Prosthetic leg concept - It's essentially a fairing designed around an existing prosthetic to provide the wearer the opportunity to let their prosthetic have shape and be more expressive. With rapid prototyping, the potential to create custom designs is readily available. Bespoke Innovations (bespokeinnovations.com) already provides this service. I just wanted to develop my own interpretation!
Prosthetic fairing - I removed sections of the solid based on the flow of the pattern.
Prosthetic pattern - I projected a line onto the surface of a 3D scan of a leg. From the top view, this is the pattern that emerged. I clustered them and projected them from the front view to get some pretty cool patterning on the model.
Projected pattern
Early concept - Rough modeling of some early concepts exploring abstract exaggerations of muscles. Designing around an imported scan of a leg.
Early concept 2 - Rough modeling of some early concepts exploring abstract exaggerations of muscles. Designing around an imported scan of a leg.
Early concept 3 - Rough modeling of some early concepts trying patterns on surfaces. Designing around an imported scan of a leg.
