How to make 3D Printed Xenomorph Hands

James Bruton from XRobots released an awesome update on his progress to make a full body Xenomorph suit with 3D printing and traditional fabrication techniques.

This is part 2 of my scrap metal inspired / Steampunk Alien Xenomorph project, all custom designed and 3D printed on a Lulzbot TAZ.

James demonstrates how he used Autodesk 123D Design to design the parts for the fingers and used Ninjaflex to create a flexible joint for cobbling the fingers together.

Download the parts for this project on XRobots.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
