I finally finished the plush model of my knee that I’ve been working on for the past few weeks. I used the images my doctor took from inside my knee during surgery, plus anatomical illustrations I found online to construct this bendable model of my knee. The ligaments are attached with elastic so that they stretch when the joint bends.
