Aww man awesome! Just what I was looking for. I'm going to add some movement sensors and then program a nice sequence for my guests :-))))

I'm glad you like it ;-)

Hi, Great model! I'm about to try to print it and just wondering how you did it? I was thinking it may need PETg to be hard wearing but any particular fill or shell settings?

Thanks! I updated the print settings.

First of all great project, I was planning to build a bionic prosthetic arm for a friend, The only problem is that I don't have any idea how to attach to my friend's hand. Would you plz help me out. And yeah I also forgot that my friend need a left hand and your project is a right hand.
How would I do that too, expecting a reply as soon cuz it's my final year project.

I'm sorry, but I currently don't have time for that. I'm in the middle of my exams right now.

Thanks for this awesome project. I've printed it and now i'm in assembling phase.

I'm glad you enjoy the project. Be sure to post a make when you finish your bionic hand ;-)

Hey, this is a really great project! Can I just ask, where did you find info/materials on making the mold? Any help would be appreciated!

Hello, I got most of my info from this youtube chanel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCr8fE7gPYp1mWszA8JuldVw . She works a lot with silicone molds and uses plastigel 10 a lot. She has some great tutorials on how to make a realistic looking silicone hand.

Great to see someone working on this.

Thank you SirSunshine!

Professional looking robot hand, thanks for sharing!
Reminds me to the Robonaut 2 hand :)
Is the finger sideways movement controlled by a servo?

Thank you very much, no problem and yes the fingers sideways movement is controlled by a servo. The hand has 7 servo’s in total. 4 for the 4 fingers, 2 for the thumb and 1 for the fingers sideways movement.

The wrist and lower arm sections are not included in the download files.

Thanks for mentioning I will add them now.

I see you also included the Stand, Thank you.

You're welcome ;-)
