I hesitated to start this post, but here goes.
I’ve seen many examples of the ‘living hinge’ approach to produce a two dimensional curve, and the extension of that idea with the leather glove that is also linked to in the ‘Amazing leather cut gloves’ elsewhere in the threads.
Noting that a lot of 3Ders are making various versions of mechanical hands, often aimed at kids who have prosthetic needs for such devices, I wondered if those avenues could meet up in a design for a hand that was generated from a flat surface, rather than separate pieces.
Almost origami meets the living hinge ?
I’m not offering any design, just throwing a pebble into the pond.
