Muchas gracias por compartir este diseño. Esta genial!!

Mientras escribo esto se esta imprimiendo mano.stl en ABS translucido y creo que va a quedar buenisimo.
Saludos desde Argentina.

Wow, this is a really fun model, thank you!
I have made a small addition to your model, a cap to close the wrist, hiding the elastic bands. You can find it here:
If you want you can add it to your model files. I really appreciate your design!

Endcap for Jointed Hand model

I'm currently working on a project for a technology competition coming up in the next few weeks where my team and I are designing an EEG prosthetic arm. The main thing we are struggling with is finding a proper hand and we believe this one would be absolutely perfect! However, in order to use it, we will need to make some slight modifications that I am unable to make without the CAD part files. So, if there is any way you could possibly sent me the part files it would be greatly appreciated!!
Thank you for helping us!

The only problem with this is that it's inaccurate. Your hand IS fingers, just covered with skin. However, it's a cool design. Definitely worth printing.

Well I don't suppose you could print skin, or then you wouldn't have any problem right? Well it turns out that you can.

Do you know if somebody could port this to something like a prosthetic hand? Something like the ones that e-NABLE has designed? I've been creating a Cyborg Beast, and I was looking around and I saw this. Do you think someone could do that? If you wanted me to, I could probably create a low-resolution version for people without hands.

ANULAR_01 is giving me problems. Not sticking. Keeps coming back off. A version of this with more supports would be better. I do have sticking problems, though.

do you use just plane string or what do you use to connect fingers???

Here it says:
"•Aproximadamente 1,5 m de cordón elástico (2 mm de grosor)"
I don't speak Spanish but I think it means "about 1,5 m of elastic cord (of 2mm thickness)

Is it possible to have an .stl file with multiple pieces of the fingers in addition to individual files for each one? If not printingn larger multiple pieces coudl easily be printed at once to cut on time.

What is the size of each finger or all of the hand? can you give me the exact scale? for mm or inch? thank you. I'm using cube pro trio

Are the pieces just attached with elastic or something similar?

Would it possible to get the thing files without the supports? Supports make the hand impossible to print on Dimension 1200es printer.
Thank you very much for the great work anyway!

Super easy print and super easy assembly...just awesome!
