My printer arrived about a week ago and I proceeded to assemble the little guy with a lot of help from the MakerFarm assembly docs and videos. I also had several help sessions from Colin at MakerFarm. I must say that I would have been completely lost without all the help.
Anyway it is together and printing most of the time. Still a bit of an adventure but worth it. Here's a couple of pics:
It is a linear bearing Prusa from MakerFarm. Rat's nest of wires I still have to straighten away.
Here's one from the other side. It is currently printing the large wrist piece for my InMoov. It can't be seen because the extruder is hogging the camera.
This shows some more of the clutter in my work room including the filament spool up above.
Beginning to work on my InMoov.
I have gone through the process of printing out the pieces of the test finger, assembling it and writing a simple Arduino sketch for testing. Here's a picture of the finger and my idea of a 9 volt power supply.
and a little video with the finger fingering.
Like the nail polish??
I am currently printing out the pieces of a right hand, forearm and rotating wrist in anticipation of assembling the first part the my InMoov. Also, work is underway on a control program for Raspberry Pi that I am writing in 'c'. I will be using Adafruit's 16 servo control board and one or more Raspberry Pi's.
I must say that I am having a great time. I just need to find more time to blog about the whole process.
