Hello,

My name is Natalie Korsavidis and I am the Young Adult Librarian at the Farmingdale Public Library. I am trying to see how I would be able to get kits that my patrons can assemble either as part of a library program or from home. We do not have access to a 3D printer in my building.

Natalie - You could contact ECF or Enable Outreach. They have different requirements, so you may qualify for one of them.

Natalie - I am a science teacher in Brentwood - trying to start my kids in production. Right now I am personally having trouble scaling a hand to build myself. Once I figure that out and get a wrokable hand built, I can provide you with some hands to assemble! I could provide more if you can get your hands on some filament - the consumable part of the three d printer. Aljanbi - I also can have my kids build some for you once I get the scaling figured out!

Did you get your scaling issues worked out? I am certainly no pro but I had no problems scaling with my open sourced software. A simple approach is just to scale in "Slic3r", which is the STL to Gcode software I use. If you are doing parametric scaling, I would be interested in a follow up post on your approach. One can never have too many ways of doing things.

Mike, I can help you figure out the scaling. What software are you using?
Natalie, have you been able to get any kits yet?
Aljanabi, how many of your people still need prosthetics?

There are several good youtube tutorials on scaling hands using Blender:

...probably more

and a playlist covering the complete process:
