How A Coloradan’s Hobby And A 3-D Printer Offers A Helping Hand To People In Need

What if you could use a 3-D printer to simply and relatively inexpensively create prosthetic limbs? Jacquin Buchanan of Fort Collins is part of an international network of people who do just that — and they do it for free. The project is called e-NABLE and Buchanan, a software engineer, tells Colorado Matters about the devices, and how he became involved with his work. He recently designed a new arm for an 8-year-old Zadie Wilson of Kansas City, Missouri, and soon will start work on a device for a child in Denver.
