It's been my dream for a while now to make a prosthetic hand that is highly adaptable and yet mechanically sound. I've been using Fusion 360 for this task and below is an embedded link to a very basic test.

With these sorts of parametric systems it is very easy to get lost or put parameters in the wrong places. Hence I am ensuring that certain basic elements work before I start to get fancy with nice organic designs.

A reminder that I am still running a gofundme campaign for Hollies Hand. The above work I am doing is also connected to my prosthetics work. By having such a flexible hand design system I can make a hand that fits a scanned hand as opposed to fitting the mechanics to each individual hand manually (or more manually anyway).

Here is Hollies hand fundraising page.
