Raptor Claw - Feedback welcome

Postby franciscofernandez » Sun May 10, 2015 7:03 pm

This is an Add-on for the Raptor reloaded, is a part that screws on the side of the palm so you can have an optional opposable thumb. I called the the ´Raptor Claw´
For certain objects, like cylindrical, is a better position and improves grip a lot. It can also be removed or changed back to the original position easily.

Here is a video of it grabbing some stuff. It also has the gripper box 3.0, (also on this forum) that complements it magnificently by allowing it to close all the fingers all the way around objects.

Next step is getting the right screws (the ones I have now are too long)

You can see the Raptor claw and you can even edit it if you wish here: https://tinkercad.com/things/bcMFlJkVCjC

I want to print this! It's just like the old double thumb Cyborg Beast I've had forever(I used 2 thumbs for even extra grip). Thank you for doing this. I've always missed the underthumb for the Raptor Reloaded. The link should take you to a picture of what we had.


Where can I get the files?
