This time we used our society machine the Zortrax M200 to 3D print the design,
And then we proceeded to the Assembly:
So by the end we had the assembled hand:
Kelsie's Surprise Party!
After assembling the hand on the last week of March, we got in touch again with Dave.J. He suggested to come from Wales (2h drive) and meet us in the following weekend even though we suggested that it might be better to send it by post (just in case c:)
While we had only a few days before they come we decided to set up a SURPRISE PARTY FOR KELSIE!, While it was a short notice for people we know and many of our members struggled to come as it is the weekend before handing assignments, the SU bought some party items, Damian.T and Jon.C were available to host/prepare for the event and a dozen of people joined us from the University (THANK YOU!)
By the end, Dave.J, her grandad and Kelsie explained how they tried several prosthetics before and how this design is by far one the best and suitable at the moment.
Well first of all a big thank you to everyone who helped and attended the event and made this possible. We are planning from now on to research and take this to another level by checking other types of prosthetic hands, we recently got in touch with Open Bionics, and we hope to work with them soon to have advanced Bionic Hands that Kelsie and other people can use.
Few hours after the surprise party, Kelsie sent us a video showing her holding a 3D printed grey pikachu that she saw being made live in our event c:
She is mastering it!
Kelsie, thanks for coming and for your letter, you inspired us all !
