    Hi all today I shaped the "fingertips" sections, I wanted them to be narrower near the end but not too much so this is the result.



    Cheers

    Episode 13

    It shows the making of the connector, the backbones bending and a bit of acrylic cutting for the new handle braces



    Cheers

    Episode 14

    You can see a super compressed cut of the 3 days of fingers shaping, the new rear fingers attachment point, and the fixing of the backbone gap



    as for the general situation of the project I'm going to start with the finishing by tomorrow.

    I'm not posting too much updates about it right now for three reasons:

    A) The clock is ticking, and it's getting louder the more we get close to the end of January

    B) I didn't want to show it almost completed but scratched as I think that it ruins the final impression of the project completed

    C) The locking system wasn't as straightforward as I hoped it would be, I didn't like the look of the first locking system even if it worked, now there is a new one simpler but more slender and compact.

    There should be only one more Episode before the final presentation video, maybe two if it's too long for one Episode.

    Maybe I will post a last 3D sketch on twitter so you can see how the fingers are positioned on the completed Hub.

    Cheers

    Thanks a lot Kim :happy:, but I have to admit that a mill would make things a lot easier and faster.

    The 3D sketch I told you about



    I like this configuration a lot more for the fingers, having all of them spreading from about the same point gives the look I wanted and more flexibility on how I can position them.

    I scrapped the fingers shells, they limit the fingers flexibility and cover the details of the fingers sections, I came to the conclusion that the fingers look already interesting and elaborate as it is.

    Have a nice day
