Adjustable thumb for InMoov
by Anar, published
It gives more DOF by allowing the thumb's angle to be adjusted.
It uses the same wiring principle as for the fingers, and the knots will be hidden after gluing the tip part.
Updated 08/08/2012 : uploaded the parts for the right thumb
Updated 28/08/2012 : I made a new version of the base that is more respectful with the original InMoov's thumb angle. It's also stronger. Please read instructions.
Updated 16/11/2013 : after Balse's constructive comment (thanks!) I have corrected a few small problems. Only the right thumb is available ATM but I will also upload the left thumb soon.
Updated 24/01/2014 : I uploaded the new base that user Balse modified (left and right). Please read his comments to know why he made that correction. Thanks Balse !

and thanks for your comment.
I will try to upload the left version ASAP but yes, the left version can be obtained by mirroring the right one.
I just don't remember on which axis the mirror should be performed. Probably XZ ? Not sure...
I also didn't have the time to check what user Balse has reported. Sorry Balse !
One more thing...
Gael has uploaded a new version of the hand that makes wireing simpler but I don't know if that new version has conduits for the 2 extra wires that my thumb derivative needs. I also have to check that.
Is it possible to have the left version uploaded? Also, I haven't checked yet, but could the right just be mirrored? Thanks for this great improvement to InMoov!
Hi Balse !
I completely agree that all these derivatives are counter productive by adding ambiguity on what to print exactly.
That's why I have decided not to upload here all the corrections I make to the project and prefer to put them on my blog where Gael can come to pick them up and replace the originals part himself. This way leaving all the parts at one and same place under Hairygael's name and control.
So you're welcome to send me your correction and I will put it here with all credit you deserve.
Thanks again for helping at making InMoov even better !

- After removing supports, fix the 2 biggest parts together with an M3 20mm bolt as axe.
- Put 1 wire into each hole and make a knot on each
- You can now glue the last part and it will hide the knots (you can use acetone for gluing).
- take away the original thumb, remove the base part and fix it back to the new base.
- put the 4 thumb's wires in place
Left version :
just print the left version of the base (balse version) and reprint the other two parts
