Thanks for making this available! I have had great success with printing the Trautman Hook. I use it in lab with OT students to create a functional body powered prosthesis that they can wear and practice prosthetic training with.
If someone is looking for a project, it would great if the thumb (as it is termed) portion of the Trautman Hook could be designed to be stronger (thicker). This is the part where the control cable attaches to the hook (small cup like projection from the body of one side of the hook) to pull the hook open. Without added reinforcement all the thumbs have broken (even when I have printed at 90% infill).
