• I’ve decided to make new Wrist Gears to, so all the Finger-fishing lines are more in line with the servo’s !
    The Wrist servo will placed on the Finger servobed and with a axle it will be connected to the small Gear.
    When I’ve printed the Gears, I can start drawing the Servo part…
    Later I will share more pictures and if it works, I will share all…[Read more]

    • I wish that works, it’s a great Idea

      • Haha, my fingers are crossed 🙂

        The Wrist servo is blocking the complete way for all fishing-lines.
        With the servo placed on the servobed, it makes it full open.
        So this saves a lot of friction 🙂

        (printer is almost done with the last peace 🙂 )

    • Hello Marten. I came to that exact same conclusion last night while assembling my tendons. They have been very finicky and I am not confident the spring system will hold up. The wrist rotation really plays with the tensions and geometries. I was thinking of a system where the lines ran through the centerline of the wrist. The servo can be moved…[Read more]

  • I’ve updated the info (included a “How To” for my Finger_Starter kit V2:
    And here a video without the spring:

    • Awesome Marten… going to try these servo pulleys with my new inMoov I am currently building… good work man…

      • Thanks Richard,
        Mechanical way it looks good enough for me.
        These pulley’s will need the full 180 degrees from a servo !
        Make sure your servo’s supporting this 180 degree turn.

        My next step is to see, if the smaller servo’s are strong enough for the complete InMoov Hand !
        I hope to find some spare-time tomorrow, during my work… 🙂

    • Great Marten! I want to see when the pulley is set in the servo bed how the servos are acting. As I said in our email exchange, I have burned so many MG996 and MG995, that I do not trust those servos anymore. I never, yet burned a HK15298.
      Initially when I created the pulley and the servo bed it was for to solve a restriction rotation of 90…[Read more]

      • Tomorrow and the next two day’s I have some spare time during the day 🙂
        First I need to finish my Wrist update, this will help a lot to run more freely !
        Yesterday evening/night I’ve printed the first parts and one needs a small modification to fit better.
        When this fits well, I can draw the servo part…

        I will do my best, to show a moving…[Read more]

  • Here two pictures from all MG996R servo’s and All CS238MG servo’s, to see the difference in the total weights.
    The CS238MG servo’s saving a 161 gram of weight and they are placed more closer to the elbow !
    Both are a positive part, to safe a lot of friction to all arm and shoulder servo’s

    For the CS238MG it was necessary to redesign a simple…[Read more]

  • So, all five Servo Pulley’s are done to 🙂
    Tomorrow evening (after work) it’s time to assembling all things together.

  • So, the CS238MG ServoAdapter production is done for the Right Hand 🙂
    Next production are five Servo Pulley sets….

  • Here some pictures to show the difference between the servo weights…
    The MG996R was my first choice for the InMoov hand.
    The CS238MG servo weights including a mounted servo-adapter 30gr. less as the MG996R !
    So if I will use these CS238MG servo’s for my InMoov hand, it will saves a 150gr. of weight 🙂
    I think when I’ve finished the new…[Read more]

    • They may save weight but they may not be strong enough for the inMoov hand… The hand is not the same as the finger starter. There is a lot more friction on the push/pull finger mechanisms. The servos need to work much harder than the simple finger kit… However, let us know if they work because less weigh is always welcome…

      • Hi Richard,
        I’m almost sure these smaller servo’s are strong enough for the Hand.
        (don’t forget the special pulley which I’m using!)
        The spring which I’m using now, is perfect to start.
        If needed, I can use a stronger spring to get more torque.

    When the Finger moves to the Open position, the pulley is pulling with the small circular side.
    And when the Finger moves to the Closed position, the bigger oval side is used to pull the Finger…
    The servo makes a turn from 0 to 180, that’s way I can use a…[Read more]

    • I want to test these pulleys for sure! I’m guessing it will be also okay for our servos HK 15298 which have a restriction from 0 to 90 degrees.

