Cyborg Beast 3D Printed Prosthesis: Assembling and Testing

Cyborg Beast 3D Printed Prosthesis

I’m going to start this post by giving a big thanks to the great work of those who contributed to the Cyborg Beast 3D printed prosthesis design, including Jorge Zuniga, Frankie Flood, Ivan Owen, David Orgeman, and others in the e-NABLE community.

One of the most exciting things going on in 3D printing these days is what’s happening with 3D printed prosthetics. In particular, the e-NABLE community, a group of 500 people and growing, is working to continually evolve the available options for low-cost 3D printed prosthetics. These talented folks from around the globe are creating designs that anyone can produce and assemble, wherever needed.

As a demonstration of this, here is a video of me assembling a Cyborg Beast 3D printed prosthesis for the first time. I have no background in prosthetics or mechanical engineering, so if I can do this, anyone can.

  1. Great site and am looking forward to making these on my Prusa i3, just a quick question, did you print your palm with support

    • I do print the palm with support, but you may be able to get away with no support. If you print with support, it can be tricky to get the support material out of the cable channels. I use Simplify3D, which allows me to place supports under the palm but keep the cable channels clear of supports.
