3D Printing Prosthetics in the Developing World, an Interview with 3D Life Prints

Some time ago I wrote an article about a venture called 3D Life Prints, based in Nairobi, Kenya. I now had the chance to speak directly with the organization’s founder, Paul Fotheringham.

Fotheringham set out on using 3D printing to locally manufacture some of the items that are needed most: in many cases, that means prosthetics.

Students Create a 3D Printed Prosthetic Biker Leg, Electricity Generator, & More at 24-Hour 3DPrintathon

“Why should 3D printing be in schools?” That’s a question I find myself having to answer over and over in response to questions posed by educators and school administrators who are relatively unfamiliar with the technology. My response is usually an easy one. I simply point them to the plethora of stories that we have covered on the amazing things that 3D printers have allowed students to create.
