Wearables project: Rapid prototyping

Fresh print with support material still attached.

Support material removed and tentative white foam rubber padding added.

I can see right away that many tweaks to this design will be necessary.  The front part of the form looks okay, and is similar to what I had in mind.

But the back side of the form is bulky, awkward, and slightly uncomfortable.  Francois agrees.

Compared to original paper model. 

I may have to start over, but considering this process only took a few hours, I'm happy to learn from mistakes and have another go at it.  This is the beauty of rapid prototyping!
