I sprained my ankle on Friday and have a bright and shiny pair of crutches to show for my troubles. After combing through Thingiverse, I was able to find only one crutch accessory – Darthcarter’s crutch tip featured above.
Thus, I propose an OpenSCAD design challenge – please create for me some accessories for my crutches. They can be anything at all – perhaps an attachment for crutches that would give it a gripper claw extension, maybe a hook for holding the crutches up on a wall when not in use, or perhaps a clip for holding the two crutches together when I set them down. This is my first time using crutches, so I’m sure there are a million little improvements for them.
9000 MakerBlock-backed certified internet points to the first person to design some kind of a crutch accessory or improvement in OpenSCAD and upload it to Thingiverse.1 9000 additional MakerBlock-backed certified internet points to the most practical crutch accessory or improvement. Please tag your Thing with “makercrutch” so that I can find them!
FYI, this is my challenge alone and not from MakerBot Industries. I am the only source of MakerBlock backed certified internet points and imaginary currency.
- One of the reasons I’m making this an OpenSCAD challenge is that I can’t hobble around my workroom looking for my calipers in order to measure my crutches! [↩]
