Prototyping: 3D Printed Attachment

Small World Social Breastfeeding Support Program: Progression of 3D Printed Attachments.

After many long design talk with Madeline Sands, Aerospace Engineer Tony Kerr has continued to work through the camera angle issue, developing three new prototypes for testing in the studio week.  The new designs aren’t just brightly coloured they have a new surface shape that is capturing the babies chin angle more clearly. 

The newest prototype introduces a convex mirror system that expands the field of view. A hinge has also been introduced into the design and this will better accommodate differences in angle and position. Tony has put in some really long hours on the project over the last week and is determined to crack the design problem.  RMIT’s industrial design team (Scott Mason and Liam Fennessy) are continuing to support the project team.
