    I tried importing your 3d files to my CAD, Rhinoceros V5 for Win, but they works not perfectly. 🙁

    By using a STEP, some of solid bodies are not “close” i.e. they have nakid edges. (It’s dou to that Rhino has no tlerance value option with importing STEPs, I think.)
    Additionaly, a few of surfaces are compleatly deformed.

    Most of these errors could be manually repaired, but is there any ideas to increase import qualities??

    From an IGES, on the other hand, all of solids are exploded into individual surface elements, and Rhino doesn’t support a Parasolid to import.

    I can also use NX in my office. A parasolid file is perfectly imported. 🙂
    (Some of sketch lines remain in a file, but it doesn’t matter .)

    Thank you for posting precious information!

    >is there any ideas to increase import qualities??
    Sorry, i don’t have good idea. Could you please try Fusion 360?
    It can be used in both Mac and Windows for free if it is personal use.
    In my test, almost all parts can be imported by Fusion 360 via parasolid and step files.

    (except for HBarmMountBaseCover02 at wrist. Maybe it is because original data has a problem. I will fix it soon.)

    I know this is not perfect solution for Rhinoceros users, but I think if users can try to import the data from Fusion 360 to Rhinoceros by themselves, this problem will be solved more faster.

    By the way, we are using
    ・Inventor Professional 2015
    ・fusion 360
    ・Geomagic Design2014
    We can upload any formats that these CAD can export.
    Please tell us if you have a request.

    Hi everyone,

    I would like to get the Inventor version of the model.
    By the way, I did not find the way to read the readme.md file; if it is a text file, would it be possible to get a .txt or .doc version of it aswell?
    Are there recommandations about the printers to use to create such myo-electric arm?
    Thank you for this great work!



    Hiroshi Yamaura


    README.md can be read in github website. You can also read .md file by using atom which is distributed by github. I will upload .txt file soon.
    (2015-05-31 Added: README.md can be opened in notepad.exe. If you need .txt file, please rename README.md and save it.)

    I uploaded inventor files to develop blanch. Please check them.

    I’m using UP! Plus 2 printer. Its quality is very good.

    Hi, I have a problem, for get a list of materials for the hackberry.
    I live in Mexico .


    Hiroshi Yamaura

    Hi MoldiTuxTuxtepec,
    I’m sorry for late response.
    I’ve just uploaded the BOM to develop branch.
    Please see HACKberry_BOM_v1.xlsx(HACKberry/HACKberry-hardware/).


    MoldiTux Tuxtepec

    Very thanks Hiroshi Yamaura, For the software in the smartphone, We need a license ?, where can i download?


    Hiroshi Yamaura

    We don’t use a smartphone for HACKberry. Maybe you saw our video that we use the smartphone for EMG signal analysis. That prototype is different from HACKberry.


    MoldiTux Tuxtepec

    I’m thinking about buying all electronic and bolts (items 47-72 in HACKberry_BOM_v1.xlsx). Can you quote me the cost? , Can you ship to Mexico?


    Hiroshi Yamaura

    Sorry, we don’t have a plan to selling such kind of kit. Although we may sell the kit in the future, we can’t deal with it for now.


    Hiroshi Yamaura

    I updated iges, step and parasolid data in the github.

    The problem about the surface error at the wrist part mentioned #post-125 is solved.
    Please use step data for Fusion 360.


    Chengji Xu

    who could tell me how to download the file”HACKberry_v1.igs”46.5M. it shows”This file has been truncated, but you can view the full file.” but after i clicked, it can not be downloaded.


    Hiroshi Yamaura

    Hi Xu,
    Thank you for joining.
    Try to right click the “RAW” button and select “Save the link as…”.
    I also write the article how to download the data.


    Chengji Xu

    Thankyou ひろし やまうら~
    broken surface
    And I shall say there are bugs in the igs and stl files too if you open with solidworks.
    But I will download inventor later. Then that wont be a problem,I think.

    Oh, thanks. These information and images are helpful since we don’t have solidworks.
    It seems HBejectorLever02 and HbPowerLever05 are lost. I’ll check it.
