Assembly has begun, I'd like to get the head, eyes and neck together to help Ale with 4 PID tracking... the faster I put this together the faster I can do "real software" development.. Fixing remotely or with no-workys is always much more challenging.
Its fun to see the parts come out and put them together. I feel like I'm in Gael's head, or at least observing his thoughts and solutions to solve various problems... very cool and a little voyeuristic. The design and the way things fit together is fantastic. Some little pieces were a bit tight fitting. I read that this is probably due to the fact Gael designed and built in ABS which shrinks more than PLA.
The Dremel with the router bit is great .. a couple of seconds on some of the holes and the pins will fit perfectly. Has a lovely sweet smell to when grinding :)
If you stop by Gael.. I want to say thanks and express how much I appreciate your design skills and also am thankful you chose to publish it with creative commons licensing. Now that you know I am in awe of your design skills, I have to ask, why did you rotate the head with 2 gears ? Why not a direct connection from the servo ? Just curious, was hoping to learn somthing..
ok .. looks like I got to buy some servos :)
EDIT - heh .. looking down the center of the neck I think I know why Gael chose to use 2 gears instead of direct drive - with direct drive there's not a hole down the center of the neck.. I'm guessing the setup is for WIRING ! .. Awesome :)
Christmas again... Yay .. a tray of good parts

A blog similar to KMC's with my own InMoov triumphs and tribulations.
I'm printing InMoov in black simply because it was loaded in the printer :) ... and I think it will look very cool, especially with red LEDs in the eyes ..
2 Good Prints ! Yay !
Since he's going to be all black, I'll be calling him Chad after KMC's suggestions & this video
