Hinge Joint Test ($3)

Hinge Joint Test ($3) 3d printed Seasonal Father's Day Description

A test of a slightly pressurised hinge joint for a knee or similar.

I'm hoping that the little pressure at the joint will allow for it to maintain poses and hold weight

Highly cost effective with a simple 'form follows function' philosophy

Great work! I ordered you design and played with it. The Hinge moves very smoothly, with a nice bit of friction to keep position. I love how minimal the rotation around all the axes other than the hinged axis is. Very impressed. Since the order volume is 1x element, but the renderings show 3 elements, it would maybe be a good idea to state that explicitly or use a different rendering.

Looks like a good start for a Stikfas alternate.

Those look like an excellent start to a little robot. Very cool design!

I love it the structure is nice and i like the way you reinforced certain areas.... have you tried stress testing it ? it feels like the only failing point might be where the joints connect ... :)
