    I have uploaded a two part mould that you can print off and inject flexible sealant (silicon etc) into to make your own hinges. I have included the stl file in the original Flexy-Hand repository and also uploaded as it's own thing here

    one thing i havent seen lately was the use of bicycle brake lines. They don't need to be held under tension like the current model

    That is such a terrific improvement. I was disheartened when so many artificial hand projects lately were still block-hands.

    I get that people want to help, but sometimes it helps to have experienced CAD operators, part modellers and such, because box-hands in 2014 is sad.

    I'm interested in prosthetics, but haven't purchased a printer yet. I had the same ideas you did on the servos to make it work just like a real hand.
