Meet InMoov, the first Open Source ‘3D printed life-size robot’

Joel Hackett lives in Albury New South Wales where he work for the local brick factory and in his spare time runs a small hobby business doing 3D printing. Joel first got started in 3D printing back in February 2012 when he bought his first ‘Makerbot Replicator 2’. It was a big learning curve as Joel had to teach himself how to design and 3D print.

The Project: InMoov

InMoov is the first Open Source ‘3D printed life-size robot’ that can be replicated on any home 3D printer, with a build area of 12 x 12 x 12cm or larger. InMoov was conceived by Gael Langevin (a French model maker and sculptor) to be a development platform for Universities, Laboratories, and Hobbyists, but first of all ‘Makers’.
