Need a hand with that?

Let us give you one, with this 3D scanned copy of our own.

Next to being awesome it’s optimized for printing without support material, and perfected to hold your iPhone or other smartphone!

(Also very cool as fruit holder, or just to throw at somebody who asked you for a hand).

Both files are pretty much the same, SUPERfinal has 43k faces, REGULAR got 15k, you choose.


On ultimaker, PLA, perimeter 2, solid layers 2, infill 0, layerheight was 0,15 and was a little to heigh (you can see some small holes).

Special high tech weight solution: during printing, fill the hand with some sand to counterweight the phone!

I'm a bit confused here, so 'splain me this: I printed this hand and it printed beautifully with no infill at all and only 2 shells, took about 3 hours. I just took it off the bed and it looks excellent! Now tell me, how does it hold my cell phone? For one thing the phone slips out of the slick PLA surface every time so I'm thinking of asking the staff here for a medical glove lol, but even with that my iPhone 5s does not seem to fit in any position on the hand. Please explain, thanks!

oh, and thanks for the model, I like it even if it does not work as a phone holder!

Make history!

This is a great build that even a beginner can do. It looks creepy in shiny, black PLA! Thank you for posting, Tweetonig :)

How much does that hand weight?

Hi, sorry for the late response but the scanning is done with 123Catch. We made a intractable about it! http://www.instructables.com/id/3D-scan-your-head-and-use-it-as-an-chess-piece/http://www.instructables.com/i...

You can scan your own hand? How do you do it? Would you be willing to upload a bunch of ASL alphabet models?
