    Hello, I have a problem, I\’m building a inmoov bicep and the problem is the power supply, it have 0.25 amps and this is not enough to move the servos.Anybody can say me what power supply I need to move the complte robot with the link to buy. Thank you

    • Hello,
      I use a 6V50Amps power supply to move the whole robot. You can find the reference in the hardware and BOM page.

    Hello everyone,

    here, as I promised, I’m posting you after I’ve reached a level with this phenomenal project. Namely, I presented my robot InMoov to the university and people were delighted (I think I am the first in Croatia who reached that level of production in complete independence in terms of working on the robot itself and financing it…[Read more]

    Hello, I need help, I have a problem, I have soldered all the pins of the nervoboard, but when I connect the nervo to the arduino mega to my computer, the script to put all the servos of the hand except the one of the wrist does nothing. The impression that the order is not transmitted, do I need a power supply other than USB? Does anyone see…[Read more]

    • Hi.
      Yes, you need an additional power supply for the servos. I suppose the current would fry your arduino.
      I reused a 5V power adapter. I soldered a XT60 male adapter to the nervo board and a XT60 female adapter to the cable of the power.adapter: This way I am able to take away the current if my servos develop a life of their own.

    • USB power for the most part is limited to 2A under the USB2.0 standard.
      The average servo will draw between 2 and 3 Amps each.
      You will defiantly need a bigger source of power.
      I suggest a 6V power supply.
      If your planning on using it to power the whole of the Inmoov robot, then a 50 Amp power supply is recommended.
      There are other ways of…[Read more]

    Hello everyone 🙂

    this is an absolutely amazing project. I am very thankful that this is available as an open source project.

    I’m still at the beginning of building an InMoov. Regarding the walking of robots on two legs, the law of centrifugal force came to mind.

    • Hello Andreas! Welcome to this big project. We are here to help each other. It is a pleasure to know you. Add some pictures of your project during the assembly in your album. I like to see all the different versions of inMoov robot.

      • This project is very big and in every detail I can see, which problem stands in focus. So I think, I’ll build the InMoov first like the handouts/plans here.
        For now, I’m an absolutly Noob and will learn many new stuff.

    • The driver comes installed as standard on the Raspbian OS.
      Either your OS has been corrupted, in which case you might be better off restoring a backup or making a fresh install.

  • jaffa posted an update 2 years, 10 months ago

    Hello everyone,
    me again. I’m looking now at which power supply I need to take. The hardware map says that a 6v 60amps power supply is currently used, while it is also offered that 50 amps can be used. Now my question is which is better and whether 60amps will damage the whole electronics or it is only important what is the output voltage and…[Read more]

    • That Amps rating is the Maximum the Power Supply Unit (PSU) can supply, the voltage is the one that can blow things up.
      You want the 6V output, most of the gear used in an Inmoov will tolerate a 6V supply, most don’t like going too low.
      If you try and draw more than the PSU’s maximum current, the output voltage will drop, and all the electronics…[Read more]

      • Ray, thanks a lot for the nice explanation.

        • It helps to be an Electrician when looking at things like Power 🙂
          Voltage drop is something that is not well understood by most builders, or a lot of electricians as well 🙂
          I did have my Inmoov Fred try to explain it:

          I hope that link help you and others out a bit 🙂

    Sur Pied…

  • Bonjour, je construis un Inmoov avec une réduction de 25%, quand pensez-vous?

    • Il faut penser à la taille des servomoteurs . J ai suivi les conseils de Gael est j ai réduit à 64% avec quelques modifications ( les STL sont sur mon site)
      En réduisant à 64% les servomoteurs du commerce s’adaptent parfaitement .

    • mon site pour les STL du petit INMOOV https://inmoov.monsite-orange.fr

      • Oui merci, j’avais fait la tête à 50% mais trop petit avec des vis de lunette et problème de taille des servos. Avec une réduction de 75% ma crainte était de trouver les billes et la j’ai trouvé des 4mm, pour les servos j’ai fais des slots intérieurs donc pas de problème.

      • Ton site est bien fournis en leçon super…j’ai installer Myrobotlab pas de problème par contre le téléchargement dans la Mega 2560 plein d’erreur je peut pas compiler en suivant la vidéo de Gael qui était très bien expliquer, je vais recommencer avec tes leçons et encore bon boulot

    • as tu le bon driver , si tu fais un essai avec un fichier exemple de Arduino cela fonctionne t il ?

      • Oui, j’ai trouver la réponse sur le forum francophone , merci encore j’avance…

        • Bonjour, un RASPBERRY 4 fait l’affaire ou non ? dans l’œil gauche j’ai mi une camera RPI 8 MEGA pixel, je voie que vous utilisé un Lattepanda pourquoi et quel modèle ? pour les servos quel conseille pouvez vous me donné…j’ai commander 2 cartes Nervo d’autre conseille…

          • j ‘ai abandonné le lattepanda , si tu veux utiliser toutes les fonctionnalitées de inmoov il n’est pas assez puissant. pour les servos j ‘ ai utilisé différents modèles de gotronic et chinois . Gael préconise les HK15298B. et pour les petits HKSCM9-6 de chez hobbyking

            • pour les hanches j’ ai modifié les fichiers de Gael pour utiliser les mêmes servos que sur le grand InMoov Hitec HS805BB ou autres , (a cause du poids)

            • Bonjour merci pour tes réponses, pourtant 2 servos pour les hanches…
              Donc je vais tenter avec le raspberry 4 avec 8 go de ram et un écran tactile de 7 pouces pour commencé…, j’ai reçu mes 2 cartes Nervo.

    • If you are following a standard build as described in the build yours section of this site, yes you will need the nervo boards.
      Keep in mind the Raspberry Pi 3 or 4 are far too small to run the whole of the Inmoov project

    Hello everybody 🙂

    I am a new member here and would like to find out some information. I\’m wondering what type of filament is better for this inmoov project. ABS or PLA?
    I also want to ask how long it takes to get all the parts printed with a single 3d printer.

    Thank you in advance.

    • Hello and welcome,
      My original InMoov is printed in ABS, but there is very good PLA today that is almost as flexible as the ABS.
      Regarding the time to print a complete InMoov torso, arms, hands, head with a single printer is: one month and a half. That is day and night printing with no issues with your parts during printing time.

      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).

    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.

      • 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?

    • 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
