My Inmoov's New Base

 
#1

Here's a quick look at the base I've built for my InMoov robot.

Very Good! Lots more room for batteries and other essentials like a cold beer! Tongue

bhouston How about some info on the innards of your base. Really nice build by the way.

@ Robot Doc,
I used 2 small 12 volt, 19 RPM motors, here's the link to them

They are controlled with a 2X12 Sabertooth motor controller, you can get them from the Robotshop and Solarbotics. I am controlling the Sabertooth with an EZBv4. The third wheel is just a boogie castor, the batteries in the base provide good ballast.
I need to, once again, say thanks to Richard R for all his help getting the components and getting them all hooked up and working properly.

I already got to see Bob's base a while back... Now I am glad I didn't show mine in my inMoov video. Bob did a way better design job with his base... Looks Awesome Bob!

This thread needs this....
"I'm all about that base, bout that base, bout that base....no wobble"

add custom printed hub caps. Will add to the wheel look. Use the inmoov logo in the center and print them white and trim it with black. The base looks good, not too short or tall.

@bhouston

Looks GREAT, very impressive!
And has inspired me again, to start looking again for a 3D printer to start building a Inmoov.

Do you have more video of it moving long.

@ALL

Without causing a 'snow storm' of abuse, like the Cube posting! Smile

Does anyone have experience of the FlashForge Dreamer printer? I know they
had a lot of issues with over heating and the carriage warping, and requiring replacement. Which FlashForge did a Modification which included installed a thermal couple sensor and cooling fans for the chamber temperature.
Apart from that, the reviews seems to be an excellent printer for the money,
for a newbie.

Cheers,
Chris..
