The hand looks pretty good. I think your makerbot could do with a little more dialing in to smooth out the layers a bit. There's some underextrusion in some layers resulting in a slightly jagged look to the device. It's good for testing, but probably not quite smooth enough for a recipient. To help with the fingertips, I can recommend orienting them so that the fingertips where you are printing overhangs are pointed at your cooling fan. Just that small extra bit of cooling will help to smooth out those fingertips. I would also suggest tensioning at a steeper angle. You want the gauntlet to be roughly 40 degrees from the horizontal when everything is tied and tensioned tightly.

Thanks for joining up with the group and let us know if you have any questions!
