Ody Hand 2.0
by profbink, published
This hand is for our friend Odysseus, who lives in Greece. It is intended to be a starter hand for children with no fingers, a small palm and some ability to flex and extend the wrist. I decided on two fingers and a thumb, so that Ody would only be fighting the resistance of three digits. Short, blunt fingers reduce the chance of putting one's eye out. ;)
A quick video showing mechanical function. Cabled with 1.2mm nylon monofilament line.

Here are instructions for the original Ody Hand:
You can print everything but the finger distals with no support. The Ody Hand is essentially a Talon Hand, but with fewer fingers.
If you watch and read all the tutorial material and still get stuck, or if you have any suggestions or additions, ask me in the comments!
