The Raptor Adaptor v1.0 is step one by the e-NABLE Laboratory at the Rochester Institute of Technology in creating a modular system for assessing variations in prosthetic design. The modular system will ease comparison of new inventions, as well as the modularity of parts may also expedite transferring new technology into functioning prosthetics which is fabricated by e-NABLE volunteers. Description
The 3D-printed Raptor Hand can slip into the Raptor Adaptor with no changes to the printed portions of the hand. The assembly is held together by a set of miniature (#4 x 1/2 inch) screws that usually hold a leather palm to the hand. On the other hand, rubber bands and the tendons may be strung in the newest modular system in ways that are revolutionary.
Subsequently the hand assembly slides onto the PVC tube that's employed as a forearm in the traditional RIT arm. A 1/8inch hole is drilled into a hole printed a peg or screw can securely the arm assembly together, in the adaptor so the tube through
The STL file is sized for a 100% (modest size for a 6-year old kid) Raptor Hand v2.2. The 28mm hole fitting the PVC conduit will need to be resized when the adaptor is scaled for bigger hands (until a parametric layout is made in Handmatic.)
