|project 3D printing cover prosthetic leg [message #55994] Fri, 26 October 2012 18:12 UTC
Hi, I'm an amputee leg and ask for your help to solve a problem. One of the tragedies of un'amputato side and 'look, innocently curious, the people you meet in the visual field, particularly so in the summer and in some places where' necessary to remove the clothes. I personally do not go to the beach, by the pool, or in any place where it should find the leg for about three years. I am perfectly aware that the covers aesthetic elastic foam or worse silicone coatings, which should simulate the human skin, sore hidden and sometimes make it even more 'painful aspect of the prosthesis. It 'much more' healthy and pleasant highlight with a hint of "art" that can not be more 'be replicated. I apologize for this premise in the argument. I found in the network of sites where, by means of 3D printing, you create shells polymers while recreating the remapping body limb amputee, very important for the well-being of the person, do not have the hateful image of the usual standard covers.|
Unfortunately, the producers do not market in Italy and the printing company in 3D prototypes that I found in Italy wants to send a STL file that are not able to produce.
There 'a designer 3D CAD CAM that can deliver the project? Can I send a technical drawing with measures to be applied to the "artsy" I'd settle for just a few bas-reliefs.
Thanks for your attention.

It may be possible to find someone to help you in the thread: 3D modellers for hire. You can look at many portfolios of designers there and email them directly with your request. It may be a faster way to find someone.
If I understand correctly, if you already have an STL file, you can upload it here at Shapeways and we can print it for you directly. Since the links you provide are not actual prosthetics, but just a cover for them, you can choose the WFS material (which can be white, black, blue, pink, red or purple) and it would be suitable for a decorative purpose.
Good luck, I hope you find a designer to help you!
