Bonus Model: Decoratively Carved Flexy Hand

A project log for 3D Scan to Custom Soft Prosthetic Hand

Model and 3D print a mold to create a silicone rubber "skin" lattice for an easy to make custom prosthetic hand that matches your 3D scan

The articulation geometries of the 3D printed parts in my silicone skin prosthetic hand are based directly on the "Flexy Hand 2" model by Steve Wood (http://enablingthefuture.org/upper-limb-prosthetics/the-flexy-hand/).

I liked the Flexy Hand model so much I decided to give it an artistic twist and do some carving in Blender. I uploaded a carved version as a ready to print STL model file: "modified_artistic_flexy_hand_prosthetic_print.stl". It is too big to store on Hackaday so you can find it in the "MODELS" directory of the project GitHub repository (https://github.com/curtpw/silicone-skin-prosthetic-hand)
