This is the class ring I designed a few years ago.  I finally found a reasonable, affordable direct metal manufacturer.  I have attached the original Solidworks capture animation and pictures of the finished ring on my hand.

This is the Space Frame Cane.  I designed it having resigned to the fact that, over longer spans, my gait is still suffering from the surgery.

The cane is 38 inches in length.  It is designed with horizontal platforms spaced according to a brief progression of a Fibonacci Sequence.  Made out of 7075 Aluminum, it will be stronger than most crow bars, but weighing in almost exactly at 1 pound!
