if you ever get your heated bed that burns out, you need to ventilate your workspace!! It took me a while to find a heated bed this size in Europe . 300x200mm. I finally ordered the PCB in Danemark.

    • wouaaa it is hotttt lol

    • Uhh, Uhh, my printer manufacturer had changed his print bed product line to make it almost impossible to overheat it (you could fiddle with the control SW however).
      I assume some workshops could run into serious problems having the printbed burning through.
      Think about switching to PLA-HT (or HT-PLA) which is as good as ABS but prints on a 50…[Read more]

      • @Geal I guess it’s beause your heating bed’s temperature sensor have loose from your heating bed!! I suggest you check complete all your 3D printer’s switch, sensors to prevent this happen again…

    i find this articulation interesting

    • no idea, what is this good for?

      • @Juerg, I’m guessing Amby sees it for the torso and stomach displacements.
        The two armonics drive must be for the shoulders. Though when you know how much an armonic drive cost, you back off a little. 🙂
        @Amby, yes, it is on that U-joint principle that I had designed the stomach rotations.

  • Because it is also been a very long time that I wanted to inverse the InMoov logo on the hand, this has been the occasion to clean up those parts.
    Check now for the version V6 of the…[Read more]

  • Hey I just fused under Blender my recent modified TopMouth and LowBack. Rotated at 45° on the Z axe and they actually still fit in the correct 12cm3 build area !!

    So now TopMouth and LowBack are permanently fused on the InMoov website. and can be screwed instead of being glued.
    Make sure to get the V3 version on InMoov.fr.
    I didn’t update my…[Read more]

    • This is awesome! The 2 topmouth pieces have always been kind of a pain to work with, so that will help alot.

      • Yes indeed, I also did a reprint with fused topmouth after coming back from India, the head had been damaged in the suitcase during flight travel. It is much easier to assemble now.

  • Well it took me a while but it is done!

    New builders will have a lot more fun to assemble the skull now. I have set screw and bolts holders in various parts to make the last fit much easier.
    You can use 3mm screws and bolts to attach the parts together.
    I modified:

    my robot with plateform

    • Very good progress Amby with your robot! Is the wheel platform large enough to keep the robot in balance when you drive it around?

    • hello gael thank you yes the wheels plateform is enough for balance
      all is ok with my prototype cardboard so now i start to build in wood

    I\’m in the process to make a very small remote transmitter which could be held within the palm.

    • Thanks Gael, now I see how it all works. I like how you can detach the drive wheel to push it around manually. See my comments on Sebastiens’s post.

    • @Bob, to answer your previous questions on Sebastien’s post:
      The base can carry InMoov easily. You can add at least 10kg and the base can still ride fine as long as the floor is flat.
      When I use InMoov in the street, the wheels can overcome some holes if it rides full speed. If you look at my video, you can see a battery carrier between the two…[Read more]

    Airwin InMoov driven with a wireless PS2 gamepad

    • I like your drive system. Can you share some details about the components you used to build it – motors, servos?

      • Thank you Bob, this InMoov plateform is widely inspired from the one Gael made. My components are coming from old broken stuff to make it low cost as it is a temporary solution waiting for legs :-).

        The arduino uno that manage the inmoov neopixel ring is now also used to read commands coming from a wireless PS2 Gamepad ( thanks to Bill Porter…[Read more]

      • Sebastien and Gael, Thanks for sharing the details on your bases. They are very simple and efficient. How much weight can the base carry/move around. Gael, yes, EZ Robot can do the voice controls as well. I can run my drive motors with Voice command, or manually on the computer or mobile app. I’m looking at building a lighter base like this but…[Read more]

    hello everybody i build a plateform for inmoov it is a very easy plateform very cheaper
    it is my first prototype in card board so if some people are interested i can send you plans

    • Nice work! It is amazing what you do with cardboard ! Can you share some information about the motors you used?

    • Amby the King of Cardboard!
      As I commented on your post on MyRobotLab, you could make Thingy on Thingiverse with the DXF and all informations of the motors, wheels and sources. Some builders could reproduce it in PVC or plexiglas.

