Peter Hanely from California designed the first version of the coupling for the project to make the Marchena Cane divisible.
This link fits onto itself, so the design is very easy to replicate for production. The design is also made in such a way that the current cane can be easily adapted. The VIB does not have to buy a new cane!
Naturally, the link will be tested by our discerning VIB test team (Oh dear!) and improved on the basis of their feedback.
The first step for enhancement of the Marchena Cane is there!
Peter has designed more beautiful things, you can admire his works of art on his shapeways site and download the 3D print files for your own project for a friend’s prize.
For the more technically inclined, here is the link to Peter’s github Project page.
