Re: Need your help and experiences for a project

"It is easier to ask forgiveness, than to ask permission" This saying goes a long way IN SOME PLACES, with regards to some of the items I mentioned about dealing with locals. HOWEVER, it can also get you VERY DEEP into trouble, physical harm, and perhaps even jail. DO NOT move until you KN...

Re: Need your help and experiences for a project

Romain, welcome to the forum! I have yet to receive my Ultimaker 2 and start my first hand, but I did a fair amount of studying before deciding on that printer, and the basic Raptor as a starting point. I'll do a thumbless one as soon as possible. My understanding is you can get 8 hands from one spo...

3D Printer wear parts & consumables

I won an Ultimaker 2 on e-bay (on it's way), and I'm wondering for those of you that have them, what are the "normal" wear parts? I see kits of parts listed on e-bay, and that typically indicates regular replacement required. Also, in regular use, are there any consumables to consider apar...

Invitation to join Google community?

I clicked the link on the e-nable site to go to the Google community, but got a message that I need an invitation to join.

How do I get an invitation?

Thanx in advance.

Re: I want to buy a 3D printer

I was able to buy the almost-new Ultimaker 2 on a re-list at $1,500 (didn't meet reserve the first time).

Printer will be arriving Friday or Saturday, and we'll be getting started.

"Hand-me-downs"

Is there a "hand-me-down" pool for hands that have been outgrown by children, and/or to study the viability of particular hands on specific people? We'd be interested in trying out a hand, AND handing down all of our hands as our 5-year-old son outgrows his. Thanx in advance to any and all...

Re: I want to buy a 3D printer

I'm looking at an Ultimaker 2 to make my son a Robohand. Based on what I'm seeing here, this is perhaps one of the better choices. This will also serve to "bump" an important topic to the front, hopefully to encourage input from formerly frustrated users who can offer shortcuts and updated...

This is a great idea, but can it be made totally waterproof? Like for bathing/swimming?

Re: Accommodating Existing Thumb

woah, awesome. i was about half way through stitching together a raptor, but this is perfect! thanks I'd like to talk about what you've found here. My son has only a finger/thumb on a short palm. The digit does have 1 knuckle, so some opposability, but only a very light pinch. I'd like to see if wh...

Re: Introduce yourself!

Howdy! Another Texan here (south Texas). My name is Paul Zuniga, and our 5-year-old son was born with Amniotic Banding Syndrome, resulting in a short palm and one finger/thumb. The digit is somewhat opposable with one knuckle joint that almost allows a pinch grasp although the palm lacks bone struct...
