- Cast-off Pattern
- A bloodstain pattern created when blood is released or thrown from a blood-bearing object in motion.
This example was generated by putting blood on a knife blade and swinging the blade in a downward motion in front of the target.
The volume of the drops and impact angles changed as the knife continued through its downward motion.
