SHEA2

The “Cyborg Beast” hand has been created as a collaboration between Jorge Zuniga, Ivan Owen and Peter Binkley.

All files for this design can be found on Thingiverse, HERE.

Which Files Should I Download and Print?

Currently, the latest version of the Cyborg Beast is v1.45, which has a file name of Cyborg_Beast_1.45_Marc_Petrykowski_07-1-14.zip

The ZIP file can be downloaded directly using the link above. When you open this ZIP file, you will find the following files inside:

  • CB_Finger (bumps) Non-Manifold 1.45.stl
    • This is the distal finger phalange (furthest from the palm). This version has bumps on the finger pads to improve grip surface, but has some non-manifold issues that may cause problems with some slicing software.
  • CB_Finger (no bumps) 1.45.stl
    • This is the distal finger phalange (furthest from the palm). This version has no bumps on the finger pads, but it is fully manifold and should slice cleanly in any slicing software.
  • CB_Gaunt (no tensioner) 1.45.stl
    • This is the gauntlet (the part that fits over the arm) without a tensioner block (in case you want to add a different kind of tensioner).
  • CB_Gaunt (tensioner) 1.45.stl
    • This is the gauntlet (the part that fits over the arm) with an integrated tensioner block.
  • CB_Hex 1.45.stl
    • This is the hex sleeve part that fits into the tensioner block. The non-flexible cords will be attached to these parts, which will then be inserted into the tensioner block and held in place with screws.
  • CB_palm 1.45 (left).stl
    • This is the palm for a left hand.
  • CB_palm 1.45 (right).stl
    • This is the palm for a right hand.
  • CB_Phalange 1.45.stl
    • This is the proximal finger phalange (closest to the palm).
  • CB_Thumb_Finger (bumps) Non-Manifold 1.45.stl
    • This is the distal portion of the thumb (furthest from the palm). This version has bumps on the finger pads to improve grip surface, but has some non-manifold issues that may cause problems with some slicing software.
  • CB_Thumb_Finger (no bumps) 1.45.stl
    • This is the distal portion of the thumb (furthest from the palm). This version has no bumps on the finger pads, but it is fully manifold and should slice cleanly in any slicing software.
  • CB_Thumb_Phalange 1.45.stl
    • This is the proximal thumb phalange (closest to the palm).

 

For a standard Cyborg Beast, you’ll need to print the following:

  • 4 x CB_Finger (bumps) Non-Manifold 1.45.stl OR CB_Finger (no bumps) 1.45.stl
  • 1 x CB_Gaunt (tensioner) 1.45.stl
  • 5 x CB_Hex 1.45.stl
  • 1 x CB_palm 1.45 (left).stl OR CB_palm 1.45 (right).stl
  • 4 x CB_Phalange 1.45.stl
  • 1 x CB_Thumb_Finger (bumps) Non-Manifold 1.45.stl OR CB_Thumb_Finger (no bumps) 1.45.stl
  • 1 x CB_Thumb_Phalange 1.45.stl

  1. So I am new to this site. My son Ryan was born missing the 4 fingers on his left hand. He has his thumb and functions quite well. I have been experimenting with some of these 3D prints but lack the skill set to modify the files seeing that Ryan has his thumb. I am looking to modify Cyborg Beast so that he can use his own thumb along with the Cyborg Fingers. Please let me know how this works. I have a 3D printer and was thinking about just cutting out that part but did not want to ruin the integrity of the devise. Look forward to a reply. Thank you!

    • Hello Jim – we do not have an exoskeleton design ready just yet. There is a team working on it but it is a few months out. 🙂

  5. Hi, getting a 404 page not found for your link to the current download. Cyborg_Beast_1.45_Marc_Petrykowski_07-1-14.zip

  6. The link to the latest version on Thingiverse is not working (past the end of the known Thingiverse). Is there a typo? A better link?

    Thanks!

  7. I am a new 3d printer owner. I have printed a few items without problems. I was wondering if anyone could tell me why when I try printing the cyborg hand my printer, Makergear M2, always drops the bed about 1/4 inch before printing. It keeps printing in the air, of course it is not attaching to the bed and makes a mess. Any help would be much appreciated.
