A holding page for proof of concept finger mechanisms, fully printed in Filaflex.
- Gives increased grip and surface area contact.
- Stronger grip torque.
- Reduced part count.
- Live hinge (no rubbing)
- Opens automatically.
EDIT : 16/01/2015 : Uploaded all 5 fingers from Flexy-Hand which can be printed with support on their ends orientated at 45deg. These give a great print using customisable supports in CraftWare.
EDIT : 07/08/2014 : Uploaded all 5 fingers and fingertips from Flexy-Hand which can be printed with support on their side. Optimised integral hinges, so there is no visible "dogbone" cut-out in the phalanges.
Print the white one without support, but the gold one with support.
I printed with 2 perimeters and 20% infill. Comes out nice and spongy.
You can print the gold one as two halves and glue together too.
