I thought this would be fun, and just in time for halloween...for once - I've been wanting to make one of these for a while and just couldn't get around to it. This is my version of a horror classic from the movie 'Nightmare on Elm Street' - Freddie's "Glove"... or at least the fingers and hand plate. I created one finger (the pinky for my hand) and the hand plate and the rest is all about scaling. The files named with "other_" are the 'pinky' finger scaled up to 1.15 percent.
I have a small hand (I'm 5'5" and some change) so I created the pinky, checked the fit and through a little trial and error found a good scale for the rest of the fingers on my hand (1.15%). You may want to do the same unless you have some insight into finger ratios n such.
I used brass paper fasteners I got from JoAnne Fabrics for the "rivets" on the hand, and PLA "rivets" for the finger joints. ( A hot soldering iron makes this easy.)
For the glove I used the first cheap thing I could find in the garage. (Not being terribly picky about that part just now)
As mentioned in the description... figure out the size for your pinky (I know that sounds crappy) and scale the "other" files based on that. The uploaded "other" files are scaled to 1.15% versus the pinky.
Print 1 hand plate and 1 pinky of your size and 3 "other_" parts (finger tip, blade and knuckle) scaled based on any adjusted scaling you do to the pinky and hand plate. The blades have tabs for the finger tips, so they have to be in scale with each other) . If you find you need larger " everything" then remember the hand plate is somewhat proportionate to the "pinky" and may require scaling as well.
Assemble the parts by attaching the finger tips to the knuckle parts for each finger. I used 3mm PLA rivets and a soldering iron. Then attach the completed fingers to the hand plate and a glove of your choosing using brass paper fasteners or any thing else you think will look good.
The blades tab into the fingers and can be glued or not ( they fit well without and are probably safer that way).
