Indoor rock climbing grab... Now every grab you can imagine is posible... I made this as a one hand grab (right hand), if I "mirror" it I could have the one for the left hand. With both, it can be used to exercise your hands and fingers.


It must be strong.

Yes, the cool thing is that with the makerbot you can do your own holds or grabs, as you want them, and if is not strong enough you can also do the holds for your feet wich are smaller and dont take to much stress.

This is pretty awesome, it'd be good to have a whole load of different sizes and shapes to build a more interesting wall. As for shear strength, however you're climbing it should never be dangerous if a handhold breaks - you should either be low enough, or have a rope harness. I'm pretty sure they wouldn't break with a completely solid infill anyway, though the finger hold could be a bit smaller to be stronger.

While I think this is an excellent idea, I wonder about the shear strength of a makerbot-printed climbing grab. I don't think I'd trust my weight to one, and I'm not particularly hefty...
