A yad is a pointer used when reading Torah during a Jewish religious service in order to prevent touching the handwritten parchment. This version is a simple design I made in ZBrush based on a mannequin hand.
The print came out best if the hand is elevated at an angle with the other end resting on the build plate. That way the layers are biased relative to the long arm. Also the finger detail is best if it is the last part printed.
I used ReplicatorG to prepare the file, a MakerBot Replicator2 with the Replicator 2 slicing defaults and the following settings with white ProtoParadigm PLA to do the printing:
Infill = 10%
Layer Height = 0.200
Shells = 1
Feedrate = 40
Travel Feed = 55
Temperature = 220
I used a raft with full support.
