Head for Robot InMoov by hairygael Mar 29, 2013

Description

Here is "InMoov", the robot you can print and animate. You have a 3D printer, some building skills, This project is for you!!

Remember this all these parts are under a non-commercial license, see the terms.

This is the head (obviously) which is controlled and assembled to the rest of the body, see for the parts on my blog.
There is a jaw mechanism and eyes mechanism which can be added or not.

I loaded the STL files in makerware and then slice and save to SD card.. then when I go to print them the files do not show up on SD card.. thoughts?
Hi, I wonder what attempted measures is stoping you to use InMoov for other projects. There is no restriction for to scale Inmoov, using Netfabb free version or Blender does the job very easily. I share my project with anybody has long as they respect the non commercial licence.
If anybody has been trying to use the inmoov parts to create a totally different project but has found that scaling the parts only morphs them unequally. I've found out how to make it so you can use inmoov parts for any project. If you want to remove the attempted measure to stop you from using inmoov parts for other projects PM me.

This is a work in progress, files might change until it is finished.
Before printing read all this, since the updates are on the bottom, it might save you printing time.
In order to protect this Open Source project, I uploaded the rest of the skull on:

Print one of each STL files attached. I did it in ABS.
Normally there is no need for support.
There is pre-supports to be removed:
On "TopMouth", under the noze and also inside there is anti wobbling leg to remove.
On "SideHear" there is anti wobbling legs to remove + a joining junction.
On "EyeGlass" remove the eyes supports.

The assembly is pretty simple, you need to glue together "TopMouth" to "SideHear"; The other parts can be screwed attached to each other or to the structure.

Hi HairyGael and everyone !

Does the eyeglass really don't need extra support ?

Seing the stl file I'm wondering how it is possible that the pre-support placed in the eyes holes could be printed without failing (I have just enough PLA to print it once, so I just want to be sure I won't go to a failed print).

I'm using an Ultimaker and cura to slice the parts.

Any feedback from those who printed it "as it is" with success ?

Thanks in advance for any reply and many thanks to HairyGael for sharing that great project with everyone !
Hi, normally the pieces inside the eyes act as support, they are so close from the edges of the eyes that they stand in place during printing. Until today I didn't get feedback about printing problems with them.
Hi thanks for the reply. My feedback : The pre-supports didn't remain in place for me, the nozzle hit them because they wrapped during the print. I finally save my print using some tape to set in place the pre-support previously removed by the nozzle !
They warped? I'm assuming you are printing in ABS. If I can give advise on how I print my parts with ABS.
I never use the fans, I made a simple heat chamber to avoid any air flow on the parts during prints. With the heated bed it keeps the part at the correct temperature avoiding any warp. If I print very fine little pieces I have aquarium air pump with a hose that comes to blow precisely at the edge of the extruder.
Thanks for these advices! But I use PLA... Anyway, I managed to have the part printed successfuly, so, no worry !
Hi, I'm into staring to build your incredible project together with a friend.
Sooner or later we will start experimenting with it, to improve, but like it is now, we are just intrested in copying it like it is and look where we come.

But correct me if I'm wrong, but the lower part of the mouth isn't here, nor on your Cubehero account...?!
O, nevermind I've found it in your jaw mechanism !
My bad ;)
Glad you found the parts links on InMoov site
Does this have the pieces for the top of the head? It doesn't look like there is enough stl's.
Hi,
Thanks for your interest, See in the instructions:

I find that “TopMouthV2.stl” can‘t be generated g code in replicatorG.
Hi, try removing the pre-support under the noze with Nettfab, maybe this is causing your problem. Here is a tuto:

Great! Thanks ,Mr hairygael. I printed it successfully.
I am new to 3d printing and wonder what is the best way to get strong printed parts?
I am printing with ABS plastic.
Printing it as slow as possible and filling 100% will be the best way to get strong.:-)
Hey hairygaël! Nice Job! Where are the ears?
Hi bstott, I still need to upload them.
Please upload soon :)
