Mechanical Hand Final by Loone-Wolf Mechanical Hand Final by Loone-Wolf
Back breaking work and fixes and airbrushing at total of approx 35 hours... -_- i'm tired...

This represents my hand, it is human hand which is humanoid mode and i love working with mechanical stuff that represented by the non-humanoid mode, i like it so much that it feels like my hand working non stop just like one of them XP

Wish me luck to showcase this on an exhibition.

Anyway... there's the final version of it, enjoy.
Template will be released as soon as PDO files are fixed.

 PDO has no flaps, so i dont know how did you glue/joint it?,
you add pieces of paper inside?, or use tape?

I'm thinking in scale up the hand, how big is once full mount?

Yes, it uses paper inside the model, between seams. I usually use that way of gluing to make the model looks more neat and didn't show much seam when i paint it. You can scale it up to any size, but usually i use the default scale, which is around 32cm (stretched finger to base).

Thanks for answering so fast

I supossde you joint it that way, it makes joints at same level, (using flaps one always go avobe the other).

I'll try the default size first, if parts are too small I'll scale up.

No problem,

Yes i always made all my papercraft models that way, a bit harder but i'm okay with that.

Okay, the model should be easy enough to assemble at default size but feel free to scale it up if you feel like you need to and good luck. :)

I wonder could this hold any weight, like for holding something without breaking?

Truly an amazing design! And the model looks exquisitely well built. How did the exhibition go?
I downloaded the PDO, will take a shot at it when I get some time, it deserves the dedication required to get it built right!
Two questions:
-Would you say that the piece distribution in papekura could be used to print in different shades/colors of paper to get a good color design without airbrushing afterwards?
-What type (weight) of paper did you use or would you recommend for this model?
Thanks, and congratulations again!

Thank you very much! :) the exhibition was very successful IMO, I'll wait for the shots :). And, the pepakura file i've uploaded does not have any color, so if you intend to color it, i'm affraid you have to use manual method such as airbrush or print it on a colored paper or more extremely use brush! The type of paper i use is Bluish White carton with around 200-220 gsm thickness. Hope that helps, and good luck to you! :D

I'm really confused...
Were these made with paper or on-screen? :o

Loone-Wolf Featured By Owner May 12, 2012  Professional General Artist
firstly on screen, then i printed it on paper, then make it into it's originally intended shape. The 3D software i use to design this is Google Sketchup, then use pepakura to unfold it..

I have checked on you for so long, I thought this was 3D thou. That's not easy to be made out of paper, did you use wire on the joints? Congrats on DD man.

Thank you very much and for the fav too :D! nope, i didn't use any wire, it's totally made out of pure paper, 100%! :) Never thought i won a DD...

that's what made it difficult, paper is the hardest material for joint.

:iconloone-wolf:
Loone-Wolf Featured By Owner May 2, 2012  Professional General Artist
agreed, experimented on hundreds of them, used couple of materials, still... i haven't found a solution to create an ultimate durable and firmly adjustable joints...

:iconmyname1z4xs:
myname1z4xs Featured By Owner May 3, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
Usually joints made from paper was just a simple fold that provide a flexible hinge, like the box tops. It is hard to make a discreet joint, may be you can try woods or harder paper, also waxing may be useful. I understand you cannot directly construct volume like other materials, you have to close the surface.

:iconloone-wolf:
Loone-Wolf Featured By Owner May 3, 2012  Professional General Artist
Yes, i will experiment on more joint types and more material as soon as i have more time, it is difficult to replicate the actual joint, well, thicker paper might do the trick plus some high friction material...

Nice work! Is this just made of paper? It doesn't look anywhere near one because its clean.

:iconloone-wolf:
Loone-Wolf Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2012  Professional General Artist
It is made of paper entirely, and i can guarantee you that, it looks clean cause i painted it with airbrush, with poster color as it's paint that gives it a smooth almost resin/pvc like appearance.

It's a model, but you can move it just like a real finger, with the differences, being, those fingers' length are adjustable.
