Hi !
here are the InMoov's forearm parts as solid CAD for those who might be interested.

They are also available on my blog here :

STEP and IGES available.
More to come...

UPDATED November 15th 2013

The following parts are now also available as step and iges :

robcap3V1+elbowshaftgearV1 (as single part)  


These CAD are not the result of a conversion process.
They are the result of a complete retro-engineering of the original STL files.
They've been designed with hi accuracy and there's no more parts overlapping with each other.
They are intended for motion analysis in a CAD solid app but can also be used to make better "prints" than with the original STL files.
It will then all depend on the tessellation you will apply during the STL conversion...

Tu assures anar! C'est un travaille de pro!!! J'ai hâte de voir la suite. Ps: il y a les 2 côtés des bras?

Hi Anar. This is just great work. No words. Do you have the hand as you mentioned in the website. I am doing something similar in making CAD files from STL.

I've tried to pull these into Autodesk Inventor Pro 2015 to both edit and export as STLs. I keep getting an error message saying they are not solid models. Any work arounds?

Thanks! Great Work!

Hand is a work in progress.
But I can't tell you when it will be finished...

good work!

Nice work! i just want to know if you have the hand parts for using in a 3D CAD??

To be able to print these parts you need first to convert them to STL.
To do so you can use FreeCAD or any other 3D app that can open STEP or IGES and export STL.
The parts will be tessellated during this process. Depending on your tessellation options you can result in coarse or smooth STL.

Then the STL parts will have to be reoriented the way you plan to print them.
The best is to reorient them like the original parts.

Cheers !

nice job anar but could you explain how we can print in 3d ?
