I just finished building and installing Gael’s new articulating neck design. His design is great as usual, very robust and smooth.
Hello, is the stl file available?
Bob Houston posted an update 2 years, 9 months ago
This is a really good looking wheelbase.
I’m going to do something like that for Robyn.
I’ve added some new parts to my InMoov.
That’s so cool!
Awesome work,,, The Clean Prints and Cable Wraps really makes him a Fine Specimen
Congratulations! What a beautifull base you made!!
Bob? What did you use for the power! Is it a mother board that drives your robot or a notePad! Thanks in advance! 🙂 PS: Excuse my English!
I have uploaded a Battery Door with the MRL logo on it to Thingiverse.
I have printed the top door and it looks great, thanks
Uploaded a couple of plates for InMoov’s back on Thingiverse, http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1616318
As I said in the notes , if anyone has Myrobotlabs logo in an STL. I would be happy to make a battery door with that on it to.
awesome! thank you..
you can download 2 versions of an stl file for the MRL logo here
let me know if you want them a different size or thickness
Thanks geoff, I have uploaded the battery door with the MRL logo on it to Thingiverse.

Flexible finger joints for InMoov
Bob Houston posted an update 4 years, 9 months ago
The ball joint
I resigned the Top Stomach so now it can lean Forward and Backwards. The design is a ball joint with 3 servos. It still needs some work but the concept is good.
Mmmh I had written a comment a few hours ago, but I guess it just disappeared.
Awesome work Bob!!!!!!
This is really adding a cool feature!!
When I was designing the stomach parts I wanted set in a 3d printed “rotule de cardan” (I don’t know how it’s called in English http://motopieces.fr/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/rotule-de-cardan-624×468.jpg) to…[Read more]
Thanks for your comments, Gael. Over here we call that type of joint a U-Joint. I considered that type of joint for this modification but the ball joint is much simpler. I left the pots in the servos and used my modified pistons that I made earlier for the Top Stomach. The reason I am experimenting with this is, that for walking I think the robot…[Read more]
very good idea use this articulation bob
i think to use the same idea for ankle was the best
Thanks Bob for the name “U-joint”, I couldn’t grab it on internet.
You are totally correct concerning good stomach movements for to be able to have human gait ressemblance.
The parts for this modification are on Thingiverse.

A demo of the stomach rotation
Very cool movements .
As you have done to make the system of wrist motion up and down ?
Finaly you can post videos again!
I see you replaced one hand with the Flexi hand?
Nice video, Bob!
I see the wrist also has a movement linkage. You might want to share your work with Juerg, as he is also working on something similar.
Yes, I hacked a flexihand and put the servos for the fingers in the palm of the hand and added a servo for the additional wrist movement. I have also just finished adding flexible joints to the original InMoov hand and it works pretty good and can hold objects fairly well. I posted a couple of videos on Youtube about the flexihand.
RIght, you take a new route with servos inside the hand – very nice!
My bending wrist uses another servo in the forearm and a few modifications on the existing wrist and hand parts – and it integrates a position sensor to allow the hand to stay horizontal. I am waiting for some cabling stuff as I want to have the forearm pluggable to the elbow.…[Read more]
Looks great! The flexihand seems better controlled – is that due to a design improvement in the parts or just better tuning during installation?
PS I think we should chip in to buy you some switchplate covers so you can program your bot to install them 🙂
Hi, testing to see if I can post a picture here.
Yes Seem to work!
this bug make me crazy, just need to remove the test seb pseudo 😉
