We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
If you are printing hairygael's Inmoov robot and haven't already ordered your high torque HS-805BB servo motors, this assembly can be incorporated into your arm and shoulder in lieu of the actual servo motors. It will allow you to fully assemble your arm and shoulder prior to ordering your servos. I found this useful in that I wanted to see how all the parts went together before I went on to powering the robot.
Please note that I have created the dummy servo motor for the top half of the actual object. This is adequate for fitting your Inmoov parts together and saves printer plastic. If your 3D printer does not automatically build support structures for your prints, you will want to either chop the bottom off the servo body under the mounting flanges OR add some support material under the mounting flanges. These mounting flanges are too large to self support. You may also want to provide a bit of support for the inset at the top of the turntable and axis part.
The axis and turntable part's axis has a small cross-section above the turntable. Depending on the thermal footprint of your printer's extruder you may want to print several of this part in order to give each layer of the axis time to cool before another is added. If this is not done, you can have deformations occur in the axis as you approach the end of the print session.
