Leewan@violinist5683 They're Lego parts (ref. 22484 and 6628), you can find them on bricklink, or on Lego Customer Service page, or in sets.
Leewan@Ironclaw3000 I don't think there's any risk. @btfab2003 used a sharpie on his articulated hands (http://shpws.me/PjoS), so perhaps he could tell you if there's any "side effect" for the parts. (:
Leewan@Ironclaw3000 If an axle doesn't fit, you can use a small hobby file to make the hole a bit bigger.
Leewan@nmielak Oh, third option : you buy the parts in White Processed Versatile Plastic, and then you dye it yourself in black. It's certainly the cheapest solution.
Leewan@nmielak No. For some reason, Black Processed Versatile Plastic isn't available. You can either order in Black Natural Versatile Plastic and polish the parts yourself, or order in Black Premium Versatile Plastic ( https://www.shapeways.com/product/V4AZAN8SG/articulated-hand-main-part?optionId=69670570 ) and get a much better finish, but it's much more expensive.
Leewan@loermansw Removed them since I updated the whole hands, which now work with a balljoint system : http://shpws.me/PjoS I kept these parts, as well as the thumb attachment, since they can be used with existing Lego parts, and are a less expensive alternative.
Leewan@fbda65d Sure, order it in white and paint it the colour you want when you receive it.
Leewan@btfab2003 Haha, "potato case thing". The official name is sintershell, but yours works too. ;)
Thanks for your reply, if anyone wants to paint parts, I'll tell them to try with a sharpie, then.
Leewan@btfab2003 Good to know ! It looks like they're (partially ?) painted, did you encounter any issue with the process ?
Leewan@Chronix Some very small changes have been made since then, but you can see them here : https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/85862-constraction-custom-parts/&page=6&tab=comments#comment-2893510
Leewan Update ! I've added holes in the sides of the ballcups to make the assembly of the fingers easier.
Leewan@Jakfan1 Someone recently told me of similar issues. Therefore, I've updated the model with reduced balljoint diameter for the finger parts.
Leewan@Wheeldon15 Sure, you could do that too. If you need any help with that, PM me. (:
Leewan@nmielak My mistake. These products are private, only I can see the product pages for the armours. They're not available to the public because they have several flaws that I haven't fixed yet. I'll just remove the links for now.
Leewan@btfab2003 Okay, here's the version with a pin : http://shpws.me/QAez
And the version with a balljoint : http://shpws.me/QAew
Leewan@btfab2003 The version with a balljoint kinda already exists, it's the part 90612. A version with a pin could be feasible, but I'm not sure I could model it accurately. Will give it a try in the next few days. (:
Leewan@valkinthewarden Well, it depends on what you will do with them. I doubt they will, as long as you simply use them as hands, and not as, let's say bottle openers, but I can't give you a 100% guarantee it will never ever break.
Leewan@Ironclaw3000 Oh so the axle for the gear function remains straight despite the Technic #2 connector not going all the way down ? It's a good news. At first I feared you were talking about the waist articulation, and you were saying the wires that hold the disks didn't bend, which would be a very bad news.
Leewan@Ironclaw3000 What do you mean by "nothing bends" ? The axles holes being too tight or too loose (on the upper torso or the hips) is due to printing orientation and tolerances, so unfortunately, there's not much I can do about that. Thanks for your feedback, though !
