  • This is Awesome! I'm wondering what changes were made? I did a BIT of research while doing the design and tried to the best of my knowledge and time to be "Anatomically correct XD". I used Fusion 360 in the design and think the modifications would've been Easy- and I would probably have done it for free - Do you care to share any of the dimensional changes?The company you referred to must've used Blender or Z-brush to modify the STL models- which i know is much harder parametric wise. (Step files can be easily modified in Fusion 360 or the likes).Thank you so much for choosing My Design for your project- Honestly it is flattering!! (And my apologies about the screws!! That was honestly the type of fastener that I could get the EASIEST in South Africa! :)

    This is AMAAZING!! (7 Months... how life passes us by XD)You are inspiring me to get this project off the ice.thank you!

  • Haha that is awsome! I actually bought a pack of those bearings for the exact same purpose. Will have to kind of re-design the joints then to fit a bearing per joint (don't think 2 is necessary per joint). Also having a bit of trouble with arduino to control the fingers/servos separately (doing state machines might be the solution). Thank you for your comments, it might just motivate me enough to make time to continue this project again.

    The orange looks awesome :). I will greatly appreciate it!

  • Im concerned that you ask for MP1... Seeing as it is short for "Middle Phalanx (on digit) 1": which is the thumb....and the thumb does not have a middle phalanx.... Any way- your slicer should have some type of "autoplace" feature that aligns the models- to export every item from Fusion 360 in the correct orientation wouldve taken alot of time.NO it wasnt an after thought to tension it- i just had to improvise to test the concept in time for the competision. I have improved on the model and am using arduino to control it- I just havnt posted it here because of personal reasons. If you dont like the model- dont print it ;).

  • Adam!!! Thank you so much- It's these kind of things that motivate me!!! Can you please send a picture!!!!!! I am absolutely honored! I myself struggled with the strings and that's why I had to use the Lighter to open up the "Hoops". Thank you SO much this is absolutely AWESOME!!!!

  • Hi G. I guess we have the same interests for this project. I would like to share ideas with you! This design is in my honest opinion "Not done yet" and I definitely intend to improve on it. Currently (In the extremely few free minutes I have) diving into programming servos to control the hand. You are more than welcome to use this design for which ever purpose - as long as you share your progress with me so that i can see "What my baby has become" :).

  • Haha Thanks! I heard of that "solution" and will definitely use it as an alternative. Much less of a 'grind' anyway. The bit of research that I have done so far (I only started this project on the 11th of april) showed that only the PIP joints have a motion of about 110º. I mostly sat and stared at my own hands for hours. I was also a bit skeptic on how the fingers will rotate with the strings/cord and hence I decided to make my angles for THIS BASELINE a bit smaller just to test the concept. I'm looking to simulate the lateral movement of the MCP joints with a type of ball and socket (with limited range of motion).I am conducting a "fail" test on this PLA model soon to test the loads the pins can handle (Just to establish a baseline) to spec actuators and convert…

(Hope that makes sence???)In short- As soon as I can acquire a printer of my own (The cost will be to high to outsource print jobs every time)- i can proceed with a collection of improvements and alterations. I am doing all the R&D to make this project as close to the human hand (and arm soon to come) as possible. For fun.Thanks for the vote (And the metaphorical one! :)

  • Thank You- really- Your comment alone makes this project worth it for me.

    Hi MirkoI will restructure the assembly accordingly. However, If you download and open the Fusion file you will be able to save and export the STL's of the seperate parts as you wish (by right clicking on component in assembly- save as STL) . That was the main reason why I "broke the links" of the different parts-so that there remains no external references.

    Hi Franklin- my Spanish is absolutely horrible but I believe you asked me to skin a carpet while dancing for dog food??? Kidding- I don't THINK you need a premium account (for Fusion or Instructables) to be able to download the project. I'm using the hobiest version for Fusion 360 and would recommend it. If more people have the same problem I will consider uploading the STL files here.

  • Thanks Robert! That means a lot to me! If you have any questions feel free to ask me!!

    Hi Michael_ I'm not sure I understand? What do you mean "IT wanted to harvest your email to download???"

    I understand. Maybe i should change settings in the Fusion 360 DL page for the project?? But i know that Fusion does that- even if I, the creator, want to download the STL files it sends me a link via email.

    Hi! I thought about it- but it will voilate the "45-50 degree draft" rule. They will send me to 3D printing jail if I print it that way without supports! XD. But I will definitely test that in future prints. (but with supports ofcourse).

    This is absolutely great thank you!I started this project on the 11th of April. The project is still only an infant but I hope to make it grow tooth soon!. I actually wanted to use ball joints to simulate the motion of a real hand more accurately but time to experiment with printable joints were minimal. (for eg- the metacarpophalangeal joints have more degrees of motion than those of a pin joint.) The thumb... I initially had the thumb's MC on an axis not shared with any other finger and because I was stuck and with pin joints at the time being I had to pick and choose a position.I realized (during the design already) that it's not entirely what I wanted but decided that it was good enough for the purpose of this revision.Thanks so much for your comment! Truly appreciated!

    Thank you so much this is great!I only started this project on the 11th of April. It's still an infant but I hope to make it grow teeth soon!! I actually wanted to use ball joints to simulate the metacarpophelangeal joints more accurately but time and money was limited so I stuck with simple pin joints for this revision. During design I actually had the thumb's axis angled 25deg from the vertical in the center of the hand- but time was running out and I had to "thumb suck" a position that would be simple, and good enough (for NOW).Thank you for your advice I appreciate it a great deal!! I will most definitely use your advice in further development!

    THANK you!!!

  • That is heartbreaking yet inspirational! The ONLY reason this project was printed in PLA is because of the printer I had available. (the friend of a friend's printer). I believe ABS is a bit more expensive im my region and the printer you need to print ABS aswell (you need a heated envelope ans hence a more expensive printer). This project is a baseline for me to develop, im my spare time, a hand/arm worthy enough!

    Maybe-To what should I change it?
