3D printing technology is providing people who have lost their limbs to lead a normal life by creating for them artificial limbs. It is a very revolutionary technology that is finding application in many fields.

A group known as Enabling The Future has been building 3D printed prosthetic hands for kids who are missing fingers. These hands are given for free!

Now Aaron Brown, a volunteer and maker for this group, has built a set of Wolverine claws that are compatible with the prosthetic hands. These are available at Thingiverse.

Brown worked in factories before joining night club security where he worked for 7 years. He says playing with technology has always been his passion and hobby on the side when he was working.


When his grandfather passed on last year, he was left with some small amount in his grandfather’s will – just enough for him to start his own business.

He is now working on a small 3D print shop and has been building Wolverine hands for kids for sometime.

This shows how 3D printing has become very useful and it’s exiting to see that people can move from their jobs to become full-time makers using 3D printing.
