Sizing Problems

Postby morganmarsh » Fri Aug 28, 2015 3:36 pm

I am having some trouble with the sizing of the gauntlet for my client. The pivot appears to be fitting too tight, but it gradually gets larger as it travels up the arm and is fitting too big in that area. I know the obvious answer is to add more padding, but I was wondering if someone could recommend a way to change the STL to customize it for my client.

Hi morganmarsh!

While the obvious answer is "more padding", it's probably not the best one.

Looking at the curves in that design, it looks like you're using the Raptor Reloaded. If the bracer flares out too much, if recommend using the straighter bracer from the Raptor Classic. The bracers sounds be compatible.

If you're feeling adventurous, the leather based bracers on the Ody and Talon hands are very easy to fit to unique anatomy. As a user of those types of bracers, if highly recommend that style. The leather is actually very easy to use, and very comfortable.

I break hands and then tell you how I did it.

The solution is use a thermo-formed gauntlet, far more comfortable and much better fit. ... 20Gauntlet
