Mr. Roland Scharl and Mr. Jürg Maier presented their InMoov robots using photos and videos. We are pleased about the consent granted to present these great projects.
Both have (without knowing it from each other) printed the InMoov in PLA-HT on their Multirap M300.

"Dear Mr. Tosché,
Multec customer, Roland Scharl, shows photos of his robot.
We are delighted with Mr. Scharls complex robot project that impressively shows what can be produced using our Multirap 3D printer and Multec filament, as well as what type of functional components and design elements can be made from 3D printed parts.
The InMoov is an open-source project of the French developer, Gael Langevin, whose construction plans and print templates are freely available and the InMoov is fully produced by a 3D printer.
InMoov can control servomotors using its controls via Arduino with MyRobotLab 26, making movements in line with human anatomy possible.
Thereby, the robot can perform gestures, perceive its environment by means of microphones, Kinect and cameras, and react to its surroundings via speech recognition and intelligent programming.
The construction plan and background information on this can be found here: http://inmoov.fr/gallery-v2/
Mr. Scharl’s project is extremely sophisticated and we are delighted that he has granted his consent to publish his great project.
The inspiring InMoov project shows the large range of how 3D parts can be used in addition to being used for functional dynamic components such as trapezoidal spindles, bearings and gears as well as for design elements and surface design.
A project that profits from the unbeatably inexpensive FFF printing technique, which, with its material costs and printer-hardware costs, is considerable superior in this respect to common manufacturing processes and other rapid-prototyping technologies.
We are pleased with Mr. Scharl’s great work and are excitedly looking forward to the first videos on it; many thanks for sending the photos!
