Note: This post is meant to be a general guideline – just to give the readers an idea of how a 3D printed hand is assembled.
We have heard and read a lot recently about how easy it is to 3D print prosthetic hands. Have you ever wondered how much effort it takes to print and assemble one?
Cyborg Beast is one of many versions of prosthetic hands available to 3D print. Created by a team of researchers at Creighton University, the materials used for printing a Cyborg Beast cost roughly around $50, and can be found at various hardware stores or online. Once the parts are printed, it takes around 2.5 hours to assemble the entire hand.
The material used for printing a Cyborg Beast are:
Polylactide plastic (PLA) and acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) for printing the components.
