Like there are thousands of such volunteers! Them all over the world
Without them, these children may never have the ordinary happiness.
Lost an arm fighting the children receive gifts.
These gifts make them reborn …
These volunteers come from a charitable group called the E-Nable. This is a Google+-based online communities. Initiator is Jon Shull. His 2013 called for worldwide 3D printers to create for a goal together, need prosthetic friends print combinations of parts. He is set up E-Nable on the network map, people can have a 3D printer to register, make friends in need receive recent aid.
This kind of magnanimous Act, it won’t take too much time, with PLA printed materials is not high, but it can help a friend rehabilitation of upper limb disability, so why not?
In Jon’s call, players continue to grow, Star, engineers, military personnel, doctors, teachers and other people from all walks are to provide their ideas, and together, they assist other members to jointly create better 3D printing arm.
Jon did not want them just to help manufacture artificial limbs and to focus more on how to influence and get, therefore spend a lot of time teaching guidelines and more people learned to make 3D print artificial limbs, and encourages the Institute continued to spread the word.
Iron man to join!
In 2014, the E-Nable through news events on numerous stage shows its 3D print artificial limbs, in 2015, they also received Google60 million dollars of investment.

In the past year, from a creative online, developing into groups now has more than 3200 people and providing about 700 3D printing arm. We seem to be growing steadily at about 1-5% per week, and the momentum has continued to improve.
We don’t know if it will eventually grow to what extent expected after one year no answer to this question. But what is certain is, we will achieve greater success after a year.
