Fire Gauntlet (unpainted)

Fire Gauntlet (unpainted) 3d printed Art Sculptures
The Fire Gauntlet is an articulated hard-shelled glove, 3D printed all at once, fully assembled. The model is based on a 3D scan of my hand, with a 1.5mm clearance between the scanned surface and the printed model to allow for a Nomex cloth lining. Ideally the final design would be in stainless steel, but there are many challenges to making that happen. This prototype is a good start.

This version is only for display and is bonded to the production frame. It was printed using White Strong & Flexible material, painted and mounted on a wooden base.
cm: 16.396 w x 22.596 d x 5.824 h
in: 6.455 w x 8.896 d x 2.293 h


So lemme get this straight...this is a glove that one can wear, fully articulated, of your own hand. If I am right, then that is pretty badass!

Wait, so this thing could actually be worn? I mean once you figure out a few details? That is brilliant! I would totally buy one if you do! Well, if it fits me that is XD

The first version shown here is intended mostly as a display concept, but yes, that is one of many design issues to consider with this project. I could be working on this for a while!

The trick will be getting your hand into it ;)
