Baby foot

Postby dhellew2 » Thu Apr 07, 2016 4:02 pm

I've been looking for a full 3d model of a size 1 (or infant) baby foot to make a rubber foot to fit inside a baby shoe which will be attached to a cane or walking stick.
I've searched the web several times looking for 3d and stl files without any success.

Up to now I have been stuffing them with bubble wrap, paper, plastic, etc. but it does not hold up very long.

I believe a soft poured urethane or maybe latex would be better

The canes and carved walking sticks are given to folks that need one free of charge.

Thanks, Dale

Dale...
Have you looked into a high density 2 part urethane pourable foam?

Have you looked at Make Human? It appears to be able to model infants as well as adults.

IslaWW Yes, thanks, pour-able two part foam is one of the items I have in mind but prefer to have it removable so the sock and/or shoe can be replaced. It will fill the sock toe then fit part way around a standard cane tip. This is the reason I want to make a form to make the shape, poured or carved. Urethane density can be changed to get the best possible firmness.

Euan, thanks for the info, I'll check it out.
