Anatomic Human Foot & Lower Extremity Version 2.0
by DrGlassDPM, published
UPDATE 9 August 2013
-refined geometry in the foot and ankle. Some people were troubled with the faceted geometry before, so now it should print smoother
UPDATE 31 January 2013
-Added Ankle and Knee Joints with 4 additional bones (Fibula, Tibia, Patella, and distal Femur)
-Vastly improved Metatarsals
-Corrected Foot alignment
-Talus has been completely revamped from a low polygon retopology from 123D Catch reconstruction of Cadaver Specimen.
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 @ www.YouTube.com/DrGlassDPM
Anatomic study models can be quite expensive, http://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!
Version 2: I've decided not to include individual STL's of each bone. Instead, I've included the Lightwave LWO file, which has every bone (and skin) in low poly. It will be easier this way for me to update the model at a faster rate.
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 http://search.anatomywarehouse.com/search?keywords=foot&x=0&y=0
