Using your 3D printer for the good of humanity

In 2013,  I was fortunate to see a video of a young South African boy named Liam who had just received a new prosthetic hand thanks to the work of Richard Van As and Ivan Owen. That one minute video changed my life. Watch it yourself and you’ll see what I mean.

Little Liam was so cute and had so much determination, his perseverance lead to a worldwide movement called e-NABLE. I joined the movement about 5 minutes after watching this video. Now, three plus years later, thousands of children across the world have received free 3D printed prosthetic hands and arms. I have printed and assembled more than 50 hands and two arms and enjoy the best hobby in the world.
