Don’t mess with the Z Hand – Doorstop #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Im_Print shares:

Modeled this in Zbrush. I then printed this in Colorfabb nGen Flex at .20 layer height with full support. Functions incredibly. looks great the supports gave the palm down version a charred sort of finish that actual adds to the grip. with the palm down version your z height will be at the top of the wrist so you can measure the space under your door and adjust accordingly as the part flexes you want it slightly bigger than the gap. ive also printed this palm up in pla and it was flawless although i have smooth floors it did not grip enough to work for me but with carpet it would. Can also be stood up in a flower pot or garden. Happy Printing. Cheers.

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!
