1x Right OR Left Palm
1x Normal Gauntlet or Normal Gauntlet w Tensioner
4x Finger Phal
4x Finger w Bumps OR Finger wo Bumps
1x Thumb Phalange
1x Thumb Finger w Bumps OR Thumb Finger wo Bumps

Ulnar/Radial Deviation Hand, Movable Thumb Hand, and Cyborg Arm –> Soon to be released.

Most voluntary closing devices including this design need sufficient wrist movement and strength for proper function. This design doesn’t require Orthoplastic. The fingers are designed for better gripping and to avoid over extension of the proximal phalange and distal finger segment. It fits a 1 to 2 mm cabling and elastic bands.

Assembly instructions can be found on the website
Printing Instructions:
Infill: Depends on age. We usually do 30% infill.
Number of Shells? 2
Temp? Depends on Plastic recommendations. But 230 c is safe estimate for all types.
Speed? For better quality, lower your speed to 60mm/sec extrusion and 90mm/sec for traveling
Orientation: The same as the objects load onto the build plate. We designed the STL files for ease of use so you do not need to change much.