      • Hi Gaël,

        For a 0 to 90 degree turn, I need to make them a bit bigger !
        These are now designed for 0 to 180 degrees.
        (please check your dropbox ! 🙂 )

        After some tests, I will upload them to Thingiverse.

  • Here a video from the new Finger Starter kit V2…
    The servo current use, stay’s very low during the test, sometimes it’s passing the 0.26A during a start.
    (I’m still waiting for the new servo’s, so a second video will come soon !)

      • Hi Gaël,

        Thanks and yes, when all is running fine together…. I will share a “little” video 🙂
        I think this will happen, when I get the new servo’s because of the fit to the pulley’s.
        I hope to get them next Tuesday.

    • when trying to reduce the forarms weight – did you experiment with getting less weight from the printed parts too? Just had a chance to look at a fiber enforced part at an exhibition. It had a thin layer of fiber on top and bottom of the part (needs 2 extruders) but showed impressing strenght.

      • Hi Juerg,

        I hope to save some weights with the new servo’s.
        They have three times less weight then the servo’s which I’m using now.
        And the servobed will be smaller.

        About the printing parts.
        I’ve done one finger with Carbon fill and is very lite.
        I’m only not sure enough, if this is strong enough !

        • how did you print the carbon item? Layer size? Perimeters? Fill?
          what tensions are you using? did you try to reduce friction of the tensions?

  • This is what I’ve printed yesterday, it needs some smalle updates to fit the Arduino better 🙂
    When this all fits well, I will share this @ ThingiFirse including the new servo pulley !

    • Hey Marten, that seems like a great modification. I have a question if you have a moment, since you designed the nerv boards. I have one servo (Rt arm omoplate), which when connected to the nervo board, gets hot and eventually burns when connected to the nervo board. The servo works just fine on a tester etc. I have seen in the tutorial, the…[Read more]

      • Hmm, it sounds there is something else happen with your servo connection.
        If there is a shortcut between the Arduino shield and the small PCB, the flat-cable will start getting hot !
        Please double check if there is no connection between servo outputs 10 and 11.

        If possible could you send me some pictures from your boards?

        • Thanks for trying to help me. I sent images via pvt email.

          • Hello Jaideep,

    I can’t wait….

    • Hello Marten,
      Very nice module for a Finger Starter!!!
      There is no doubt that the servo of 2,5kg will work because even a small SG92R works. With the Finger Starter there isn’t much friction. But such servo will burn for sure if used in the hand. The friction is far greater in many ways in the hand, that is the reason even a MG996 of 12kg Torque…[Read more]

      • Hi Gaël,

        The spring main function is to safe the servo mechanical (there is no direct blocking anymore).
        And including my servo pulley’s, the finger “close position” gets a smaller arm length !
        So this safes a lot of energy use from the servo, when the finger is in his “close position” 🙂
        I’m almost sure this spring setup is enough to hold a…[Read more]

    • Thats a good idea! Can you share details on how to install them?

      • Sorry, yes, just route the connection from either plus or minus pole from the power supply to the servo through the fuse.

    • hello juerg interestinf wrist
      thank you for show us

    • Hi Juerg,
      Very good demonstration and video!!
      This looks very promising for handling beverages and other delicate tasks.
      I will Google+ your video and add the parts to the derivative collection because it’s very interesting progress.

      • I just wanted to thank you all for the replies I received for my modified hand from different sources. I hope to see soon a copy of my hand on other InMoov’s!

    hello you can see my video about my easy plateform here
    you can see battery removable easy when it is discharge change by a new

  • Small video to explanation the driving system of my plateform and the locking mecanism for to be able to push InMoov by hand while driving direction with the remote.
    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]

    • i like your choice color in your inmoov!!!

