Thingiverse - Anatomic Human Foot
Freesider's are evermore professional printistas of sorts. As our sprints are ramping up, there seems to be a growing interest in "organic modeling". Things often found in nature fall into this category for CAD artists.
Here is a recent Thingiverse upload, which was made from some very simple modeling techniques in Newtek's Lighwave 3D application. A little goes a very long way, indeed.
There are 26 proper bones in the human foot; 28 if you consider the sesamoids of the 1st metatarsal phalangeal joint complex. That's over 25% of your body's total musculo-skeletal anatomy, hitting the ground every time you go for a walk or run! Quite impressive, really.
This anatomic foot model was designed in Newtek's Lightwave 3D, as part of the podcast @ YouTube.com/DrGlassDPM
Anatomic study models can be quite expensive, search.anatomywarehouse.com/search?keywords=foot&x=0&y=0 so I wanted to share my printable version with the Thingiverse crowd and give a big shout out to Freeside Atlanta's Hackerspace!
InstructionsI've included the individual bones with a straightforward naming convention. These parts will be replaced, as I continue to add more detail and such; for now, enjoy!
Additionally, there are FootBones.stl and FootSkin.stl, for those of you Duel Extruding.
Otherwise, I'd be impressed to see some of the techniques towards printing this and having a clean separation from support material. This (and deriviatives thereof) will hopefully rival things like: molded study models search.anatomywarehouse.com/search?keywords=foot&x=0&y=0
