    Hi. I'm currently working on a robot hand and I'm interested in if anyone tested the strengths of wires printed in Strong and flexible?

    I have a design that uses 4-3mm wires, and a Theo Jansen model that are approx 1.8mm, but that is rather hard to test without breaking. Does anyone have experience using approx 2mm wires, for push/pull uses?

    Oh whilst I'm asking, anyone have practical experience of designing living hinges?
