Airwolf 3D Creates New Prosthetic for Orange County Girl
Back in December, 2014 Airwolf 3D printed over 200 prosthetic hands for children in need, and also broke a world record while doing it. This project was one of the most meaningful Airwolf 3D projects to date. Working with Robohand USA, the 3D printing company hosted the event at their headquarters in Costa Mesa, CA, and featured over 150 printers running at the same time, all printing parts for the prosthetic hands.
Airwolf 3D is at it again, but this time has partnered with e-NABLE (3D prosthetic hand organization) and Build It Workspace (a community maker space with high-tech equipment and friendly, knowledgeable staff) to create a new prosthetic for one special little girl from Orange County, CA. E-NABLE has created the 3D files, while Airwolf 3D will be printing the parts and Build It work space will assemble the final hand with assistance from e-NABLE.
The fitting will take place Tuesday, March 31st at the Build it Work Space in Los Alamitos, CA, and can be seen on CNN, KTLA, ABC, and more. Keep checking the Airwolf 3D blog for news and progress on this project.
