My prosthetic finger

Post by jeeplvr » Fri Feb 07, 2014 10:10 am

Lost part of my fingert a year or so ago. I came up with this as a replacement. It works realy well and I can actually use my finger again.

FANTASTIC!
Great work, thank you for sharing, cannot wait to see what you create next.
Really great work!
What program did you model it in?

Thanks, I use Solid works. I have tried many other programs but I allways come back to Solidworks. In my opinion it creates the best stl files I have ever seen.
I have a couple of finger designs for partial replacements. I have outfitted a couple of people with my finger prosthetics and they seem to like it.

Nice!
I use SW also here at work and can use it at home too.
I prefer a non-history CAD modeler but work with what they make me.

Very innovative. A great design. But I hope I never need to make one.

I registered and thus my first post is just to say Well Done and Congratulations on the Gizmodo article!

I can't help but imagine all the attachments you could make for it, the thing that popped into my head was a ratched hex wrench for getting screws into tight spaces!
