Read how I designed it using OpenSCAD in the blog post: https://medium.com/@urish/designing-3d-printable-mechanisms-in-openscad-5838dcb65b39

What to print?

You will need to print the following parts:
* 3 × fingertip
* 3 × servo-gear
* 3 × servo-trumpet-attachment
* 2 × servo-mount
* 1 × servo-mount-middle
* 1 × rack-right
* 1 × rack-left
* 1 × rack-middle

Or you can simply print everything at once using build-plate.stl.

Required Hardware

  • A trumpet
  • 3 Micro servos (I used TowerPro MG90S)
  • 6 M3x10 screws for mounting the servos
  • 6 M3x30 screws for mounting the mechanism to the trumpet
  • 3 M3x16 screws and 3 M3 nuts for attaching the fingertips to the fingers
  • 3D model format: STL
