Here's a quick look at the base I've built for my InMoov robot.

Very Good! Lots more room for batteries and other essentials like a cold beer!:P

bhouston How about some info on the innards of your base. Really nice build by the way.

@ Robot Doc,
I used 2 small 12 volt, 19 RPM motors, here's the link to them
http://www.ebay.com/itm/291057616929?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT,
They are controlled with a 2X12 Sabertooth motor controller, you can get them from the Robotshop and Solarbotics. I am controlling the Sabertooth with an EZBv4. The third wheel is just a boogie castor, the batteries in the base provide good ballast.
I need to, once again, say thanks to Richard R for all his help getting the components and getting them all hooked up and working properly.

I already got to see Bob's base a while back... Now I am glad I didn't show mine in my inMoov video. Bob did a way better design job with his base... Looks Awesome Bob!

Looks GREAT, very impressive!
And has inspired me again, to start looking again for a 3D printer to start building a Inmoov.

Do you have more video of it moving long.

@ALL

Without causing a 'snow storm' of abuse, like the Cube posting! :)

Does anyone have experience of the FlashForge Dreamer printer? I know they
had a lot of issues with over heating and the carriage warping, and requiring replacement. Which FlashForge did a Modification which included installed a thermal couple sensor and cooling fans for the chamber temperature.
Apart from that, the reviews seems to be an excellent printer for the money,
for a newbie.

Cheers,
Chris..

Chris, Here is a URL to the Google Flashforge user group that can provide you with the most updated info on Flashforge. I'm still running the earlier Creator dual printer.

If I had a choice (which I did) between the Dreamer and the Creator Pro... It would be the Creator Pro hands down... I took @Doc's advice and purchased the Creator Pro and it has been an awesome printer....:)

Thanks everyone for your comments, more videos coming.
@cem, You should start a new thread to discuss that printer, then the comments won't be lost in this thread for those who look for information on the printer in the future.

@Bob.

I'm really liking the base. Very stable and looks great. Very clean. You have inspired me to start a little early on my next project after seeing the video and base design.

Looks great with the Inmoov.:)

bhouston,
The mobile base adds so much to your already great robot.
Looking forward to details.

@bhouston

Do you have any close up pics of Inmoov's head? Is the head design your own?

OOOOPS! I just did further research on Inmoov and realize now that it's open source but not available for commercial use.

(never mind, Bob)
