Greetings, I am a teacher in Texas and I would like to print one of these for one of my second graders. My printer won't arrive until late April. Would someone be willing to print out a hand? Additionally, anyone have any luck locating the hardware? I would be willing to track down a hardware kit in exchange for a hand for Lily.

Thanks tee ex em ay see see ay why @gmail.com

and i want know where i can buy stainless steel hardware
thank you debrowing [email protected]

I am a middle school teacher in Virginia. We have a 3D printer and have printed the hand pieces. I'm having trouble knowing exactly what some of the parts are, however. For example - is bungy just elastic cord (similar to what you get in the craft store) and is cable actual cable, or fishing line, or...? Can someone tell me who I can talk to? We are working with our local prosthetics & orthotics clinic to make these for several people, and we want to make sure we do it right. Thank you! [email protected]

Quick note. There is no funding available for this to be given to all. if this is not possible for you to do yourself as it is open source, please make a donation to the cause and I'll try my best to make one for you. Considering the cost of other units out there this costs Robohand (ABS) the best part of R5k ZAR to make. So this is still actually free in the sense that it is 10% of the costs involved in helping someone or yourself.
If unsure or have questions/ or I can make you one, please email [email protected]
Given the time zones involved at stages you can Skype me @ woodmen12 email for a time/appointment.

Guys, has anyone translated the above into a parts list that we can easily order from Amazon or another source? It would sure be handy.

I am also confused about the start-up kit. Can you send me a link to the purchasing site?

This guide mentions a start-up kit. Where can we purchase one?

I would love to begin making these for some of my patients. Some modifications may be needed for them. Is the source code available to make it easier to modify the parts?

The files are available on this site. Just enter "robohand" in the site search field and you'll find the files for download. You will need to download and install the Makerbot software, but then you can export the files as .stl or .obj and import and modify them in any 3D modeling program.

I would like to add - if you don't have money available for making one, let me know - i might not be the biggest Maker in the world but i am for sure damn good at fundraising. Just let me know at [email protected]

Khearn. Lets go to the beginning. I started this out of the goodness of my heart. it is for free! also it took 100's of hours to put this together.I am now wondering what you have done for mankind??? here is a suggestion for you. Downloaded it. put it on your desktop and rename it what ever you think it should be! it is said that "we meet with the same intent that we show for others!" cheers

Maybe this could use a more descriptive name. It's not exactly a manual for how to assemble ABS.
