PLEASE NOTE: While the Raptor Reloaded has been a very popular design for the e-NABLE community, it is no longer recommended for use, other than for testing/research purposes. Testing has shown that the gripping capabilities of this design are not as good as more recent e-NABLE designs.
The currently recommended e-NABLE hand designs are the Phoenix v2, Unlimbited Phoenix, or Osprey.
The Raptor Reloaded is an updated release of the original that incorporates feedback from the e-NABLE community and has CAD design source files available in STEP, IGES, IPT, and F3D formats.
Updates in the 12-17-14 release include:
-- Improved print-ability due to custom modeled supports
-- Cyborg Beast compatible sizing
-- Improved dovetail geometry
-- New tensioner retention clip
-- Easier to use tensioner pins
-- Low profile elastics with two tie-off options
-- More access to elastic and flexsor routing channels
-- Debossed versioning information on palm and gauntlet
-- Slimmer, more anthropomorhpic fingers
-- Narrower knuckle block
-- More intuitive assembly (new one-way proximals)
-- Thorough documentation and modular design
-- Source files in native Fusion 360 format, also STEP and IGES
-- Additional velcro-mounting options as well as traditional velcro loop and leather options
-- Re-oriented snap-pin head recesses to improve printability
-- Knuckle pins are now removable, making the hand easy to repair and upgrade
-- Strengthened tie-bars on finger tips
