What will it do?

I will do a hand wit 3D printer and servomotors to imitate the human hand movement. This hand will be in an acrylic box.

Who’s done what beforehand?

In Fab Academy I saw two projects where a hand is be used, the first project is to rehabilitation hand by Roberto Moya and the other one is a bionic hand to person with physical disabilities by Prashant Gade.

What will you design?

I will design the hand, pcb circuit and acrilic box.

What materials and components will be used?

Quantity Material Description
02 3D filament PLA
01 Acrilic 90cmx60cm
01 fishing line spool

Quantity Component Description
02 microcontroller ATmega328p
05 servomotors 90cmx60cm
02 ESP01 Comunication Wifi
05 Flex sensor Resistive sensor
02 Power supply Supply 5Vdc

Where will come from?

I have all components and materials.

How much will they cost?

Quantity Material Description Cost
02 3D filament PLA $ 50.00
01 Acrilic 90cmx60cm $ 25.00
01 fishing line spool $ 7.00

Quantity Component Description Cost
02 Microcontroller ATmega328p $ 10.00
05 servomotors 90cmx60cm $ 125.00
02 ESP01 Comunication Wifi $ 10.00
05 Flex sensor Resistive sensor $ 90.00
02 Power supply Supply 5Vdc $ 25.00

What parts and systems will be made?

I will made the hand, pcb circuit, acrylic box. I will design the software.

What processes will be used?

I will use 3D printer, laser cut, CNC PCB (monofab).

What questions need to be answered?

I consider that I have the necessary knowledge to complete my final project.

How will it be evaluated?

Comparing the movement of the manufactured hand with the human hand.
