EXCERPT: Cerritos College students recently helped set a world record.

Students in the community college’s new product development program joined a 3-D print-a-thon Dec. 14 in Costa Mesa to make 201 prosthetic hands, and in the process were part of running 170 3-D printers simultaneously in one location and setting a Guinness World Record.

AirWolf3-D, a 3-D printer manufacturer, hosted the record-setting event at its Costa Mesa location on behalf of the nonprofit Robohand, which was started by Richard van As, a South African who severed the fingers on his right hand in a 2011 woodworking accident.

Cerritos College students used six 3-D printers from the new product development program, which equips students with a cross-section of skills, including engineering design, business and machine tool technology.

Miodrag “Mickey” Micic, chair of the program, helped the students set up the equipment.
