Building a flexihand from Steve Wood

Postby Jonathan louis » Fri Apr 14, 2017 10:01 am

Hi there, I'm Jonathan in London UK.
Im trying to get involved and create a hand to get enabled certified and start helping.
I have access to a couple printers and have almost completed the first prototype.
I would love to talk to others who have created this model and work out optimum print setting and configurations.
I don't know how to attach pictures of my prototype here but can ping them to anyone interested.
Please let me know if you have any experience in making these assistive devices and your story as a maker and helper.
Many thanks.
Jonathan

Hi Jonathan!

It's great that you want to help and be involved. I havent made a flexihand but I have made an UnLimbited Arm (V2) http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1672381

Could you share with us the settings that you're using and how your build is going? Be sure to include the printer you're using, the filaments you're using, the model, the slicer and all relevant settings.

You should be able to attach images by either dragging them into the message box/editor as you make your post OR clicking the "Attachments" tab underneath the editor then clicking the "Add files" button OR hosting them on an external site (like imgur) and including the image url on the page.

I'm looking forward to hearing about your progress!
