Get back into curriculum-planning mode with a free 3D printing project! See one of the many ways you can incorporate 3D printing into the school year with the Snap-Together Robohand project. This project is ideal for teachers and students new to 3D printing with little design experience.


In this project, students will:

  • Understand the basic components needed for a prosthetic hand
  • Recognize the role 3D printing plays in bringing down the costs of prosthetics
  • Discuss how the Robohand’s existing design could be improved and what changes may be needed

Design Difficulty: No 3D design required
