See it working here!
3D printable kinetic sculpture of a hand tapping its fingers. Based off of various designs I found online. Hand powered via a handle on the right side of the hand. Makes for a cool desktop or fidget toy.
Easy to print and no supports required.
Parts may require scaling to fit together tightly.
Assembly Instructions can be found below.
Sliced using Slic3r Prusa Edition.
All of the parts with the exception of the "Control Gear" can be printed at 0.3 mm layer height.
I recommend printing the "Control Gear" at 0.2 mm layer height or less. See Control Gear section for more information.
Lower layer heights will work fine but probably wont increase the quality or performance by much.
MUST BE PRINTED AT 0.2 MM LAYER HEIGHT OR LESS!
Ensure that you have "Detect bridging perimeters" set to OFF in Slic3r.
There should be a 0.2 mm gap between the handle and the gear.
Do NOT use supports for this piece, or any other piece.
