I am currently working on my Master's thesis which will be focused on soft robotic gripper research.
I like the design of the gripper you had posted a year ago - http://superreleaser.com/blog/2015/12/1 ... ic-gripper
I looked for the Make book but it doesn't seem to exist yet. I was wondering if you could post the model files for it. It seems like a good starting point.
Also I've been struggling with FEA analysis using Abaqus mostly with errors due to self-contact conditions (for the fast actuating PneuNet actuator from the Soft Robotics Toolkit). Your actuator doesn't have self-contact requirements as the chambers never touch so I was hoping to run the FEA analysis on it and see how that works.
If the model is something you are saving for the book, I understand and I can work on my own design but I wanted to ask before I got started.
Thanks in advance and keep up the good work!
