What is E- Nable?• Group of Volunteers, helping children who are missing fingers or hands due to war, disease, or birth defects by printing 3D prosthetic hands from crowd-sourced designs. • Low-cost solutions for children with upper limb deficiencies.  This is crowdsourcing in its purest form:  volunteers who build on each other’s ideas and share them with the rest of the world for the greater good. • More than 1,400 people with prosthetics at no cost over the past year. The 3-D printed prosthetics are particularly useful for children. They often grow out of prosthetics and can't afford replacements every few months or years. The 3-D versions also can be lighter and easier to use — and come in their favorite color! In particular, the group is interested in building alliances with aid workers in war-torn regions, disaster zones, and impoverished communities where inexpensive and easily attainable prosthetics
