Maker of the Months

February 2015 Maker of the Month Winner

Kyle Takeuchi/Maker Club
Prosthetic Hand
3D Printer

Kyle Takeuchi 3D printed the individual components for the prosthetic hand using the MakerBot Replicator 2X. The parts were designed and printed to connect together and still have the flexibility to have movement at the joints. Once the hand was assembled, cords were run through the hand allowing the user to extend and contract the fingers.
