Want to 3D print parts for e-NABLE devices but not assemble them
If you’d like to 3D print parts for e-NABLE devices and have others assemble them, you are welcome to do so. The current recommended hand designs are the Phoenix v2 Hand and the Unlimbited Phoenix Hand. The current recommended arm design is the Unlimbited Arm v2.1.
Please proceed as follows:
Select a design (see above) and download the necessary STL files
Select a scale (125-150% scale is recommended, as this will fit a wide range of people)
Print all of the parts needed for the selected design. It is recommended to print some extras for the smaller parts (i.e. pins) that can be easily lost.
Place all of the parts in a Zip-Loc bag and label the bag with the following information:
Name of the e-NABLE design (i.e. Unlimbited Phoenix Hand)
Device scale (%)
Feel free to include additional information, such as the % of infill used, layer height, etc.
Include your contact information with the shipment so you can be reached if there are any questions
Ship the finished packages of parts to:
