Moving 3D model with JMonkey in MRL

calamity's picture

Last week I manage to get a 3d model of InMoov taking the position in synch of my InMoov. So let me explain how I did it

I start with the VinMoov model that Gareth post some time ago. Unfortunatly, I did not manage to be able to move it's armature (or did not found how to do). So I try something else

in Blender, I disasemble the VinMoov and saved each robot part that represent my DHLink in IK individually. I modify the part slightly so the origin of the part (rotation point) is at 0,0,0. I then export the part using OGRExml exporter.

I Love Serializing

Not that kind of Cereal.  
Serializing is when you squish information into a tiny stream of 1s and 0s.  The great thing about it, is it allows you to send this information over little pipes and wires !   You can move information around. You can make things change remotely. What are we waiting for ?

DIY Gamecontroller / Joystick

Today I tested if it ws possible to use the small esp8266-01 together with two i2c boards to make a gamepad. It worked pretty well, except that I need to figure out why the response is slow. Probably due to the rest API, but it could also be some waiting for the A/D conversion. 

Things are looking up

I had some problems and burned out an omo servo a while back. It was locked up so that meant I had to take the whole chest apart. Major hassel so I was unmotivated and didn't work on it. 

I mentioned it in the shoutboox and Mats gave me a suggestion. Don't just replace it but do an upgrade. Make something better in the process so it is moving ahead in stead of just reachieving what I already had.


[Inmoov Script] Merge Them All !

[WIP status] :

- gestures integration
- Spanish translation
- Automatic attachement/detachement with the help of autoattach()
- Chatbot corrections


Because standardization is the key of great things this base community script is born.

Stepper motor service?

Jan Janson's picture


I want to experiment with stepper motors as an alternative for some servos in my InMoov robot.
Searching on gives me some messages about this subject and I even see messages about a stepper-service in MyRobotLab that for some reason is no longer supported.

Can somebody tell me why this stepper-service is no longer supported? Is there an alternative? Are there any plans to pick this up again?


Testing uploading MRLComm from new Swing GUI on Windows

Hi GroG

This is the error I get. The Arduino IDE shows the spash screen and then stops with this message:


IntegratedMovement service visualized with jmonkey

I have replace the drawing with mesh. I still have to do some adjustment as the movement seem to be a bit offset but progressing



MRL 1.0.1943 - Servos

pouleto's picture


In previous versions (1.0.1723) I had to use setVelocity(0) function to make my servos (HK15298B) working properly (very slow). In version 1.0.1943 setVelocity doesn't work, and without this function my servos are very slow.

Note: Arduino softaware gives a compilation error for MRLComm.ino because of type issue.

MRLComm 38 not MRLComm 55 expected ?? Do I need a specific MRLComm for MRL-1943?

Hi Greg and everybody

I  have now installed MRL 1.0.1943 and I now have voice responses working !! My microphone finally working and chrome pages looking really good. MarySpeech talking back and answering away, telling me the time etc .
