This is a remix of the first gauntlet that I designed to use with the Cyborg Beast. I found that I needed to reinforce version 1 when I scaled the print down to a smaller size. The velcro also put a lot of downward stress on the part so I changed the velcro slots to be inline with the vertical walls of the gauntlet. I am hoping this will help with stress on this section. This should also make the gauntlet a little less likely to "catch" on things. Karuna was interested in putting his shirt sleeve down over the gauntlet, so the vertical slots should help here as well. I also thinned the cable tensioner a bit to it has a lower profile for the same reason.
