Summary

A Prosthesis you can scale to any size and fit for someone who really needs it. Currently only 1/4 scale but 1:1 soon to come.

Instructions

Download the file and scale it to the required dimensions and split to print it on your bed size. Created in response to the Freelancer.com competition. Also, I'm trying to create a openSCAD modifiable file of the .stl. If anyone knows how to do this or if its possible then please let me know.

I appreciate what you're attempting with this project, but it looks like the way you've designed it, the residual limb would "bottom out" in the socket? Let me tell you from experience that you do not want to be bottoming out in your socket as it is quite painful! Most prosthetic legs are worn by either creating firm pressure on the soft tissues of the limb while having reliefs so the tibia and fibula are not compressed or rubbing on anything, or by shaping the socket in such a way that the weight is borne by the patellar tendon, and held onto the limb via a vacuum using a silicone or neoprene sleeve. I'm not sure your design as it stands would be functional.
