Hi! Great job!
Would you accept to share a STEP file so we can modify it?
I'm very curious to test a full hand printed in one part, and to adapt some place to hide some motor to move each finger (I plan to use it on a human size robot, base on Inmoov project...)

Thanks bu advance!

Do I print the palm in Flexi material or in rigid material.

Hi, could you post the assembled version of the hand? I would like to scale it in Blender like in this E-nable video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DnDBFyF1qyU.

sorry to bother but where is the palm alone? I see hand with all fingers stl but not alone....thanks

What part to I use for the thumb joint?

Pensé que iba a obtener mejores resultados. No cierra completamente la mano.
Con que relleno se imprime?
Saludos

What's the recommended infill for the fingers?

I have printed this palm a few times now and it's beautiful. However I have been just using the old hinged fingers because I can't get the control cable threaded through. When I try to push the cable through, it just bunches up in the joint cavity of these new fingers. Any thoughts on how to do it?

Out of curiosity, why not make the whole hand print in place? Does the proximal joint move too far for the fila-flex to stretch?

Thanks in advance!

I use a long stiff wire to thread down the channels first and then tie the tendon to this to pull through. A large thick metal paperclip unfolded is perfect.

A print in place hand is viable but it's a big print to fail if the top of the fingers wobble around too much.

Thank you for making, please upload make when finished.

Cheers,
Gyrobot.

@makerbot , Why is this so hard to find with the default search for thingiverse? Sure we can add it to collections and bookmark the page, but this is an awesome design and deserves to be the FIRST results when you search for "Flexy-Hand" or Flexy Hand" or even "E-nable".

Lol, I always use Google (insert favourite search engine) to search Thingiverse.

When robots rule the earth I'll be blaming you for the T-101

I'm guessing the next step would be to weld the fingers onto the hand.

You are really pushing the boundaries of what printers are doing.
This is amazing work.

Beautiful work, as per usual :)
