Re: The Phoenix Hand (previously Eagle Hand) fabrication and mechanical function testing

HI Scott, I bought the cords from our local hardware store. I think they're just normal nylon strings which comes in 1.5mm, 2.5mm or 3.5mm size.

Re: The Phoenix Hand (previously Eagle Hand) fabrication and mechanical function testing

Finally I have finished assembling the Phoenix hand at 170%!! The instructions were very clear, so I had no trouble putting together the whippletree tensioner. However, the hand was so big and heavy that I found it rather difficult to operate. Perhaps the elastic bands I used were too tight or the s...

Re: The Phoenix Hand (previously Eagle Hand) fabrication and mechanical function testing

170% thumb with size 3 fingertip grip. Seemed to fit fine even though I had to stretch it a bit.

Will assemble the hand this weekend. Sorry for the delay. Got side tracked by too much work!

Re: The Phoenix Hand (previously Eagle Hand) fabrication and mechanical function testing

I'm rather reluctant to post these photos because I think I had too much support materials printed in the gauntlet and palm...and I think the resistors inside the hotend is slowly dying, which made the temperature fluctuate a bit during printing. Looks like I'm going to spend some time cleaning up t...

Re: The Phoenix Hand (previously Eagle Hand) fabrication and mechanical function testing

So glad I haven't printed the V3 palm yet! I've printed everything else at 170% scale but the palm. Now I can just test print the V4 palm. Great timing! :)

The fingers and thumb are massive at 170% by the way! Will try the fingertip grips when I get back to office again!

Re: The Phoenix Hand (previously Eagle Hand) fabrication and mechanical function testing

I got some different sizes from Amazon last year. They're in different colours as well. Will try them out and let you know :)

Re: The Phoenix Hand (previously Eagle Hand) fabrication and mechanical function testing

Hi Jason, I'm printing the gauntlet at 170% right now. It looks fine. The palm however may be a bit of issue with support structure inside the channels for strings. The shape of the channels has a flat ceiling, which result in support structure to be added in S3D. It's not possible to turn them off ...

Re: The Phoenix Hand (previously Eagle Hand) fabrication and mechanical function testing

Hi, I just discovered this new hand design on e-Nable Google+ community. I can't wait to print the hand out and test the new knuckle joints and the gripper box! I've got a Rostock Max v2 printer that can print pretty big stuff. If no one is printing the 160% or 170% hand, I'd like to give it a crack...
