e-NABLE: state of a movement empowered by 3D-printing

Inspired by a trans-continental collaboration between a South African carpenter and a Washington State prop-maker, e-NABLE has become a movement with chapters in 100 countries and a presence (in the form of 3D printed prosthetic hand devices) in many makerspaces.  

e-NABLE's 3D pioneers are prototyping of an emerging pattern: "Connected Humanitarianism" in which open source methodologies, and digital collaboration tools exemplified by 3D printing are used to design and deliver radically inexpensive solutions to underserved populations. 

By understanding,  amplifying, and generalizing e-NABLE's successes, and by  recognizing and addressing e-NABLE's shortcomings, the 3D-printing community can help make the world a better place.
