le support servos moteur désoler faute de frappe

bonjours tous le monde voila je me suis lancé aussi pour faire un inmoov mai je suis bloqué car j ai télécharger tous les fichier pour faire les yeux pour pouvoir adapter la camera ez robot mais le soucis c est que je ne vois pas les support sevos moteur ez robots pour les yeux si quel-qu un peut m aidez cordialement

can the left eye fit for a PIR sensor?

hello I wanted to know where you found the model of the eye in fact and different from that of monnerby

The eye ball is from this file,http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1035688., Print those parts as it says in the Thing Details.

Modified InMoov head, part 3

If you need more info, don't be afraid to ask. You can also email me at; houston5913@hotmail.com if you want to.

Thanks I will do that. Ya Its been hard trying to remember how to do simple things again!

Hi bhouston I have enjoyed all of the things that you have developed for (Inmoov by Gael ) over the years. I had printed your eye modification about a year and a half ago and monnerby's head parts and then I had a stroke. And now Im trying to get back to printing and working on Inmoov.
The question that I have ( if you choose to answer it if not I will understand ) is your eye modification lower servo motor and eye vertical lever for inmoov seams to hit monnerby's neck redesign v5. I know its something i'm doing wrong, and i have rechecked all of the parts that I have printed but i am not sure what it is. If you could give me a little guidance I would appreciate it so much. Again I know its something that i'm doing.

Hi, nice to see you are back. I designed this eye mechanism to fit into Geals original head design and my neck modification. I'm not familiar with Monnerby's neck modification. Try using my neck modification and you won't have any problems.

Hello,bhouston! I will appreciate it that you put your fantastic designs,may i ask you two questions。what is the camera type in the video?and I want to redesign some parts of the Inmoov too,may I ask you that how do you determine the exact dimension of the new parts so that they can fit the older parts?thank you

Thanks for the nice words. I use the EZ-Robot camera. My InMoov runs on EZ-Robot hardware and software. I find their system very easy to use. Check them out here http://www.ez-robot.com. When I make modifications, I start with the dimensions of the parts they will fit to and retro fit from there. What are you going to redesign?

thank you for your reply, we are a University student team from Chnia.At present, I just want to make some small modifications for the present parts,for example that the teflon plate in your Inmoov is not so easy to acquire,so I want to change it so that the friction between the two middle stomach planes can still be reduced by the steel balls between them.
question about the dimension is that most of the filetype of the Inmoov parts are .stl which are uneditable and hard to acquire the eact dimensions, I try to convert it to some editable filetype with the software Solidworks, but it turns out to be very time-consuming,up to hours for one small item.I wander is it possible for you to share your experience ?

Yes, trying to put the STL's into Solidworks is difficult, try using Tinkercad. https://www.tinkercad.com. It's a free program that you can easily import STL files into and modify.

thank you, and one problem about your another design——articulating stomach,it seems that the TS_base_left.stl is the mirror body of the TS_base_right.stl,either connection part is hollow,no bump,so the two parts can not be assembled together .would you mind updating it?thank you

Use the TS Connectors. Print 2 of them.

First of all thank you so much for sharing all this cool stuff with us! Your Inmoov eyes look very cool what do you use for this black rings ("Iris") on your eyeballs? Do you print this part?

thank you for give us your project
it is nice just like i need

Thanks, your design is very strong and stable. It supports these other components very well.Thanks for posting your designs.

That was great. Nice to see that you have continued the modification so that it can be used without any other modifications to the head.
