#maketheworld – e-NABLE Community – #3DThursday #3DPrinting

9 e NABLE Community Google 2

One of the crucial community sites for sharing insights into the technical execution for the Make The World: Prosthetics project will be the e-NABLE community on Google+.

Initially drawing together specifically to create and customize version for the Robohand project, this community is also looking to roll up its sleeves and accomplish great 3D printed assistive technology in other avenues as well.

From their information page:

e-nable:

a global, distributed, volunteer, pay-it-forward network for 3D-printed prosthetics

The potential here is even larger than Robohands: a global volunteer assistive technology network built on an infrastructure of electronic communications, 3D printing, and good will!

MAKEtheWORLDprosthestics
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit — and today we will be sharing about Make The World: Prosthetics, a one month program on Google+ aimed at crowdsourcing the manufacturing and delivery of printed prosthetics to people in need, hosted by Adafruit’s Limor Fried, Matt Griffin and Phillip Torrone. Key partners on the program include Robohand, MakerBot, The Open Hand Project, Anthromod, Prosthetics for Prosperity, e­NABLE, The Lucky Fin Project and Hands for Africa.

Adafruit’s Makers, Hackers, Artists and Engineers Community under the subsection “Make the World” is hosting this month long effort. Community members will post up with what they can help with, suggest people in need, and post pictures of their accomplishments/builds. In addition Makers will be able to find support for the creation of Robohands in the e­NABLE Community on Google+.
