Exciting announcement of support from Google.org today! e-NABLE has received a $600,000 grant as part of the Google Impact Challenge focused on disabilities.  Read more below.
 
For growing children, finding proper prosthetics can be an expensive and difficult process. 

To address this, Google.org gave a grant to scale the work of e-NABLE, a global community of volunteers who work together to create 3D printed prosthetic hands and arms. Using #opensource designs and new tools for sizing and fitting, their volunteer network will be able to reach even more communities in need.

Looks like they might not be using a heated chamber if they're rafting to blue tape.  
ShareBot exclusively revealed to 3DPI that they have completed its research and development phase for Project Snowhite the development of an SLS 3D printer.

Check out the gantry on this machine (and the price).  One to watch.  And finally some innovative design on a kickstarted bot.

The first truly consumer 3D printer should be incredibly intuitive, easy to own, and seamless by design.
