My Robotic Grabber files are used as Example .STL files in their 3DP Software

UPDATE:

They used it for the example .STL files in their 3D-Printing Software …

Had no idea I was nominated, nor did I know until today was given the award …  With that said … I would like to thank GrabCAD for creating a website whereby people from all over the world can share & view CAD designs.

The reason I made this 3D-Printed robotic claw was an experiment to use parts 3D printed for one design on other future designs … Hence, the parts from the claw with 2-Jaws can be used to create the 5-Jaw Robotic Claw.

I enjoy making designs whereby individuals can print something small, and then later they can move onto a larger project with more parts, and use the previous parts in the next project … Saving 3D-Printing Time & Filament!

I modified the design to add the AFINIA logo since that is the 3D Printer I use … Not sure if AFINIA is using the files to share with others but you are more than welcome to download the .STL files from GrabCAD.com
