Below are screenshots of the pieces I have ordered to be printed to make the prosthetic hand. e-NABLE calls this particular hand the Cyborg Beast hand. The files for this hand were designed by Jorge Zuniga as STL files. I am going to be making a right hand with the following pieces.
Used for: This part is know as the “Hex” which is the sleeve part that fits into the tensioner block. The non-flexible cords will be attached to these parts, which will then be inserted into the tensioner block and held in place with screws. Quantity needed: 5.
Used for: This part is known as the Phalange. This is the proximal finger phalange (closest to the palm). It is the connection between the palm and the finger. Quantity needed: 4.
Used for: This is the gauntlet. The part that fits over the arm, with an integrated tensioner block. This is the piece that supports the rest of the hand, without it there wouldn’t be any attachment to the arm. The tensioner block is the top “block” that has holes in it, shown above. Quantity needed: 1.
Used for: This is the distal portion of the thumb (furthest from the palm). The bumps on the end of the thumb are there to improve grip surface. You can buy clear finger grips from e-NABLE that go over the fingers but I have decided to add them to the actual fingers like what was required before these new finger grips were invented. Quantity needed: 1.
Used for: This is the proximal thumb phalange (closest to the palm). It is the connection between the palm and the thumb. Very similar to the finger phalange but instead altered to fit the thumb. Quantity needed: 1.
Used for: This piece is the palm for a right hand. This is what most of the pieces will be directly attached too. Quantity needed: 1.
