Print Your Mind: A wearable Third Hand
A helping hand in difficult times
Especially in times of a pandemic, when you don’t always have another person around to assist you, a mechanical helping hand can be particularly useful. That is why Sintratec 3D Operator and scientific draughtsman Tomy designed 3D this extraordinary wearable third hand. Subsequently 3D printed – on the Sintratec S2 system – and assembled, it is now used for all kinds of craft work in our in-house production.
One part – multiple materials
Tomy also made use of the material variety that the S2 system offers: The wrist brace and the various tool attachments were laser sintered from stable Sintratec PA12 Nylon and therefore robust – while the wrist strap was 3D printed with Sintratec TPE, keeping it flexible and adjustable to the wearer’s arms. As tools his current version includes a flashlight mount, an extendable cable holder, as well as an alligator clip.
