Ok so I played around with the jointed hand that can be found on here and made it into a 1/3 bjd size
I printed and tested it, works pretty well, looks cool, but I'm not happy with
All the sanding and after processing. I wonder if I could print each
finger bit a different way so there is less support. Anyhow
I used .7mm elastic and its just a tad to big for the pinky.
I think best would be .5mm , I will upload the file at a later date once I
Perfect it! But for now here are some photos, let me know what you all think.
I am finished printing all the parts for my doll https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3184441
and I cannot string her because I am having trouble getting s hooks that I can use, I bought a few different sets of hooks on Amazon but they all seem to be made of steel and are impossible to bend to my needs.
The calf part of the leg only has a hole with a thickness of a large straw and none of the hooks I had already purchased and tried wont even fit. I just would like to know what other people are doing to make or get hooks for their dolls.
Is there any interest in making a mechanical doll with arm and head movement?
Danny Choo, founder of Smartdoll, started working on one back in 2014, but it seems the project has been shelved for now. See it here.
He also did a much simpler version that uses pulleys and a backpack. See it here.
If anyone is interested in picking up where he left off, it would be fun to put together a team.