      • hello gael yes of course a can give everybody plans for built it this plateform very cheap but in first i builf in cardboard for prototype and when all is ok i give plans and informations

    Just to share with you the very first wheel spin of Airwin this night. I hope the small motor coming from an old electric Kids Toy will not soon burn.

  • Waaaoooo release of the MidStomach parts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It’s been asked so many times, that even though you will have to re-print all these parts when the legs will be released, that I decided to upload those parts anyway.

  • Hi everyone!
    I uploaded all parts for the new eye mecanism inspired by Mats Onnerby and Bob Houston. The mecanism is more sturdy and gives wider degrees of rotation for the eyes.
    I created files that are simple to print with no support besides for EyeSupport and they require no modifications of EyeGlass (Face). Also I managed to use the same…[Read more]

  • Last night InMoov had something of a Picasso painting…
    Modifying the eye mecanism to adapt a mix of Mat and Bob to be able to use my previous face design along with the Hercules camera and the DS929HV servos.

    • OOOhhhh Yes,

      This is very good news Gael 🙂
      I will soon start printing the head, so your update is just on time 😉

      This week I will receive my new _XT filament from ColorFabb.
      I hope it’s a good filament to use for most InMoov parts, even for the shoulder mechanical parts.

      Other question about the camera, are you still happy with your…[Read more]

      • Well the hercules HD does a good job as far as what I do with it. But as I said it would be ideal to have a board for post processing things like tracking, face tracking, object color detections to let the computer do other tasks.
        The Pixy camera would be great but it is mounted on such a big board…

        • I will wait for this camera: https://openmv.io/
          Leon has ordered them via kickstarter 🙂
          This has the same results and is smaller !
          I hope the price is the same like the Pixy cam.

          The Pixy already used a 4-layer PCB, so it would be a hard work to make this smaller 🙂
          Option is to ask for a sort camera-shield mount option.

          • I use the raspberry PI camera in one of the eyes of the modified head. It’s much better quality than a USB 2.0 camera. And the intention is to use the Rpi to do image processing. You can even find a really small version of the camera. https://www.pi-supply.com/product/adafruit-spy-camera-raspberry-pi/

          • @Marten, As you mention in private message the OpenMV could be a nice option because it is python based and Open source which could be easily added to MyRobotlab with no need to use an extra Rpi.
            @Mats, I personnaly would rather a smaller device than having to use a Rpi for the image processing, because with the tests I did using the Rpi the fps…[Read more]

      This looks awesome dude, great work and a cool upgrade to the InMoov !

      I can’t wait to see some more video’s with the Eye tracking options 🙂

      • just WAHOOOO

        • Good idea, Gael, about an adjustment to prevent cross eyes. I have designed a new part that will allow for that adjustment. I have added it to the STL’s on Thingiverse.

          • Ah perfect! Hey but you can add comments? So it works now for you the community?

            • Hmmm, that’s strange that it shows up here but I can’t see my comment on the main Community page

    • bonjour tout le monde!
      est ce que bob Houston pourrait faire partager a la communauté inmoov les plans et les fichiers stl de son châssis et la colonne sur roue qu’on voit sur la vidéo youtube?

    Hello guys,
    Here are some more pictures of the new back for InMoov. It integrates a ThinkPad Tablet 8″ which can be replaced with other tablets fitting the same width size specs. A clip on, printed mechanism, makes it easy to insert or remove.
    Access to the two Arduino Mega and the Nervo Boards is easy once the tablet is removed.
    Access to the…[Read more]

    • Sorry for posting so fast Just got excited when I saw the pictures from your trip you posted, when do you think you will release them?

      • I got totally excited myself when finally I could mount them on my InMoov.
        Yes I will release them. A few little things to modify, specially where the clavi potentiometer rotates, and also the battery holder needs to go a little lower to let access to the power cable of the Tablet.

    • That is a really nice back. Looks good and will protect all the electronics and hide some of the servos.
