After having separated out the individual bones from the hand scan, I decided to print a couple of copies of the middle finger from metacarpal to distal phalange.
Preparing the phalanges for print was undertaken without drama in AoI by using a single block and boolean operations to slice each phalange into lower and upper halves.
The next step involves the printing of flexural joints and ligaments in polypropylene to the ABS bones. Hopefully, the attachment of the ligaments to the bone will be simplified by the use of a special adhesive that I've located. That is on order and should arrive early next week.
