    Default E-Nable Prosthetics Part 1: Dante

    Hi folks.
    I've never posted about these things before, but thought I might post now since its the last day of 2015.

    Its been a good year in many ways, and this is definitely one of those reasons.
    I've been a member of the E-Nable organisation for over a year now, and have been very fortunate to collaborate with a Robotics school in Wisconsin, America.
    The school is named SFRobotics and ran by Peter Graven.

    Together with myself living on the tiny Island of Malta we have collaborated to design and decorate these prosthesis in our spare time.
    We have created aesthetically fun designs that are specifically asked for by each recipient.

    This couldn't be done without ZBrush.

    The use of Dynamesh, subtraction operations, as well as sculpting were pivotal for each design.
    The original files are open source and available on ThingyVerse. But over time I have updated the gauntlets to suit our needs.

    Below I shall post all the projects we have worked on together so far, we've done quite a few.

    All images were taken by both Peter Graven and myself.

    This is young Dante. His hero is Spiderman.
    I subtracted grooves in the palm, and later the class of SFRobitcs filled the grooves with black rubber webbing.










    Before the rubber webbing idea we considered printing out the fingers as separate red, black and blue pieces.Quite involved. Thankfully the class had many good suggestions.

    Regional news covered the story of Dante at this link here.
    At the bottom is some news video footage of Dante receiving is prosthetic.

    Love the spider man theme, as cool as the Wolverine themed one I saw a few months back.
    This is the best part of 3D printing for me. so many people are doing this for family, friends and even people they don't know!

    Inexpensive prosthetics are now accessible to far more people, and they are better in many cases than the official alternatives.
    The media goes wild about 3D printed guns, but this is what it's all about!

    Humanitarian + Technology = Progress!

    This touches me.
    Thank you for doing this, thank you for showing that a community and digital tools can move things into a better world.

    I love the proud children faces wearing their special device.

    My deepest respect and best wishes to all involved in this wonderful project.

    Cool cool cool Jonathan. Great real-world application of the craft.

    I would love to help E-Nable, checking out their website now. I may have questions later if you don't mind.

    Default E-Nable Prosthetics

    Thanks everyone.
    Delighted to have made top row with this work, and its only the first posting on this topic.
    There are about 7 going 8 prosthetics in total. Each presenting their own unique technical challenges.
    I'll gradually get them all posted here very soon.
