Here is a link to all source, stl, and gcode files _____

Tools needed for fabrication of the OSAT

Skills and Knowledge Necessary to Make the OSAT

  • Basic knowledge for 3D printing with your printer of choice
  • Measurements for limb (such as width and length necessary for snug fit)

Technical Specifications and Assembly Instructions

  1. Download files from link above
  2. Make necessary modifications of code (such as measurement of fit for limb)
  3. Prepare printer and load .gcode file or slice the .stl how you like and then export a .gcode file
  4. Print, remove supports, smooth out any rough edges, and strap limb in with sleeve (sleeve not provided)
  • Estimated print time: ____

Common Problems and Solutions

Fit of Prosthetic

  • It is essentially to make sure measurements are correct prior to printing. You may need to go into the code and make sure that the radius of the opening is correct, as well as the length needed to fit around the limb. Measurements should be taken after putting on sleeve that will allow for prosthetic to stay in place.
  • If the fit is slightly too tight, you can try carving out some space as needed.
  • If the fit is slightly too long, you can try adding material in the front of the prosthetic to fill that space.
  • If the fit is slightly too big, you can try adding an additional sleeve to fill the empty space around the limb.
  • If the fit is much too big/small or much too long/short, it would be best to remeasure and reprint the prosthetic.

Cost savings

  • Estimated costs

__

  • Commercial equivalent

  • $ savings and % savings
