I am currently working on a 3D printed brace for patients with a wrist fracture. Somebody else already created this brace and optimised it to the shapes and forces of his own hand in Siemens NX. My job is to create a system that automatically makes an optimised and personalised brace for patients whenever you have a 3D scan of the patients arm. This is mainly because doctors should be able to create this brace and they do not know a lot about software like Siemens NX, so that would take up a lot of time.
I have contacted quite some people and they have all told me to use Grasshopper in Rhino to do this. However, I am not that experienced in Rhino and not at all in Grasshopper. Do you know if this even is possible and do you have any tips on how I can make this system? Do you have any ideas on how I can make this system easily? I think there are two options. Either I make a system that personalizes the already optimised brace, that was created in Siemens NX, to the dimensions from the scan. Or I make a system that both personalizes and optimises the brace at once. I would think the first option is easier to create right?
I hope I have explained this clear enough. Thanks in advance!
