Summary

Need a hand model? Are you a poor artist that can barely afford the next packet of Ramen Noodles? Is the art school you’re going to making you pay ridiculous prices for stuff like this? Can’t get a grip on why these things cost so much?

Screw them ! Bribe a friend who has a 3D Printer to print you a hand!

Point out things in style!

Or you can just set it on your desk and let it hold stuff?

Anyway wanted a challenge.. Hands are tough to make.. Enjoy the hand.

NOW the hand in the image is at 50% scale. If you print it at 100% you will get a full sized hand. Which is great if you needed it to be that big. SO PAY ATTENTION!!
I made 100% sure that the smaller one was easy to glue together. So the bigger one should be a snap. The knuckles will need to be glued and vised while they dry but other than that the rest is really easy. No sanding required unless your printer sucks.

Instructions

At 50% scale you need a 1/16 drill bit to clear out the holes for 1.8 PLA spikes. And youll need 3/8 Washers on the balance arm – 1/4 screw for the base arm.

at 100% you can use 3mm PLA spikes. The base will be huge and I doubt it will function because the hand will be pretty heavy..

I print these with support .. they came out a little cleaner.

.15 layer height with a very slight infill. I would use 2 outer walls for tooling the holes. 2 solid layers helps also.
