Dj Sures Does Videos On How To Build An Inmoov

How would the community like DJ to do a video series on building an InMoov, similar to the Ben Heck show/videos?

Also, wouldn't it be great if they made some of the parts used in the project for sale?

I'm one that's all in and willing to donate to this project...

@69developer All that info is over at the inMoov website, including a BOM list, 3d drawings and detailed pictures of the assembly. There is also a google forum that Gael started that has a wealth of info.... Everyone who has built or is building an inMoov uses the resources on Gaels site.... It is extremely difficult to give a detail parts list right down to the nut a bolt used because everyone builds their inMoov slightly different.... I'll say this, it's about $30 - $50 in screws, nuts and bolts.... To be honest I don't even know what exactly I used as far as hardware is concerned as I just bought what I needed as my build progressed.... Other than the hardware the rest is basically just servos and abs/pla.... Like I said there is a BOM listing which includes the servos you need for the project over at the inMoov website... You just start building and it seems to all come together....:)
Both the Tower Hobbies TS-80 Giant scale servo & the Hitec HS-805BB have the square 5K pot...install in.

The Inmoov original stl file where using round pot... since the square pot.. made their apparition, some people have publish new stl file to adapt the square one

http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:254664 So far so good.

The advantage of round pot..is you can rotate the body into the case to tweak the movement of the articulation. (could be very handy for elbow and shoulder adjustment.)

I have discover there is a round 5K pot.. into the EZ-robot HD servo. That is exactly what is needed.

I couldn't fine any source so far. Do you think you could help to find one?

I too would be very interested in knowing where to get these pots.
@DJ, may I ask where you got your inMoov? Would love to order something in that condition...
@DJ, never mind, I see now.

@Richard R, want to semi-make me one? Please... :D:D:D
@69developer .... I wish I could dude, but I can't ... To make it worth my while I would have to charge several thousand dollars for it. Even if I didn't get caught, I am not willing to take the risk... Wait for an awesome deal on a printer and you're golden... It's a great project...:)

are the stl files for inmoove free to download?
BTW, that looks like an inmoov on the couch/chair in the main camera view of the EZ-B website. Here is mine so far. It's taking forever due to a general lack of talent and no time to spend on it. Can't wait to actually get to do some programming.

he looks great.
@Checksumff Your inmoov is coming along nicely... Don't sell yourself short... A lot of the inMoov parts don't fit that well to begin with... I did a lot of re-prints and a lot part sanding myself... I am sure Bob will tell you the same... Keep plugging away, you'll get there....... :)
I found that if I printed the parts with more than 2 shells, they didn't fit very well and I had to do a lot of dremel work, Most gears I had to print at 97 or 98% (doesn't seem like a lot of difference but it is).
Your InMoov is looking great!
I was wondering about your Inmoov project, I can see it is comming verry well.
Take all the time you need, it is a lot of work and your doing fine.
Thanks everyone! I appreciate the encouragement!
Good catch checksumff,
There is an arm on the table and torso + head on the chair.

Will there be a new EZ-Robot team member soon?
Aerius - I'm very excited to see what The EZ-Robot team can do with this.
If you go to my twitter page, you will see a close up of the InMoov at EZ-Robot. Should be within the last few posts...

I saw a couple of days ago, JD unpacking some parts that look like parts for
a InMoov? ;)
Hey DJ, where's all the videos you was going to do?!?!? I'm just kidding, I know you guys have been extremely busy.
