How do I interface my existing CAD/CAM prescription foot orthotics system into a 3D printing system?
Our orthotic design system is essentially DOS based, and functions only for foot orthotic design and creation. We scan (optical laser scanner) the foot image into the system, then design the aspects necessary to address specific patient biomechanical issues. The completed design is uploaded to a CNC for milling out of medium density fiberboard, 6 pair (12 individual feet) on a single board, about 19” x 29”. Milling an entire board takes about 22 minutes.
