Warning. Not nice to watch!

A few weeks ago I was printing some new parts for my inMoov robot. It was time to make some progress again. But… i was doing some vacuum cleaning and the power cord was wrapped around my inMoov robot. I am still wondering how this happened, but it few down hard. The pieces were al over the place.

As you can see on the pictures a lot of parts a really broken. PLA is a nice material to print and very hard when it’s printed. I still have to figure out what part have to be reprinted, but I already started with the parts on the lower torso, because al these parts are broken.

I think inMoov was a little top heavy and the stand was not stable enough. The side to side stability was OK, but front to back bot. At first it was no problem I guess, but when adding the arms a lot off weight was added. I have to find another solution for this before I build it again.

  1. Had hetzelfde met mijn inmoov. Lang leve petg. Minimale schade en kon zo verder. Maar ja dan komen er upgrades dus ben nu met inmoov 2 2.0 bezig

    1. Wilco. Ik ben ooit gestart met PLA en daar eigenlijk bij gebleven. Misschien Petg een betere keuze voor dit type werk. Eerst maar versie 1 afmaken. 😉
