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.
