Prosthetic leg covers: Designed for mass customization
Published on August 23, 2022
Key Software Capabilities
- Design automation
- Lattice structures
- Surface textures
Additive manufacturing enables us to create an aesthetically pleasing prosthetic cover with better fit and custom designs. Prosthetic leg covers restore balance to the silhouette of the leg and play an instrumental role in raising patient confidence and self-esteem.
In this nTop Live, Yuki Okada, Technical Marketing Engineer at nTop, shows you how to generate multiple design variations of a prosthetic cover in nTop. He imports a basic CAD design and uses nTop’s latticing capabilities to create unique patterns and textures on the surface of the cover.
Watch and learn how to:
- Create custom prosthetic leg cover designs for light weighting and aesthetics
- Generate a lattice structure that conforms to the surface of the prosthetic cover
- Add customizable perforation patterns to reduce weight
