The goal of this project was to design a low-cost prosthetic arm that could be manufactured and assembled at any makerspace around the world. The design incorporated best practices from extant 3D printed arm designs and utilized finger and thumb mechanisms that could be printed as full assemblies. The design was made to be parametrically scalable, so it could be appropriately sized for the wearer. Instructions were created to ensure that makers would be able to successfully size, manufacture, and assemble the product.
