making a kinematics belt

beltDiagram2

We decided to make a belt as the next step towards realizing our Kinematics concept dress. We used a Kinect depth camera to produce a 3D scan of my stomach. Then we used our kinematics software to design the belt and computationally fold it for 3D printing. After folding, the bounding box of the belt was about 60% smaller. This print will provide us with some feedback about fit and durability before we move forward with a dress.
