    Instead of buying new hands for him I decided to just make a set since I already have a 3d printer and the design can be used on other figures. All the parts just snap on together except for the top part of the hand.

    That is awesome. Great job. Love the print design for the fingers, printing all of the moveable joints already joined together. Very clever.

    Thanks, but that failed and didn't work with my printer so I had to separate them again. If the fingers were bigger it would have worked but at this size it would just fuse. The other types of printer would have worked too as they can print the parts more precisely with a laser or uv light. At least it was still easy to snap together and assemble all the pieces.

    Fair enough. I've had similar issues with mine too. Just thought you'd managed to crack the code :) 
    Still a great print though. Why pay for 3P hands when you can do this yourself for a fraction of the cost.

    Yep, if I had to buy new hands then it would also add to the cost of the figure and I'd rather add that money to other figure purchases. Modelling and printing one is more fun plus I can use the design on other figures that i plan to make. I was able to get rid of all the print lines and now it looks smooth. Also all the joints aren't floppy and won't come loose after assembling all the fingers together. I once tried to make a smaller one but failed due to the balls not forming properly but a larger ball reduces the issue.

    Very cool. I'll always be jealous of those who can create and print their own designs.
