3D printed prosthetic arm

Prosthetic Arm

Over the span of 8 months, Preston Tobery worked with his friend Charles Talbert to create a prosthetic arm. A plaster cast of Charles' arm was created and 3D scanned. This allowed the creation of a custom fitted sleeve for better comfort. The arm models were both found on e-nable's website and custom created by Preston.

3D printed brain

Brains for Kids

Working closely with the Neurocognitive Development Lab, the children have MRIs completed of their brains. We then take the MRI data and create a 3D printable model. The goal of their research is to learn more about how cognitive abilities, such as memory, develop in infants and children. Each child goes home with their very own brain!

Print Time: 18 hours

Created: June '17 - June '18
