Baby foot

Post by dhellew2 »

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.

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.
