Printed one for Disability Concerns on campus. Painted with hammered-metal finish paint. Director was very pleased and thought it might be very useful.

That's great! :-) Did the print came out as expected? Does all the pieces fit?

The pieces fit but I had some problem cleaning up the interlocking sections due to support issues. Assembled with epoxy but next time will probably use super glue gel instead. I used pocketknife to chamfer the holes a little for more comfort when pressing with finger, then painted. I hope it will help someone on campus.

Trinitybe - this is fantastic. I have a neighbor who is really excited about improving her functionality. Great job, I appreciate your efforts.

Hi this is super cool , so the finger tip just locks into the hole

Yes, that's basically it :-)

It's more than the tip, the "hole" is 1,3mm deep. So the finger is locked in place. the hole is a little wider then the finger, so you have some free movement. It's also makes it easier to "get in the hole".

PS: English is not my native language, so excuse me for the "sticking your finger in the hole" explanation:-)

Thank you. Here is a picture of prototype 4 :-) This was mainly the fase of determinating the width and height of the holes.
