ROBO 3D (www.robo3d.com) will be printing with a purpose at CES 2016 and ShowStoppers.

The company will be demonstrating its latest 3D printers with 3D Prosthetic Print Kits as part of its partnership with e-NABLE, a global network of passionate volunteers using 3D printing to "give the world a helping hand."

After CES, every 3-D printed prosthetic hand and arm will be donated to children and adults who need them through the e-NABLE community.

WHEN: January 6-9, 2016 during CES 2016 being held in Las Vegas, Nevada

WHERE: CES booth #72535 Tech West, Sands Expo - Level 2

WHY: In 2016, ROBO 3D will include an e-NABLE prosthetic limb 3D Print kit with every ROBO 3D printer purchase to encourage people to get involved with the e-NABLE community and allow individuals to immediately utilize their new 3D printer tool to give back.

The e-NABLE prosthetic limb 3D Print Kit will include:

  • 3D Print files that you download and print at home
  • All the hardware necessary to assemble the prosthetic
  • Instructions on how to assemble
  • "Get Involved" links with explanation on building your prosthetic and how to send it to a child to make a difference.

UPDATE:

ROBO 3D (robo3d.com) is pleased to announce that its "Printing with a Purpose" campaign it ran during the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas has resulted in a donation of 35 3-D printed prosthetics to the Enable Community Foundation (www.enablecommunityfoundation.org), a global network of passionate volunteers using 3D printing to "give the world a helping hand."

These donated prosthetic pieces were used in Enable Community Foundation's recent 'Hand-a Thon' held on the expo floor during BodyHacking Con in Austin. Conference participants gathered together to assemble these pieces into hands as a team building event.

"Thirty-five prosthetic hands were put together during the event, with the majority of the pieces coming from ROBO 3D," said Melina Brown, director of case management and quality assurance for the Enable Community Foundation. "We are currently targeting the underserved communities of Latin America to receive them."

"Since our company started around the idea of 3D printed prosthetics, it's a natural progression for us to partner with the Enable Community Foundation," added Braydon Moreno, ROBO 3D founder. "We encourage our own ROBO 3D community to get involved and experience the impact one can make on someone's life and make a difference through 3D printing."

All ROBO 3D printers not only come with twenty 3D files ready to print to get you started on your 3D printing adventure but also "Get Involved" information with explanation on building your prosthetic and how to send it to a child to make a difference.
