New wiring design for the hand

I have modified quite a few things on the hand, and so I had to print it all over again with a new forarm. What is very different, is the lining which is much, much more easy than before.

By the way, I created a new tuto with pictures of the forarm and hand assembly. You can find it in tab Assembly/Assembly Help/ Hand and Forarm.

Now the lining and the electrical cables don’t get mixed up and they are very easy to identify all the way through the assembly.

To finalize this, there is now the finger sensors you can download on CubeHero.

I still need to finish the sensors fingers tuto.

    I think it would be easier to just used something like sheathed tendons, I’ve seen some of this made of PTFE tubes ( OD 1mm ID 0.5mm ) with 0.5mm fishing line or beading wire and it works like a bowden cable, it has almost no friction and doesn’t need to be tensioned at all between the fixing points at the start and end, it’s also very flexiable

      I guess, some users could use that instead of the braided fishing line. The only thing I wonder bout is in the rotation gear of the wrist, I’m not sure 10 of these PTFE tubes would let the wrist rotate, I feel it would act as a spring.
      Anyway this new wiring design is only to help new members until I release the new hand design for InMoov, because it won’t require anymore tendons and linings.
