The Helping Hand Project: 3D Printed Prosthetic Devices

AUG 17, 2018

The Helping Hand Project is a non-profit organization that specializes in providing 3D printed prosthetic hands-free of charge for children in need. Combined with the Raise3D N2, the Helping Hand Project utilizes the volume of the printer for many applications just like this one. For 5-year-old Jacob, the Helping Hand team created a custom Star Wars inspired prosthetic hand-tailored to fit Jacob’s needs and unique geometry. Now, this Storm Trooper prosthesis allows him to grip objects with ease.
