hello cristian , can you upload the missing part for lower hand body , and gear

Buenos día primero que nada para felicitarte por este proyecto tan lindo y que hace feliz a los niños con un discapacidad te quiero pregunta si existe alguna forma de modificar las medidas de tu proyecto ya que yo trabajo para una fundación en México y estamos iniciando en lo del 3D, queremos hacer una prótesis como la tuya para algún niño de la fundación. Espero alguna respuesta gracias.

Hi I am printing this thing and it is really amazing.. Does anyone know where to find the bottom piece for the hand so the thumb mech can work? cheers Matt

Thank you so much for showing us what you did for this child.
Please continue, And feel free to contact me if you run short of funds for parts or filament.

This is amazing! I am totally in awe of what you have created for this child. As a mother, you have brought tears of joy to my eyes. As a maker, I am in awe of your skill. Keep up the good work!! You have made such a difference in a child's life!

Hermoso trabajo para un minusvalido

How many spools of each type of filament would you recommend?

Do you think you can do the same for hand only ?!

Where could I find instructions for assembly?

Soon very soon, maybe a couple of weeks more

What a beautiful project!
My highest respect for this work.
I wish the kid all the best in the world and much fun with his Ironman prothesis.
