Introduction: 3d Printed Mechanical Hand

About: 15 year old from Sydney Australia who like doing woodwork and making stuff.

I made this hand from photos of a wooden one that was laser cut

Step 1: Making the Hand

First designed the hand in pieces on solid edge

Step 2: Assembling on Cad

Once I had designed the pieces i assembled them on solid edge.

Step 3: Printing

Now I exported the pieces to makerbot and printed on a makerbot replicator.

Step 4: Laser Cutter

Now I drew and laser cut over 100 plastic rings to act as bearings.

Step 5: Assembling

I now assembled the pieces using wooden dowls (8mm) and threaded the pieces and plastic bearings. After a lot of tweaking I was done.
