Sometimes a gesture expresses more than many words. And for those who still find gesticulating with their hands too strenuous: let your 3d printer do the work with these free, pre-made human hand gestures!

Your flower pots lack that certain spice? Then let a zombie hand stick out of the potting soil as if a living dead had hid in it. Your girlfriend stole that last energy drink from the fridge again? Next time you’ll surprise her with a stinky finger posted at the crime scene. You want to tell the rest of the world that you are a huge fan of heavy metal music? Then put a “metal fist”in the rear window of your cart. Or embellish your shelves with these decorative hand gestures from the 3D printer:

These 3D models for the 3D printer were actually created from my rigging experiments with Cinema4D, where a high-resolution 3D model of the human hand served as a basis.

Rigging

“Rigging” or “Skeletal animation” is a technique in computer animation in which a character (or other articulated object) is represented in two parts: a surface representation used to draw the character (called skin or mesh) and a hierarchical set of interconnected bones (called the skeleton or rig) used to animate (pose and keyframe) the mesh.

In fact, the human hand has a certain aesthetic and expressive power. So these gestures are in any case versatile – whether as decoration or to communicate something to the world. Since the models are high-resolution, they can be reduced in size (e. g. as an original key fob) or enlarged. If you print out one of the oversized gestures and spray it additionally with granite effect spray, you get a very appealing eye-catcher for the apartment, which looks as if it was a sculpture made of real granite.

Background Info

Warning! If you want to buy a 3D printer, ensure that there are no children in your personal environment - otherwise you will end up printing kids' toys all the time and nothing else :-) You should also make sure that you are not the only guy around with a 3D printer, otherwise you will end up printing gadgets for the entire circle of friends.

I use Cinema 4D to model my own 3D prints. The finished 3D models are then made "waterproof" and optimized with NetFab so that there are no nasty surprises while printing. I use cura for slicing. In my opinion, the best slicer by far. My experiences with Simplify 3D have sobered me up a lot and let me switch back to Cura because it has a much better mesh import engine.

I usually print with PLA. I can fully recommend the filament from Anet, the manufacturer of the best-selling 3D printers. It's available in many different colors on 1kg coils for ~15 EUR - an unbeatable price compared to other manufacturers, which only offer 800g coils with higher prices and then deliver significantly poorer quality at the same time. Unfortunately the Anet filament is often out of stock due to the high demand, so it is worth ordering a couple of units at once as soon as they are available.
