The Modular e-NABLE Tool Adapter allows you to equip customized tool attachments to a Raptor Reloaded or Phoenix hand. Scaling up with either hand model (left or right), it uses a slider to lock a tool in place.
Attachments are designed to be customize-able and allow for a wide range of creative possibilities provided that they use the same octagonal base. Included with the adapter files are a 13/16 inch broom holder attachment at 100% scale and 140% scale as well as the attachment base for creating your own attachments (currently only in .stl but can be recreated in other formats). I'm considering overhauling the design by recreating the adapter in multiple 5% scales using the same size tool attachment base to help streamline the attachment design process.
This is a very preliminary design and there are many additions and changes expected in the coming weeks. If you use this design and create new attachments please share them so we can create a library for different tools!

20% for Tool Adapter, 40% for Slide Lock
Using PLA use standard print settings and the below recommendations for each part. I have not tested ABS, let me know if you do! You will need a strip of velcro and some sanding tools or files to finish this.
Tool Adapter: From my experience using Cura as slicer I have had the best results printing the tool adapter as oriented in it's .stl file with supports everywhere and a raft. The raft may not be necessary depending on how well your prints stick to your print bed but if you don't mind the extra filament used it seems a safer bet. 20% infill seems to work well, you can increase it but keep in mind it will also increase the weight.
Slide Lock: Print as oriented in the .stl file with supports everywhere. I like to increase the infill to 40% for this part as the snaps that lock the tool in place will be the most likely part to break in the course of use. I'd also recommend going with at least a 0.2 resolution with this part.
Attachment print settings will depend on the tool but I would suggest at least a 40% infill for greater durability.
After printing remove all supports and sand or file away any rough edges. Attachments especially need sanding or to be worked in repeatedly to fit well.
Cut a strip of Velcro a little over the length of the hand to secure the adapter in place under the palm of your printed hand.
