I made some skin for my Inmoov
how did you do it?
Is it silicone?
Yes, its silicone gel 00
Very interesting! You did a great job, it is so real! I was wondering if I’m able to do that! You must post the receipe! How did you do for the eye,S lids?
Well done, very impressive, which eyes and eye lids did you use? plus lots of other questions, such as do you notice any noise reduction from the servos?
I used basic silicone 00 and added some skin tone. The eyes are https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2548952 but I modified a little bit. There is no reduction in sound and I added a spring at the back to counter the weight of the silicone
Thanks a lot! Sure I will try this one day! Congrats!
Hi Peter, Many thanks, very much appreciated.
That is brilliant. Creepy as hell, but brilliant!
It would be really interesting to know the process you used to create the mould for the silicone. Did you use a sculpt, or did you use a 3D file as the basis?
I simply made a plaster mould of the 3d printed face and copied it with about 5mm of silicone
Great idea, it’s turned out so well. Do you use a vac chamber?
Very good job! Could you post a picture or video of the face and eyes without the skin? And the interior of the skin for the attachments? It’s very interesting!
Very, very nice effect!
The silicone seems extremely soft, did you add a lot of silicone oil?
Is the skin mounted with magnets?
