An interactive sketch-based tool that lets you create organic structures such as this robot's new leg.
The current version is limited to a few platforms. Let me know if you'd like to run Forté on something different.
Let's get you started with Forté by redesigning this leg for a quadruped robot.
Forté's tool bar, just for future reference.
Step 1: You start by drawing this curve, which represents how you want the new robot leg to look like.
Step 2: You then draw the load (the weight of the robot's body) in red arrow, and the boundary condition (the ground where the leg stands) in blue.
Step 3: Then hit the ▶ button to play with different techniques you can select from the dropdown list.
Step 4+: Your turn! Play with the tool.
