Forearms and Shoulders
The Forearms and Shoulders form their own rigging assembly that attaches securely to the arms while each side connects to the other via central cross strap that forms a yoke that prevents the entire assembly from slipping down the arms.
Forearms: The Forearms utilize a two piece "Clam Shell" design that allows the user to insert their hand through the Forearms without having to oversize the grieves as one would have to for a closed wrist. The Forearm plate then fits over the opening by gently securing to a hinge point in the wrist and securing into the upper forearm using a small flexible locking mechanism similar to what appears in the backs of TV remotes.
Both the Forearm Plate and the main Forearm body features a channel to allow for an internal strap with hidden buckle assembly to secure the Forearm to the arm.
Lastly, the Elbow Cover is printed separately to allow for a easy painting/sanding separate from the main Forearm body. Additionally this allows the Forearm to be printed more easily, with the wider portion now able to touch your printer's build plate.
The Elbow Cover also features a bar spanning the width of the internal cavity. This allows the entire forearm to be fastened to the shoulder plate above it to ensure the forearm does not slip down the arm. This is meant to work together with the internal forearm strap for maximum security.
Shoulders: The Shoulders feature a hinged two-part design that allows the shoulder to flex as the arm moves around. The bottom of the shoulder is held in place by a locking key that completes a circular cavity that allows the shoulder to freely rotate about about its hinge arm.
