    I nearly restarted the inmoov build, I got right down to the hips, then bought another motorbike and got distracted – winters well and truly here and the motorbikes are under cover, the workshop is cleared of bike parts (almost) and I am re-commissioning the latest build 3D printer – so soon I will be back on with my little buddy.
    I think I will…[Read more]

    changed jobs, bought a motorbike, restored motorbike, designed and built another 3D printer. Its now a week since the motorbike moved out of the workshop, re-commissioning my 3D’s (3 of them) – going to get back to printing the big lad!

    Have had a couple of printer issues, a stepper motor died on the extruder. All back up and running now.
    I have decided to re do some of my early prints now the printer is calibrated and turning out better prints.

    Have been through the BOM but would love feedback on any experiments with cheaper servos – has anyone tried alibaba – there looks to be some good looking servos being made in China for import…

    • Cheap servos will kill you. They do not run smoothly, will easily burn up, and stop working after some time. Some of them are also rather challenging to replace. Better to leave e.g. one arm/shoulder unmotorized and have the other one working fine.

    Since then I found my way to the InMoov web site and have set about printing the parts and trial fitting, whilst learning about and tuning my printer, these days the scrap pile is a lot smaller than the keep pile!!

    I started off wanting to build a 3D printer from scratch. I had heard about the rep rap wiki and decided to take a look – got the bug, no cure! I liked the look of the A frame type so set about making one out of raw materials and a set of printed parts – so much fun!
