Hands are complex tools that grant humans a superpower, the power to transform imagination into reality. The power of our hands is unlimited. We can use them to throw a ball, climb a tree, or build a tool.
Not everyone is fortunate enough to have two hands.
Robohand is an open source tool created to help restore the superpowers of humans who are missing the fingers from their hand. The original version was created by Richard Van As and Ivan Owen.

What is better for This Printing PLA or ABS or Anythings else??
I want to make one for one poor boy..
It's sad how makerbot is slow or doesn't answer questions around here.
Anyway, a custom wrist attachment needs to be measured and fabricated. A 3D scan of the student's arm and wrist would be ideal. I am not sure about fabricating it though, I don't think 3D printing is practical for that part. Polymer casting might be more suitable.
