For this project I designed fully functional 3D printed roller-blades. This project was CAD intensive as I was designing the skates custom for my feet by taking an outline of foot and a few dimensions around my ankle. After the initial design I used FEA tools to stress test different plausible wheel loads and see what appropriate thicknesses were needed for areas on the skates and where material could be eliminated. I then 3D printed them using standard desktop printers. They assembled with a few screws and used standard roller-blade wheels. You can see me skate in them above, I eventually made a matching pair.
KEY SKILLS: CAD, FEA, Rapid Prototyping
