Dad Built His Son A Hand With 3D Printer And Now Makes Them For Other Kids For Free

When Michael Campos’s 4-year-old son asked him to “build me a hand,” no wasn’t an option, so his awesome dad got to work. Four-year-old

Four-year-old Carter, was born without a right hand and although he was getting by just fine, his dad wanted to do this for him.

At first, Michael had no idea what he was doing since it was a long process of learning and trial and error. Then he connected with e-NABLE, who are a group of volunteers who are specialized in producing prosthetic hands.

Finally, Michael had produced the hand his son wanted, but along the way he picked up another mission as well. I mean, how can you deny the smile that a cool artificial hand makes? Considering that each hand costs between $10-50 to make, he and Carter started to make them for other kids that needed them, at no charge.

Now they call it “Claws From Carter”, and they make all kinds of cool custom designs. From superheroes to sports teams, you name it!

Michael has also added a glow-in-the-dark fidget spinner to Carter’s latest deigns because why not make it even more awesome, right?

The reactions Carter and Michael have got are absolutely beautiful with smiles aplenty from the kids they’ve helped.

Of course, the folks at e-NABLE had high praise for their efforts, too. “Michael and Carter are everything that the e-NABLE Community hoped for from the very start,” Jen Owen, a volunteer wrote.

And the mission is still continuing for this amazing twosome. Not only are they making hands for other kids but they are also sharing their experience too by helping other families learn how to make their own 3D printed hands. How inspiring is this?
