I just signed up to attend a free orientation at Blu-Bin tomorrow, which will give me the necessary information about their policies, parameters and products! After reading a mediocre Meetup.com review, I’m not expecting miracles, but at least I should come away knowing what file types Blu-Bin accepts, the different properties of their printed plastic, how they scale models correctly and the general cost of items.
I just got a few more ideas for things to make besides forearm crutches:
- single-footed canes
- four-footed canes
- white canes [for visually impaired people]
- below-the-knee prostheses
- below-the-elbow prostheses
I would really like to create one of the old-fashioned below-the-elbow prostheses with a functional forked hook, but that would require finding a hook. A below-the-knee prosthesis would probably be easier, since it wouldn’t be articulated at the end.
The possibilities are exciting!