    • Awesome, now we can go racing!!
      Thanks for all the links. I am still using a huge Transmitter gracefully given by Alessandro during the Paris Makerfaire, but I really want to build something much smaller which could transmit directly to the receiver.
      Having two functionality for the mobile plateform is super handy when you travel with…[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]

  • I had to wait forever for my Chinese fishing line to arrive, but once it arrived I got going again. Now the left arm, hand and bicep are finished, except for the fingertips. Everything works as it should with the Arduino.

    Unfortunately my 3D printer has been destroyed in a fire, so there might be some time until I can continue with this project.…[Read more]

    • Beautiful!
      It is a shame and sad to hear about your printer. I hope you got an insurance or some options to get a new printer.
      May 2016 help you for that!!

    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
        i design a connectors for wheels and motor
        so i use a motorcycle for children find in trash a small bicycle children find in trash and i use a batterie for drill…[Read more]

  • Using MyRobotLab and creating a special control GUI with sliders.
    This might be using MaVo\’s GestureCreator in the background.

  • Students at IES Vegas assembling the eye mecanism on InMoov\’s face.

    Robyn Inmoov (skin) sensor moving the arms

    • Well Markus, this works very nice. I can see how effective this works, and the sensors seem to be working well.
      I guess you could also use it to create gestures, if both arms were not coupled, using “capture gesture” voice command.

    • Yes i have both sensors working now thanks to Greg and they move separately.
      and it is very easy to create gestures.
      there are so many possibilities
      for example interaction with people.
      my experience is that many people want to touch and feel with their hands
      and now Robyn will respond to that.

    Robyn Inmoov arm sensitive driving

    • Nice work, Markus! I see lots of applications for these touch sensors. I have also experimented with them.

    • Nice works, Makus! I see lots of applications for these touch sensors, giving a robot the sense to “feel” is huge.

    • Amazing! Looks great, easy to imagine this in a variety of applications…

    • Super Great Markus!!
      Actually we could make just a tactile bracelet for easy driving control!
      That would be easier to make, because I remember you saying in a video, that it was a bit difficult to make the sensitive forarms sensors. And the videos does show the difficulties of the task.
      I don’t remenber, did you use i2C to save analog entries on…[Read more]

    • Oh and I see that Robyn is getting ready for Christmas!

    Trying out some OLEDS for InMoovs eyes. they react to noise and light too!

    • Woooi, might be a bit scary for children!! But I see the point!!
      Does it blink the eyes lid?
      Nice finishing surface on your prints.
      Did you use car primer filler? Are you printing in PLA or ABS?
      It is what I do when I want a good finish job surface for to gunspray car paint. But it works easy on ABS, unfortunately the results aren’t very good on PLA.

      • Hi Gael – yes the Eyes blink, the iris gets smaller or bigger depending on the light. you are the expert!….yes printed at 100 micron, then sanded and sprayed with car primer filler.
        I have printed all Inmoov in ABS and all the gears and pistons in carbon fiber(very light and strong).

        Thank you for sharing such a great project (which has taken…[Read more]

        • Hey we want a video of the eyes in action!
          Carbon fiber ABS or PLA?
          I have only seen carbon fiber PLA until now, but maybe it’s a new product.

          Car filler primer is great for finishing on ABS. I use a polyurethane brand, the only thing I discovered, is that you really need to wait to make sure your coatings are super well dry to see if the…[Read more]

    • Hi Gael – It is a Carbon fiber reinforced ABS mix. I must say it prints very very well. it wears your nozzle out though. I had to replace my nozzle after printing a 1000 grams of the filament. still well worth the price of a nozzle. I purchased from 3DXTECH in the usa.

      I will do a short demo video so you get the idea. still think I like the eyes…[Read more]

      • for those interested – The OLED eyes are from a project on the adafruit website. you can also customize to how you want it to look. lots of great ideas on there too……

    • nice eyes. how can it see if they are screens? do you have a camera mounted somewhere else?

      • If I decide to go this route, a camera will be mounted inside Inmoovs forehead. the color of the eyes can also be changed, red, cats eyes etc………..
