Description

Description

In this class, we will go through a project with Paralympic cycling champion Denise Schindler to show how working with her we were able to create a totally new manufacturing and design method for the production of prosthetics. This process has turned an analogue industry into a digital one, making the production and manufacturing of prosthetics digitally distributable, while also removing errors created by working by hand. This session features Fusion 360.
