Strength Test Print 2

The Strength Test Print 2 was designed to compare the strength of a "gauntlet" when printed in it's final form vs printing it flat then thermoforming it. This hastily prepared work in progress was published as yet untested in order for others to begin experimenting.

e-NABLE volunteers Jason Briant and Nicholas Hall have designed a testing protocol to evaluate the strength of prosthetic hands fabricated with 3D-printed parts.

The Strength Test Print 2 takes a Raptor Reloaded gauntlet and it's printed flat version and creates a slice of each in the cross-section that frequent failure occurs.  

Water is gradually added to a bucket suspended from the test piece until the piece fails, then the bucket of water is weighed to determine the strength.
